DOCC: 8 PhD fellowship positions for early-stage researchers
in the MSCA doctoral programme "Dynamics of Complex Continua" at the Universität
Innsbruck (second call for applications)
Located in the heart of the Alps, the University of Innsbruck is the largest research and education
institution in western Austria and provides an inspiring multidisciplinary atmosphere and excellent
facilities for research and learning in a spectacular environment.
The Marie Sklodowska-Curie doctoral programme DOCC (Dynamics of Complex Continua) hosts 15 PhD fellowship positions (7 positions already filled) for highly qualified early-stage researchers who
wish to obtain a doctoral degree in modelling and simulation of complex dynamical continuum
systems. In the present second call for applications we offer 8 positions in the research fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, civil and environmental engineering:
DOCC provides structured training in both research-relevant and professional skills by building
expertise in the intersectorally seminal fields of computational material, fluid and gas dynamics,
which procures multiple topical technological, societal and medical applications relevant to climate,
energy, safety, or nano and life sciences. DOCC prepares Europe‘s next top modellers to link
simulations and the real world within a multi-disciplinary environment, by providing beyond essential
technical expertise also the training in key abilities to communicate and transfer methods and
The University of Innsbruck offers an excellent research environment and high-level training, which
benefits from a team of group leaders from ten departments contributing to teaching, co-supervision
and international networking. DOCC fellows work in a stimulating international and interdisciplinary
research environment, with an individual mentoring programme that will provide an excellent basis
for a future career in academia or industry. Information on all participating groups, potential
supervisors and descriptions of the suggested research topics are provided at https://docc.eu.
Applicants can also propose and discuss possible own research topics with the specific group leaders.
The requested research group(s) or topic(s) should be indicated in the application.
The PhD research work should preferably start between June and August 2020, or as soon as possible
after. We offer an employment contract for 3 years, with an annual gross salary of around 40‘103
EUR (susceptible to taxes) for 40 hour/week employment. All PhD fellows will be liable to full medical
