Department Metallurgy, Montanuniversitaet Leoben, Austria
The chair of Simulation and Modelling of Metallurgical Processes at the Department Metallurgy of the Montanuniversitaet Leoben () offers a Ph.
D. / Postdoc position in the area of convective mass transfer, alloy solidification and numerical process simulation. Based on an unusual observation of crystal avalanches during dendritic solidification of ammonium chloride-water alloys, their occurrence should be investigated systematically.
Beside planning and construction of corresponding experiments, the occurring velocity field should be measured with PIV and the whole process should be modelled by numerical simulation.
Both, the experimental work as well as the numerical simulations will be done in close cooperation with an English speaking international team.
The project is limited to three years.
Candidates should have a master-equivalent degree in technical or physical sciences. The working language is English.
