EUTOPIA opportunity for junior researchers: DurAMat call is now open!

DurAMat is the game-changer that will engender long-lasting performance properties of Additive Manufactured products used in severe exposure environments. DurAMat research will i) develop AM components from different alloy families sustainably, ii) enable AM as preferred repair method for defunct metallic products and iii) enable AM for metal functionalisation. DurAMat’s research combines experimental research with multiscale modelling and machine learning (ML) methods.

DurAMat fills important knowledge gaps and will innovate AM metals and coatings, technologies, services, and several computational models (multiscale and Machine Learning). DurAMat is coordinated at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel VUB by Prof. Iris De Graeve, Prof. Herman Terryn, Dr. Reynier Revilla and Dr. Fatma Demir.

The consortium consists of 6 Universities, 2 Research Centres and 5 Industrial Companies from 6 European Countries. It will train 11 doctoral candidates in a holistic approach, encompassing cross-disciplinary scientific knowledge transfer, teaching activities, and cultivating interpersonal and transferable skills.

We are looking for students with a Master’s degree in Engineering Sciences, Materials, Metallurgy, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, or Computational science.

The research projects will start April 2024 in a large international network and with unique mobility in Europe. We encourage EU students that wish to venture into other European opportunities and non-EU students, of all nationalities, that wish to explore Europe, to apply.

There are 11 PhD positions open, so find out more about the individual projects and the recruitment program on DurAMat website.

VUB is coordinating the project, NOVA, UG, UW, TUD are project partners, students from all EUTOPIA partners and beyond can apply.
