Openings for Graduate Students
I am currently looking for two graduate students at MSc or PhD level. Candidate must hold a degree in engineering (Mechanical, Civil, Naval Architecture, Structural or Aerospace) and must have a solid background in mechanics of materials and finite element modelling. Familiarity with FEM and programming software is desirable, particularly ABAQUS, Ansys and MATLAB, but others are also seen positively. Furthermore, the candidate must be able to write technical reports and to communicate effectively in professional and technical meetings.
Job description and qualifications:
Position 1 will include failure prediction of sandwich panels under compressive loading. In addition to the skills mentioned in the heading, ideal candidate has strong background in mechanics of composite materials and stability of structures.
Position 2 has emphasis on optimization of structures under nonlinear failure modes – buckling, yielding, fatigue and vibrations. In addition to the skills mentioned in the heading, ideal candidate has experience with structural optimization and marine structures.
If you are interested, please submit your academic records (BSc and MSc), cover letter, CV and one letter of recommendation. In the cover letter explain your motivation, why you are the right person for this position and when can you start.
