Seeking post-doctoral candidate on the modelling of shot peening

Dear Colleagues

I am currently looking for a post-doctoral candidate to work with me on the modelling of the shot peening process. Our objective is to develop a coupled discrete element – finite element scheme to model both the shots interactions withing the stream as well as predicting the residual stresses and roughness.

This is a two-year position in a project involving 4 major aerospace companies, 3 universities, 6 PhD students dans 3 PDF. The position is open right now but could be filled at a later time if an excellent candidate is found.

Please forward this message to your students and colleagues.

The interested applicants should send a CV and a list of publications directly to me by email.
