Deadline for applications(20 days ago)
Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Zentrum für Material- und Küstenforschung (HZG)Geesthacht
Doctoral candidate (m/f/d)
in the area of laser processing and structural integrity assessment
Reference code: 50009901_2 - 2019/WM 7
Commencement date: starting as soon as possible
The Institute of Materials Research of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht in Geesthacht, Germany, invites applications for a Doctoral candidate (m/f/d) in the area of laser processing and structural integrity assessment. The position is initially limited for three years (starting as soon as possible).
In an international scientific team you will work on interesting topics with the focus on integrity assessment and development of laser processed materials and structures for application in the automobile and aircraft industry. You will be responsible for the development and implementation of research projects in the area of laser additive manufacturing with an emphasis on the development of models for the prediction of fracture mechanical behavior of laser processed lightweight metallic structures. For this purpose, appropriate prediction models have to be developed and implemented in a commercial finite element program (i.e. ABAQUS). The designed project will be in close collaborations to experimental works within the research group so that realization of experiments is also expected. As a qualified researcher in the field of mechanics, materials engineering and laser material processing, you will be responsible for the scientific realization of the research topic. The possibility to obtain a PhD in the context of the research topic is given.
experimental study of laser additive manufacturing process for generation of high strength titanium structures
development, algorithmic formulation and numerical implementation of probabilistic models for the prediction and optimization of fatigue properties
identification of parameters for the models on basis of the experimental results
performance of systematic benchmarks between simulation and experiments
determination of the fatigue performance on basis of the process parameters
experimental study of laser processes for generation of high strength metallic structures
Master's degree in mechanical engineering, materials engineering, physics or related areas
programming skills (e.g., Python, C, C++)
experience in laser processing of metallic materials, materials engineering, fracture mechanics, numerical methods and the finite element method
excellent communication (good English language skills) and organizational skills, German language skills are an asset
creativity and being a team player
We offer you:
multinational work environment with over 1,000 colleagues from more than 50 nations
extensive options of vocational training (i. a. expert seminars, language courses or leadership seminars)
flexible working hours and various models to ensure the compatibility of family and career
excellent infrastructure including modern work spaces
remuneration according to the standards of the collective wage agreement TV-AVH including further social benefits
The promotion of equal rights is a matter of course for us. Severely disabled persons and those equaling severely disabled persons who are equally suitable for the position will be considered preferentially within the framework of legal requirements.
The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG), centre for materials and coastal research, is located near Hamburg and in Teltow, near Berlin. You can find more information at www.hzg.de.
The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is one of the 19 national institutions of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres e.V. (HGF). Around 1,000 employees carry out basic research and development work in close cooperation with national and international research institutions, research-oriented clinics and economic and public institutions.
At the Institute of Materials Research
some 200 scientists conduct research in the five sub-institutes "Materials Mechanics", "Materials Physics", "Materials Technology", "Magnesium Innovation Centre MagIC" and "Metallic Biomaterials".
