Successful candidates should have a strong background in at least one of the following areas: 
  • Structural or solid mechanics, 
  • Finite element method, 
  • Numerical linear algebra, 
  • Structural optimization, 
  • Mathematical optimization. 
In addition, we require code development skills, preferably in MATLAB, Python, Julia, C++, or a related programming language. 

Interested candidates are invited to submit their applications at:
