The Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM is searching for PhD and postdoctoral scientists for research into hydrogen-assisted degradation of metals.

PhD Position material Science, Germany

As a part of the Fraunhofer Society, Europe’s largest application-oriented research organisation, the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM is a leading research centre in the experimental and theoretical characterisation of material properties. The objective of IWM is to develop solutions that improve the safety, reliability, durability and functionality of technical components and systems, thus making them more cost-effective, energy-efficient and economical.

In the framework of an EU-funded cooperative research project, Fraunhofer IWM is carrying out innovative research into the multiscale modelling of hydrogen-assisted degradation of metals. The position is available for the research in the field of atomistic modelling of hydrogen transport.

The successful applicant will benefit from excellent computer facilities and a high level of staff expertise. He or she will also be in close contact with other members of the project consortium, which include some of Europe’s most innovative industrial corporations and leading research institutes.

We expect you to have graduated with excellent results in physics, chemistry or materials science. You should be creative, proactive and capable of working with others in a multidisciplinary environment. Previous experience with atomistic simulation methods and strong programming skills present an advantage. Postdoctoral applicants should have a record of publication in high-impact journals. Excellent English communication skills and a willingness to learn German are essential.
