  • Postdoc in Experimental (Bio)-Mechanics in Vienna

    The Institute of Lightweight Design and Structural Biomechanics of the
    Vienna University of Technology, Austria, seeks a Postdoc in
    Experimental (Bio)Mechanics for a period of two years.

    The selected candidate will be involved in research and teaching in
    the fields of biomechanics and lightweight design. He/she will design
    novel experiments in a state-of-the-art laboratory in micro- and
    nanomechanics to test original scientific hypotheses. He/she will gain
    teaching experience at the undergraduate or graduate level and advise
    PhD students in his/her domain of expertise. He/she will contribute to
    the experimental validation of computational models developed at the
    institute and lead contract research projects. The candidate must hold
    a Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering, engineering physics,
    material science, or a closely related field. We are looking for a
    highly motivated individual with strong competences in metrology and
    excellent organizational skills with an established interest in
    interdisciplinary and team-oriented research.

    Knowledge of the German language and European Union citizenship are
    advantageous, 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.

    Applications, including a letter of motivation and complete CV should
    be sent before December 23rd 2009 to "Personalabteilung für das
    wissenschaftliche Personal", Technische Universität Wien (TU Wien)
