For instruction on how to apply, please see

The Department of Applied Physics of KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden is looking for a PhD Student. The project is a collaboration with the Department of Mechanics for developing multi-scale methods to study structured surfaces and heat transfer. The candidate will investigate the stability and dynamics of the three-phase contact line under non-equilibrium conditions using molecular dynamics simulations. The group also hosts the main part of the development team for the popular GROMACS open source molecular simulation package, which will be used in these studies. Deadline: July 8 2019.

More details and how to apply at:

The Multiscale Modeling and Simulation MSME lab (MSME UMR 8208 CNRS) of the university Paris-Est offers a PhD scholarship in the domain of mechanics of materials.

The proposed subject concerns the modeling of fracture propagation in complex random media (i.e. materials whose mesoscopic properties are heterogeneous and described by a random tensor-valued field). The key issues are: (1) propagating the uncertainty from the micro- to the meso-scale; and (2) solving inverse statistical problems.

Interested candidates should have some knowledge of theory of probability and be able/interested in developing numerical codes.

For more information, please contact prof Christophe Desceliers ( who will supervise the PhD candidate.

The selected candidate will have to make an oral presentation on June 5, 2019.

Interested candidates should apply ASAP in order to go through all the application steps at best.

Please, feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who would find it of interest.
