computational physics of multiscale phenomena
At the MSS we investigate the multiscale physics of particulate systems. The MSS hosts an interdisciplinary research team with a unique combination of scientists working numerically, theoretically and experimentally.
One of the most challenging tasks in computational physics is the investigation of phenomena which involve multiple length or time scales. Solving such multiscale problems is highly demanding but typically equally rewarding. The announced positions are dedicated to two topics from computational multiscale physics which are booth, scientifically appealing and application oriented:
- fracture in many-particle granular systems and
- granular pipe flow
Depending on your interests and qualification, further topics
from computational multiscale physics are possible.
You are highly motivated and you are deeply committed to research. You are able to work independently and as part of a team. You are equipped with an analytical and critical mind-set and you communicate clearly and concisely.
