  • Post-Doc position in computational bone biomechanics

    Post-Doc assistant at TU-Wien (Vienna University of Technology)

    The Institute of Lightweight Design and Structural Biomechanics at the TU-Wien, Computational Biomechanics Group, is offering a full-time position (40 hours/week) for a post-doc university assistant for six years. The estimated starting date is Sept. 1, 2016.
    Entry level salary as a postdoctoral researcher is covered by level B1 of the Austrian Collective Agreement for university staff, and currently amounts to a minimum of EUR 3.590,70 EUR/month gross, 14 times/year.

    A PhD in the field of mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering (specialization in biomechanics) or a related discipline is a prerequisite. The successful candidate will work in the field of computational bone biomechanics, in particular, in the image-based finite element modelling and experimental validation of human bone models. Previous experience in bone biomechanics, image processing, finite element modelling, computer programming (FORTRAN/C++ and Python), cadaveric validation experiments, and multiscale modelling is highly desirable. Good command of English and German language is required.

    We offer:
    • A creative environment in one of the most livable cities in the world.
    • A young, highly motivated and international team of researchers.
    • An internationally established working group.
    • The possibility to grow into a scientific leadership position.
    • A well equipped work environment (soft- and hardware, biomechanics lab).
    • Continuing personal and professional education.
    • The possibility to present research results at leading international conferences.

    We expect:
    • A highly motivated, resilient person with very good communication skills, who likes to acts as a leader
    • Interest in solving scientific problems in an independent and goal-oriented manner
    • A continuous tracking of the current research together with the development of new concepts and methods as well as the transfer to pre-clinical applications
    • The willingness to contribute to interdisciplinary and international scientific projects
    • Supervision of Master and PhDs students
    • Writing grant proposals and acquiring third-party funds
    • Teaching is expected as part of the position within the areas of programming, numerics, finite element methods and related topics
    • Participation in organizational and administrative tasks of the institute and the faculty
    • Very good scientific communication and scientific writing skills in German and English

    For further information, please, contact Prof. Dr. Dieter Pahr ( ). The application should include a motivation letter, a scientific CV, diploma certificates, list of publications, and a copy of the PhD thesis, all in electronic form (ZIP archive containing PDFs).
    Period for application: from March 16, 2016 to April 13, 2016 (date of stamp).
