PhD Student or Postdoc Within SINTEF`s Division for Materials and Chemistry (Norway)

Deadline: 28 August 2006

PhD student or postdoc (SINTEF`s Division for Materials and Chemistry, Oslo, Norway) PhD student (three years engagement) or postdoc (two years engagement)

Within SINTEF`s Division for Materials and Chemistry, a team of scientists develops mathematical models for metal processes such as casting, welding, and various forming operations. The research is focused on an in-depth understanding of the underlying physics, and the model development is based on a close interaction with experimental research activities and industrial use of the models. The projects are carried out in close collaboration with Norwegian and international industries, as well as internationally oriented research groups in and outside Norway.

Within a project entitled Casting Top Models, there is presently a vacant position for EITHER a PhD student (three years engagement) OR a postdoc (two years engagement). With focus on the physical phenomena occurring during solidification of aluminium alloys, the candidate will work on developing mathematical models addressing specific casting defects such as microporosity and hot tearing. Both continuum scale (finite element) and microscale models are relevant.

Casting Top Models is funded by Elkem Aluminium (Norway), Hydro (Norway), Corus (The Netherlands), and the Research Council of Norway. It is carried out by a team of researchers from the Institute for Energy Technology (Norway), The Netherlands Institute for Metals Research (The Netherlands), SINTEF Materials and Chemistry (Norway), and the industrial partners. The project team has close contacts also with other international research institutions.

  • Relevant background for applicants is an MSc (or equivalent) OR PhD in physics, mechanics or materials science, including a good knowledge and interest in the development and use of mathematical models.
  • SINTEF is an equal opportunity employer. We encourage female applicants. The working location will be SINTEF in Oslo.
  • If a PhD candidate is engaged, he/she will be enrolled as a PhD student at
    the University of Oslo.

  • A guest stay for some months at a foreign university will be encouraged.

We offer:

  • exciting and challenging research tasks based on industrially relevant
    challenges and approaches;

  • internationally oriented, skilful, experienced, creative, and
    collaborative research teams;

  • well-established national and international scientific and industrial

  • interesting career possibilities within science and industry.
