At the TU Delft, we are using state-of-the-art machine learning methods to create new materials with practical relevance. These methods help uncover new designs and properties. This research aims at exploring recent A.I. methods and potentially develop new ones that can assist our research group in discovering new materials and structures.
As a PhD researcher you will be working on: (1) finite element simulations for a problem of interest; and (2) new machine learning methods. We encourage originality and value independent thinking.
Applicants should be interested in working with machine learning algorithms and have a strong interest in the development of new methods. The ideal candidate has:
- strong background in engineering, physics or mathematics
- demonstrated interest in computational analysis
- willingness to work as a team
It is considered a plus if the candidate has simulation experience (Finite Element Method, Density Functional Theory, or Molecular Dynamics) and/or experience with one or more machine learning or optimization techniques (machine/deep learning, genetic optimization, Bayesian optimization, etc.)
We are looking for a candidate with high intellectual ability and creativity. We favor diversity and encourage every individual who resonates with the job description to apply for this position.
TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.
