Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) calls for applications to the Ph.D. Position on the Identification of constitutive laws with algorithms.
This open Ph.D. position aims to construct a robust constitutive modeling framework from a set of available state-of-the-art phenomenological models that can adapt to a wide range of material characteristics of different physics, while emulating various levels of nonlinearity and hysteresis, such that the properties of complex systems can be identified in a noninvasive way.
Duration: 4 years
- Literature study of system identification and constitutive modeling with focus on hysteresis.
- Establish an environment where the constitutive models are interpretable and allow for an efficient search space exploration.
- Employ evolutionary algorithms to recombine the models targeting a specific application.
- Exploration of the identification steps for the developed methods and design of experiments for validation purposes.
- Dissemination of the results of research in international and peer-reviewed journals and conferences.
- Writing a successful dissertation based on the developed research and defending it.
- Assume educational tasks like the supervision of Master students and internships.
- Successful integration in the Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence for Systems Institute.
- A gross monthly salary and benefits in accordance with the Collective Labor Agreement for Dutch Universities.
- Additionally, an annual holiday allowance of 8% of the yearly salary, plus a year-end allowance of 8.3% of the annual salary.
- A broad package of fringe benefits, including an excellent technical infrastructure, moving expenses, and savings schemes.
- A broad package of fringe benefits, (such as a pension scheme, pregnancy and maternity leave, partially paid parental leave, excellent technical infrastructure, moving expenses, and savings schemes).
- Family-friendly initiatives are in place, such as an international spouse program, and excellent on-campus children day care and sports facilities.
Applicants for this Algorithms position must meet the following requirements:
- have experience with or a strong background in physics, mathematics, and statistics. Preferably you finished a master’s in (Applied) Physics, (Applied) Mathematics, Statistics, Systems and Control, Electromechanical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering.
- talented and enthusiastic young researcher.
- have good programming skills and experience (Python is an asset).
- creative and ambitious, hard-working, and persistent.
- have good communicative skills, and the attitude to partake successfully in the work of a research team.
- have good command of the English language
Applications for this position on Algorithms must be submitted in English and should include
- a complete Curriculum Vitae (including a list of publications, if any);
- a cover letter (stating personal goal and research interests connecting to one or more of the topics defined above), max 1 page;
- transcripts of BSc and MSc degrees;
- at least one recommendation letter.
