Description du poste:
Nano-and micro-electromechanical systems (NEMS & MEMS) are used in many applications in everyday life, such as inertial sensors in smartphones or cars. In addition to their technological impact, they raise many scientific challenges as their complex dynamics is governed by the fundamental concepts of nonlinear oscillations. The ability to control the nonlinear phenomena provides the key to increased device performance and innovative sensor concepts.
As a PhD student you will
* develop a comprehensive understanding of the theoretical concepts and tools exploited for NEMS & MEMS design including e.g. elasticity theory, finite element modelling, and nonlinear dynamics.
* develop new simulation methods on your own, in particular focusing on state of the art optimization workflows.
* verify your theoretical results in close collaboration with experiments and discuss your findings with experts from both corporate research and the development departments.
* publish the results in patent applications and/or high impact journals within your research field.
* Education: You have a master/diploma degree in physics, mathematics, engineering or related fields with excellent grades.
* Personality: Self-motivated, goal oriented, and open-minded team player with a strong affinity towards theoretical concepts.
* Experience and Knowledge:
We expect that
* you have solved problems during your academic studies or master/diploma thesis using theoretical and/or numerical approaches.
* you understand the basic concepts of a physical theory from the axiomatic framework over to the relevant physical approximations up to the numerical solution procedure.
* you are able to work with and/or learn new software tools and develop the required skills on your own.
* Languages: Fluent in English and good in German beneficial (written and spoken)
Please submit all relevant documents (incl. curriculum vitae and university certificates).
