Category: PhD Student
Workplace: Barcelona, Campus Nord UPC
Salary (gross): 17.651,68€
Weekly working hours: 40h/week
Contract type: PhD
Duration: 4 years
Planned start date: January 1st 2024 as maximum
Functions to be developed:
A doctoral thesis in the framework of the research project entitled DMK-COMPOSITE – Degenerated-Multiscale-Kinematics (DMK) techniques title, in the coalification for the automatical learning assisted by materials, of Ref. PID2022-140249OB-I00, which principal investigators are Prof. Juan Cante Teran and Prof. Oriol Lloberas Valls, co-lidering the Computational Design & Analysis of Engineering Metamaterials group.
The thesis will be conducted within the context of one of the research lines of the group, focused on the computational design of advanced materials. The work is supported by three clearly established pillars: 1) Modelling the material's behaviour using multiscale techniques, 2) Optimization of both the material and the design through the combination of various tools from topological optimization, genetic algorithms, and the latest machine learning techniques, and 3) Development of reduced-order methods, adapted to the specific problem, to significantly reduce computational costs.
