RWTH Aachen - Chair for Computational Analysis of Technical Systems
Research aim at our institute is to bridge the gap between simulation-based and experimental investigations for a variety of engineering problems. Focus is the development and assessment of both physical models and numerical methods. In most cases, the numerical methods are connected to complex applications. A selection of important research fields are stabilized finite element methods for fluids, numerical shape optimization and non-Newtonian material models. Please refer to www.cats.rwth-aachen.de for further information.
Simulation techniques have become an important instrument for the development, design and quality assurance of engineering components. Since its foundation in 2004, our institute conducts active research at the interface between mechanical engineering and applied mathematics. Our main focus is the development and implementation of numerical methods. Currently, we are searching for new doctoral candidates to complement our production engineering group.
Your task will be to model and simulate the chip formation for machining technologies like turning or grinding. You will introduce space-time finite elements and isogeometric analysis into the field. Regarding experimental validation, you will work in close collaboration with the Institute of Machining Technology of the Technical University of Dortmund.
Requirement for this position is a diploma or master’s degree in CES, engineering, applied mathematics, physics or a similar subject with a superior academic record. Practical programming experience in Fortran, C or C++ as well as with parallelization (MPI or OpenMP) are of advantage. Familiarity with UNIX operating system would be ideal. We expect you to contribute to general tasks at the institute, such as teaching and advising master or project theses.
What we offer:
The position is for one year and is to be filled as soon as possible. There is an option of extension for up to four more years. This is a full-time position. It is also available as part-time employment per request.
The successful candidate has the opportunity to pursue a doctoral degree.
The salary corresponds to level EG 13 TV-L.
