Postdoc / experienced scientist Position in Structural Dynamics and Vibration Noise reduction in Railway systems

Post by bartvand on Fri Apr 13 2018, 10:25

The LMAF laboratory of EPFL is looking for one Postdoc or experienced scientist in the field of structural dynamics and vibration to carry out combined experimental and modeling research in the context of a multidisciplinary project aiming at the noise reduction of railway transportation systems. The project is for at least 1.5 years (or more) and is to be conducted in close partnership with other laboratories at EPFL and EMPA active in the fields of polymers, material science, acoustics and noise mitigation.  The starting date is ideally 1.5.2018.

We are looking for candidates with a strong background in structural dynamics and vibrations, finite element modeling, viscoelastic material characterization and constitutive modeling, experimental modal analysis and vibration testing. Previous experience in the design of structure level vibration testing setups or acoustics would be an advantage.  

LMAF provides a stimulating, collaborative and dynamic research environment with state-of-the-art facilities at EPFL. Personal initiative, independent problem solving and research capacity related to the project goals will be highly valued.

The working language is English but knowledge of French or German would be an advantage.

Candidates should either have finished a PhD degree in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, material science (or related fields) or have a Master degree in those fields with a significant previous experience. Candidates should send their CV, a research statement outlining their expertise and interests, any supplemental information, and a list of at least three references with full contact information to the LMAF:
