[Germany] PhD position in Ceramics Science at Darmstadt University of Technology

A PhD position (Doktorandenstellen ) is available at the Materials Science Department of Darmstadt University of Technology (Germany). The successful candidate will integrate a young research team focusing on the development of new ceramic processes in a dynamic and international work environment.

The drying is a necessary step in the manufacturing of ceramic layers when using particle suspensions. The evaporation of solvent induces shrinkage and stresses in the drying layer, which can create cracks and delamination from the substrate. Experimental work encompasses thin film processing and in-situ measurement of physical and mechanical properties by means of innovative techniques during drying. The experimental data will be used to develop a predictive model of drying.

Ideal candidates have a good background both in materials science and mechanics.

High motivation, ability to work in team but also autonomy, curiosity, very good experimental skills as well as interest in theoretical approaches are expected.

This project will include cooperative work in Germany and abroad.

Fluency in English is required, knowledge of German is appreciated.

Salary is funded by the German Research Organization (DFG) for a duration of 3 years, at the rate of 5/6 Bat IIa.

Envisioned start time: flexible, from May 2007

Darmstadt University of Technology specifically encourages female candidates to apply with a view towards increasing the proportion of female scientists. Handicapped persons with comparable qualifications receive preferential status.

Interested candidates should send their application per mail (in English or German, including a cover letter indicating their motivation to apply for this position, detailed CV, certificates, a short summary of research, references…). E-mail applications will not be considered.
