Chalmers International Postdoctoral in Engineering Materials

  • PHD
  • Salaried
  • 22 February 2021

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) of metallic materials have attracted much industrial and scientific interest recently, but to fully take advantage of technique more knowledge is required. The manufacturing technique influences the micro-structure of the metal, and therefore also the mechanical properties of the final component. This two year position on mechanical properties of AM materials gives you the possibility to work in a dynamic and fast developing research field of great interest.

**Project description
**The position is a two year post-doc at the Division of Engineering Materials, Department of Industrial and Material Science. You will work on mechanical properties of additive manufactured metallic materials, including mechanical testing and analysis. The project is an EU project, and you will cooperate with other participants in the project.

The division is centered on the relationship between technological materials micro-structure and their mechanical properties. The dominant areas of research are the deformation and fracture behavior, and fatigue properties at various processing methods of metals as well as polymeric materials and composites. Experimental techniques used are different forms of mechanical testing, non-destructive testing with focus on mathematical modeling in combination with method development, various types of microscopy, image analysis and fractography.

**Major responsibilities
**Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in a research group. You will perform experimental work, analysis and reporting. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.
