DTU Tenure Track Researcher in the Correlation between Microstructure and Multi-Scale Mechanical Behaviour of Heterogeneous Materials – DTU Sustain

Spread the love

Would you like to be providing solutions for a sustainable future for a circular economy in the construction industry as part of a world-class research environment?

The section of Materials and Durability at DTU Sustain (Department of Environmental and Resource Engineering) is seeking outstanding candidates for a tenure-track Researcher position within the field of material science. Our section mainly focuses on the investigation and optimization of construction material properties, aiming at providing solutions for a sustainable future for a circular economy in the construction industry. The research is extended to multi-scale physical and mechanical behaviour of heterogeneous engineering materials under various environmental conditions and loading applications. Specific focus is on linking the physical and mechanical properties with the relevant microstructure, unravelling the fundamental mechanisms governing material damage and ultimate failure. A physics-based rather than an empirical and phenomenological approach is attempted to explain material deterioration process. This is the right place for you if you have a relevant academic background and want to fulfil your ambitions. We offer a world-class research environment at DTU and excellent opportunities for an inspiring academic career. You can foresee collaboration with enthusiastic colleagues in an inclusive workplace, well-equipped laboratories, industrial and international collaborations, and the interaction with ambitious engineering students.

Responsibilities and qualifications

The position focuses on the following:

  • 3D visualization of engineering material multi-scale damage processes
  • Microstructure characterization and research
  • Qualitative & quantitative correlation between microstructure and mechanical response 
  • Fabrication of environmental/mechanical rigs/devices for in situ imaging and testing
  • Participation in developing new projects, and grant applications.

As a qualified candidate, you have a background in Physics and Material Science/ Engineering. You have demonstrated the ability to perform high-quality scientific research independently. You have an excellent publication track record in high-impact factor scientific journals and successful records on receiving external funding. Successful candidates have: 

  • Research expertise documented by publications in heterogeneous material damage monitoring 
  • Expertise in X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT) data acquisition and Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) techniques 
  • Experience with the fabrication of mechanical devices for in situ X-ray imaging and testing.
  • Experience with synchrotron X-ray tomography and diffraction techniques
  • Strong collaboration skills documented by interdisciplinary publications 

You must be responsible for the teaching of courses. DTU employs two working languages: Danish and English. You are expected to be fluent in at least one of these languages, and in time are expected to master both.
