Postdoc Position, Multiscale Methods & UQ, Univ of Bath

The University of Bath is seeking applicants for a 42-month Research
Officer position on an exciting new project in “Multiscale modelling
of aerospace composites - Increasing Quality, Reducing Empiricism and
Challenging Conservatism.”

Candidates with a PhD in a Science/Engineering subject with
significant mathematical content, a solid background in numerical
methods for partial differential equations and experience of
programming and implementation of numerical methods are encouraged to
apply. Experience in some of the following areas will be a distinct
advantage: structural/composite mechanics, FE analysis, multiscale
discretisation techniques, stochastic uncertainty quantification,
statistics. Candidates should be self-motivated and possess project
management and technical communication skills.

For further details and the online application form see:

The successful applicant will work in a vibrant, multidisciplinary
team of engineers and mathematicians to develop novel mathematical
modelling and uncertainty quantification tools that will challenge
conservative stress/strain limits and reduce the high cost of
certification in aerospace manufacture as well as the high design-
to-manufacture time. An embedded university-industry partnership with
GKN Aerospace, one of the main composites manufacturer for the
aeronautical industry, will guarantee immediate impact of this

Closing date: Thursday, 31 October 2013
