Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) is one of the leading research universities in the field of material science in Germany. The RUB draws its strengths from the wide range of scientific and engineering disciplines located at a single coherent campus and thus providing excellent infrastructure for interdisciplinary research projects. This highly dynamic setting provides a leverage effect enabling students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.

From the next possible date until 31 December 2023, we offer a postdoctoral research position (m/w/d) in a subproject of the collaborative research center “SFB TR103 From atoms to turbine blades – a scientific basis for a new generation of single crystal superalloys”. The subproject is situated at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulation (ICAMS) in the group of Prof. Stricker (Materials Informatics and Data Sciences) and aims to improve the understanding of the interactions of dislocations with dynamic ɣ/ɣ’ interfaces.

If the position is funded by third-party funds the employee has no teaching obligation.

To study the dynamic interaction of dislocations with interfaces, the candidate (m/f/d) will use Discrete Dislocation Dynamics coupled to a phase-field code. Simulation outcomes will be assessed in close collaboration with experimental groups.

Apart from professional skills, fluent English, both written and oral, is strictly required.

Please send your complete and informative application documents (informative cover letter, 1-page motivational letter, CV with certificates, 3 publications) as one pdf document by e-mail to Jun.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus Stricker: markus.stricker@rub.de.

Travel expenses for interviews cannot be refunded.

At Ruhr-Universität Bochum, we wish to promote the careers of women in areas in which they are underrepresented, and we would therefore like to encourage female candidates to send us their applications. Applications by suitable candidates with severe disabilities and other applicants with equal legal status are likewise most welcome.

We are looking for an outstanding candidate (m/f/d) with the following qualifications. At least two out of the following three are required, supported by an appropriate track record:

  • Background in computational materials science with applications in plasticity, ideally based on Discrete Dislocation Dynamics and/or Phase-Field modeling
  • Experience in programming with compiled languages (FORTRAN/C++)
  • Proficiency in deriving physical models and their implementation in computer code

Preferable skills include:

  • Experience with the Python programming language
  • Experience in coupling mixed language codes
  • Experience with Linux/Unix environments
  • Experience in modeling diffusion
