DESCRIPTION

IMDEA Materials Institute is looking for a Research Associate with PhD in Solid Mechanics, or Materials Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering, or Computational Materials Science to work in the research project MAFMA (multiscale modelling of fatigue in Mg alloys) funded by the Comunidad de Madrid. Research activities will be the development of multiscale modeling strategies for deformation and failure in Mg alloys under cyclic loading. In particular, dislocation dynamics, crystal plasticity and phase field modeling will be used to study the role of slip bands and twin bands on plasticity and microcrack nucleation during cyclic deformation. 

REQUIREMENTS

Candidates should hold PhD in Materials Science, Metallurgy, Mechanical Engineering, Solid Mechanics, Computer Science (or related discipline) with excellent academic credentials and a strong commitment to develop an academic career in an international and multidisciplinary environment. Programming skills with Fortran or C, and Fluent English (oral and written) are required. Previous experience in either finite element method, crystal plasticity, phase field modeling or dislocation dynamics simulations is necessary.

CONDITIONS

Full time contract including social security coverage. Salary depending on previous experience and credentials.
