We are looking for three PhD candidates in the field of permanent magnets, micromagnetics, and machine learning.
Climate change and global warming are the greatest threats to be faced by mankind. To counteract a fundamental change in the way we move, transport our goods, and generate and convert energy is required. This includes the development of novel and highly efficient motors, generators, transformers, and power electronic devices which all rely heavily on magnetic materials. However, currently available magnetic materials often do not meet the requirements, are not available in sufficient quantity, or impose heavy environmental burden, making it impossible to achieve the set climate goals. Thus, a radically new paradigm for the discovery and development of magnetic materials is urgently needed to act in time.
In your PhD you can either focus on the application of deep learning for material optimization, adaptive mesh finite element micromagnetics on GPUs, or building digital twins of permanent magnets depending on your interest. In your research you will collaborate with research teams located in Europe and Japan. You will gain high level expertise in computational physics and machine learning. You will have access to state-of-the-art hard- and software for massively parallel computation and data science.
The position is full time. The preferred starting date is January 2023. The duration is 3 years. Individual arrangements are possible based on your preferences.Contact Information
