Ph.D Position in Data-driven Materials' Design (m/w/d)

23.02.2021, Wissenschaftliches Personal

The Professorship of Continuum Mechanics is part of Department of Engineering Physics and Computation in the School of Engineering and Design at the Technical University of Munich. The research efforts of the group center around the computational modeling of stochastic aspects with particular emphasis in solids/materials. Topics investigated include uncertainty propagation in physical and engineered systems, design and optimization in the presence of uncertainty, Bayesian inverse problems with applications in biomechanics, coarse-graining of atomistic descriptions and modelorder reduction.

A Ph.D. position is available on the development of novel modeling frameworks and computational tools that will accelerate the design of new materials with tailored or improved properties. The project is part of the ARTEMIS Innovation Network at TUM and involves close collaborations with other groups from Informatics, Chemistry and Engineering.
The research topic combines physical modeling of materials, computational mathematics and (probabilistic)machine learning. The work undertaken requires creative and analytical thinking and proficiency in scientific computing, often beyond the boundaries of traditional engineering. We aim at educating the best minds in a range of scientific fields and developing their ability to produce
new knowledge that advances scientific understanding and encompasses a wide range of applications. As a result, the completion of a PhD in our group can provide many academic and industrial opportunities for employment.
