PhD Student (m/f) for numerical simulations on the magnetic field assisted electrodeposition of nano-structured metal layers

The position will be available from 01 March 2018. The employment contract is limited to three years. The regular weekly working time will be 29,25 hours. The salary is based on the collective agreement TVöD-Bund.
The place of work is Dresden-Rossendorf. This position is part of a joint German-Polish DFG-NCN research project and offers interplay with corresponding experimental work and cooperation with the partner institutions TU Dresden, IFW Dresden and AGH University of Applied Sciences, Krakow. A corresponding call of the experimental position at TU Dresden exists. A graduation at the Technische Universität Dresden is possible.


Distinct university graduation in engineering or natural science, preferably in fluid mechanics, physics, mathematics, chemistry, process engineering or material science

Desirable: experience in numerical simulations and programming skills as well as knowledge of mathematical modelling of multi-physics problems strong interest in interdisciplinary scientific work good proficiency in the English language


Development of numerical models for the electrodeposition of metals and alloys in external magnetic fields simulations of the influence of Lorentz- and magnetic gradient force on the deposition at ferromagnetic cones from the mm down to the nano-meter scale interplay with experimental work performed at partners to validate the results and to jointly formulate empirical models for optimizing the nano-structuring effect
