Science jobs from Chalmers University of Technology:
Information about the research/the division Details of the departmental research activities may be found at http://www.chalmers.se/am and http://www.chalmers.se/am/EN/research/divisions/material-computational.
Major responsibilities As a PhD student, your prime responsibility is to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research orally and in writing, both in Swedish and in English. The position also includes teaching on Chalmers' undergraduate level corresponding to 20% of full-time work. The PhD position is time-limited to maximum 5 years.
Position summary The main objective of the PhD project is to further develop Variationally Consistent Homogenization for the modeling of materials with a complex microstructure. Cemented carbides will serve as "model materials" as well as having significant industrial relevance and interest. The work is expected to be carried out in close collaboration with a partner group at the department of Applied Physics at Chalmers. The position is funded by the Swedish Research Council.
Qualifications A suitable background is a Master of Science (Swedish: civilingenjör) in mechanical engineering, engineering physics or civil engineering with emphasis on solid mechanics and/or computational methods (e. g. Finite Element Methods). Since communication of research results is a central part of the work, communicative skills in English (oral as well as in writing) are vital. If Swedish is not your native language, you are expected to be able to teach in Swedish after two years. It is expected that you can take on responsibility and work independently. However, it is also important that you are good at team worker. Finally, you must be able to disseminate results and knowledge within existing and new networks in academia, industry and society at large.
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master's level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in a relevant field.
