Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Applied Computational Mechanics and Topology Optimization
Full-time position of post-doctoral research fellow Sabancı University Integrated Manufacturing Research and Application Center (SU IMC) (fixed-term contract, 24 months). Job Description: Sabancı University invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship to support the TUBITAK-funded project Development and Experimental Verification of Numerical Method Based Topology Optimization Algorithms for Additive Manufacturing: Unlike conventional manufacturing processes, additive manufacturing provides the manufacturing of complex parts directly from computer-aided design models in almost net-shape form without any waste material in a short time without using any molds or tools. Therefore, it is very important to develop novel additive manufacturing methods to ensure manufacturing of these critical parts with less-weight while satisfying the needed requirements. This project assesses and develops novel topology-optimization algorithms and methods, which takes the residual stresses, caused plastic deformation and possible cracks into account, for additively manufacturing of critical and high-performance parts used in aerospace applications, and test the manufactured parts under the necessary environmental conditions. The post-doc fellow is expected to support members of the research team in developing topology optimization methods, analyzing data using in-house codes, and transform these analyses into research papers and academic publications. He/she will also be in charge as research manager, supporting the SU Faculty Members, Profs. Adnan Kefal and Bahattin Koc, in coordinating all research activities. The fellow will have also the opportunity to develop personal research leveraging the project’s data. Particular skills: Expertise in computational mechanics, modelling, topology optimization, finite element coding, peridynamics, additive manufacturing, capacity to work in English, proven publication record.
