The Institute of Lightweight Design and Structural Biomechanics in
Vienna, Austria, seeks a highly motivated Ph.D. student in
computational biomechanics

A Ph.D. student with expertise in finite element methods is looked
for to investigate structure-function relationships of human bone
The research will focus on modelling lamellar bone from the nano- to
the meso level using analytical but mainly numerical methods such as
finite element methods in the field of micro-mechanics,
homogenization and periodic unit cell approaches.
The candidate will be involved in a multidisciplinary and
international research network, will have the opportunity to attend
scientific conferences and will be able to extend his/her education
in numerous aspects of tissue biomechanics.
The candidate must hold a Master’s Degree or an equivalent European
Engineering Diploma in mechanical engineering, civil engineering,
biomedical engineering or a related field.

Knowledge of the German language and European Union citizenship are
useful, but NOT mandatory.

The Vienna University of Technology aims to increase the proportion
of women in its scientific personnel and explicitly encourages
qualified women to apply for this position.
