Fundacion CIMNE Latinoamérica (FCL) opens a number of positions
for post-doctoral grants. The fellows should perform computational
mechanics research
in the field of computational material design, in the
Computational Material Design group at CIMEC
(Centro de Investigación en Mecánica Computacional) in Santa Fe,
Argentina ( http://www.cimec.org.ar/twiki/bin/view/Cimec/ ).


The research group of Computational Material Design at CIMEC
is conducting a colaborative project with the
International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering
(CIMNE) at Barcelona, Spain, and Fundación CIMNE Latinoamérica in the
context of the project
COMP-DES-MAT ( http://www.compdesmat.com/ ) founded by the European
Research Council (ERC). This research is based on three concepts:
(1) multiscale material analysis,
(2) shape and topological optimization of micro and macrostructures
(3) reduced order models with application to multiscale models.
The open position is related to computational aspects
covering these topics.


The responsibilities of the position include successful research
in the field of computational material design in terms of new
theoretical models, computational methods and algorithms.

The postdoc position is for one year extensible to two years. During
this period,
the candidate would be impeled to present his candidature to the
research career of Conicet (Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones
Científicas y Tecnológicas, Argentina http://www.conicet.gov.ar/ ).
Then, publication of scientific results should be a priority of the
postdoc research work.

In this context, cooperation with european research groups will be


Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree in Computational Solids Mechanics:
Expericence in research fields related to multiscale material analysis
or shape-topological optimization would be preferred, together with
good skills for in-house code programming.


It should be equivalent to a postdoctoral grant in CONICET.
However, this amount could be substantially improved in terms of
aptitude, skill and background of the candidate.


Deadline for application is the 31th of November 2014.
Applications should be submitted via email to:
ahuespe en intec.unl.edu.ar (Alfredo E. Huespe).
They must contain a statement of interest, a CV
and the course scores (average) in the degree as well as the
doctorate studies.
