Postdoctoral Position in Textile Simulation and Optimization


We are looking for a postdoctoral research fellow who has experience with developing and implementing computational algorithms for simulation and optimization in structural mechanics.
He or she will be involved in an interdisciplinary project for the development of a computational framework for the design of functional textiles. The objective is to develop and implement novel computational algorithms for a multi-scale and multi-physics simulation of functional textiles and fabrics, which will be at the core of a multifunctional design optimization framework. The position requires a deep understanding of structural mechanics concepts, as well as experience in algorithm development for computational simulation and optimization.
