  • PhD position in computational biomechanics @ Vienna University ofTechnology

    Dear All,

    As a partner of a European Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN)
    devoted to spinal disease and trauma, the Institute of Lightweight
    Design and Structural Biomechanics in Vienna, Austria, seeks a highly
    motivated Ph.D. student with expertise in computational biomechanics
    and strong organizational skills to lead research projects including
    tasks in image processing, design, biomechanical testing, multi-body
    simulations and finite element analysis.

    The global aim of these projects consists in developing new strategies
    to simulate vertebral failure in clinical circumstances such as
    osteoporosis, metastatic defects, fixation devices or cement
    augmentation. The candidates will be involved in a challenging
    multidisciplinary research network of universities, hospitals and
    industries, will extend their education in specific workshops on
    spinal disease and trauma and will attend international scientific

    Following the eligibility rules of ITNs, the candidates must have
    completed their Masterís or equivalent Degree within the past 4 years
    and must neither be Austrian nationals nor having resided more than 12
    months in Austria in the past 3 years. The candidates must hold a
    Masterís Degree or an equivalent European Engineering Diploma in
    mechanical engineering or a closely related field. EU citizenship,
    knowledge of the German language and previous publications in peer-
    reviewed journals 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.

    Eligible candidates should send their application, including a letter
    of motivation, a complete CV and a copy of their Masterís thesis
    electronically as soon as possible to
