Postdoctoral Researcher in Machine Learning for Fatigue Fracture prediction with commitment for the submission of a proposal in the framework of the MSCA Global Postdoctoral Fellowship 2022
Structural Integrity and MEchanical Design (SIMED) group is seeking a 1-year full-time Postdoctoral Researcher in Machine Learning applied to fracture mechanics. The successful applicant will work at the Polytechnic Engineering and Architecture Department (DPIA) of the University of Udine, under Dr Enrico Salvati’s supervision.
The project focuses, but not limited to, on feasibility study and application of Machine Learning methods to applied and numerical fatigue fracture mechanics problems.
The applicants will submit a project proposal on this topic or related ones. Project proposals relevant to the fields of fatigue are also welcome, e.g. residual stress, biomaterials, additive manufacturing, welding, multi-physics problems, etc.
The candidates should possess a doctorate in a relevant field with experience in fracture mechanics, FEM modelling, computational tools, probabilistic approaches and demonstrate willingness to learn new techniques. Strong interpersonal skills are required alongside the ability to work on a collaborative project. Maximum of 7 years of experience since completion of a PhD or an equivalent doctoral degree is required.
The call is dedicated to applicants committed to applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) Postdoctoral Global Fellowship 2022 (deadline 14th September 2022). This MSCA fellowship offers a great opportunity for a national or international early-stage researcher to work for up to 24 months in a non-EU state member and 12 months in the host institute (University of Udine).
A competitive salary will be offered, and a +20% salary add-on applies if the successful candidate holds the Seal of Excellence certificate. Additional funds (up to 8 k€) will be available to support the MSCA application. Annual leave and medical benefits will be offered
Appointment start date: no later than 15th May 2022.
