MSCA PhD Positions in Numerical Modelling of Highly Flexible Structures

THREAD is a unique network of universities, research organisations and industry which by addressing fundamental modelling problems will ultimately enable the field to better meet the needs of different industries. A group of 14 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will receive comprehensive training covering state-of-the-art research topics along the modeling of highly flexible slender structures for industrial applications (see below) as well as valuable transferable skills. They will benefit from close cooperation with twelve industrial partner organisations implementing a comprehensive programme of research secondments and contributing their experience.

Ph.D. candidates should ideally start on 1 April 2020 for 36 months. The salaries are defined by MSCA early-stage regulations.
