The KU Leuven research groups Scientific Computing (Dept. of Computer Science) and Metals and Alloys (Dept. of Materials Engineering) collaborate on numerical multi-scale methods and software for material forming, focusing on modelling of phenomena that are relevant to metal forming industry.
This PhD project is part of a 4-year inter-university research project, funded by the Strategic Initiative Materials in Flanders (SIM), in which several other research groups are involved.
The aim of the PhD project is to develop new numerical algorithms and software to tackle complex interactions that occur in modern alloys subjected to abrasion and corrosion. The challenges are:
We offer a full time position as a PhD researcher for 1 year, to be extended to 4 years after positive evaluation. You will be receiving a monthly tax-free grant (1850 EUR net). In addition, health insurance and social security will be covered.
For more information please contact Prof. Dirk Roose, tel.: +3216327546, mail: email@example.com or dr. Jerzy Gawad, tel.: +3216327658, mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
