Research Assistant in
Computational Mechanics


We are looking for a research assistant who is interested in developing and implementing computational algorithms for simulation and optimization in structural mechanics applications.
Our current research lies broadly in the field of computational mechanics and includes the development and implementation of novel computational methods for the discretization of ordinary and partial differential equations arising in structural and continuum mechanics (such as finite element methods and isogeometric analysis), multi-disciplinary design, shape and topology optimization methods, as well as application of those methods in digital design and additive manufacturing, e.g. 3D/4D printing, lattice structures, metamaterials, composites or textiles, and integration into computer-aided design-to-manufacturing approaches.
Depending on the interest, background and skills of the candidate, he or she will be involved in an interdisciplinary project which may cover several of above-mentioned research areas, providing ample opportunities to learn and develop one's skills.
