Anticipated Start Date: Jan 02, 2023

The Institute for Modelling and Simulation of Biomechanical Systems at the University of Stuttgart invites applications for a full-time position as a doctoral researcher/ PhD student or postdoctoral researcher (f/m/d), 100% TV-L E13, in the field of computational or experimental neuro-mechanics.

The Continuum Biomechanics and Mechanobiology research group (Prof. Oliver Röhrle) is one of the two chairs at the Institute for Modelling and Simulation of Biomechanical Systems. The focus of the group is the development and application of computational and experimental methods to investigate the neuromuscular system and related fields.
About the project:
To strengthen our research portfolio, we seek highly motivated researchers (PhD candidates or post-doctoral researchers) in skeletal muscle mechanics. The particular focus is on the multi-scale continuum-mechanical modelling of skeletal muscles to investigate muscle adaptation.

We are looking for candidates with a strong background in at least one of the following fields:
• continuum mechanics
• material theory
• multi-scale modelling
• biological systems modelling
• homogenization theory
• multi-physics modelling
• numerical methods
• computational neurophysiology
• electrographic or magnetographic measurements
• electromagnetic field theory
• biological systems modelling
• bio-signal processing

Good programming skills in Matlab, Python, etc. are expected. Further, the candidate is expected to have an excellent master’s degree (or equivalent) in studies with a focus in civil engineering, simulation sciences, biomedical engineering or applied mathematics. The ability to work in an interdisciplinary team, good communication skills and the willingness to take on teaching responsibilities are basic requirements.
