As part of the SOLID Centre of Excellence (https://solid.dtu.dk/Job-Opportunities ), we are offering a PhD scholarship dedicated to the experimental investigation of martensite formation in conventionally and additively manufactured iron-based alloys at sub-zero Celsius temperature. The project will combine in-situ synchrotron and neutron imaging and diffraction techniques to track the formation of martensite from austenite, as well as the associated residual stresses in the phases during cooling and heating in the sub-zero Celsius temperature regime. Uniquely, the project aims to reveal the internal structure in martensite/austenite directly using dark field x-ray microscopy.
The position will be located in DTU, Department of Mechanical Engineering, the Section for Materials and Surface Engineering, which performs research in the field of materials science and engineering involving theoretical, experimental and numerical approaches. The research is multi-disciplinary and involves aspects of physics, mechanics, chemistry, and manufacturing technology. The section works on three broad themes: materials design and surface engineering, microstructure evolution and phase transformations, materials performance and degradation.
Responsibilities and tasks
The PhD will be working on the synthesis and microstructure characterization of iron-based alloys (steels) at large scale synchrotron- and neutron facilities. Correspondingly, travel to these large scale facilities and the ensuring data analysis and evaluation will be important aspects of the project. She/he will be working in the international, multidisciplinary environment of SOLID (https://solid.dtu.dk/Job-Opportunities ) and co-supervised by scientists with affiliations in the Mechanical Engineering and Physics Departments at DTU.
Candidates should have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree. We are specifically interested in applicants with a metallurgical background, or experience in characterizing microstructure using advanced synchrotron X-ray and/or neutron diffraction techniques.
Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide .
