Ingenieur - Naturwissenschaftler - Mathematik/Physik - Ph.D. position in Predicitve Materials Modeling

The following project is conducted in the context of the Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship (IAS – TUM) of Prof. N. Zabaras (Univesity of Warwick, http://zabaras.com/) and will be co-supervised by Profs. Zabaras and Koutsourelakis (Fachgebiet für Kontinuumsmechanik, MW, TUM, www.contmech.mw.tum.de).

The integration of uncertainty quantification with materials science is of paramount importance as  material analysts always work with realizations of random microstructures, and  materials and structures operate under random (or uncontrolled) operating and design conditions. The present project  will pursue a set of fundamental problems in the interface of computational simulation and materials' engineering:
  • Predictive Modelling of Multiscale/Multiphysics (Materials) Processes
  • Emphasis on High Dimensionality
  • Emphasis on Rare Events
  • Data-Driven Design - Combinatorial discovery in materials
