IMDEA Materials is looking for a Research Associate (PhD in Materials Engineering, Metallurgy, Mechanical Engineering, Computational Materials Science) to work in the research project VIRMETAL (virtual design, virtual processing and virtual testing of metallic materials) funded by an Advanced Grant of the European Research Council.
Research activities will be focused in the development of multiscale modeling strategies to simulate the microstructural development during solidification of metallic alloys.
Candidates should hold PhD in Materials Science, Metallurgy, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science (or related discipline) with excellent academic credentials and a strong commitment to develop an academic career in an international and multidisciplinary environment.
Fluent English (oral and written) is required. Previous experience in either molecular dynamics, computational thermodynamics and kinetics, phase field modeling, or computational continuum thermo-mechanical modeling is necessary.
