Please check out the following link (click here) on the NTNU website for more details about this PhD position.

For further information about the position, please contact: Professor Afrooz Barnoush, (afrooz.barnoush@ntnu.no), a prominent expert in the field of degradation of materials mechanical properties under simultaneous effect of mechanical loading and environments like hydrogen embrittlement or stress corrosion cracking.

Postdoctor position description (short version):

Advanced high-performance materials are the enabling building blocks for the progress in all aspects of the technology. One important property of advanced materials which is extremely hard to study is their resistance to environmentally assisted cracking (EAC) in harsh conditions such as one existing in the marine environment. This is because mainly EAC resulted from the simultaneous interaction of three different domains of materials, environment, and mechanical loading.
in the past five years, many high-strength alloys, particularly precipitation-hardening nickel alloys and high strength steels, have been found prone to EAC, even in environments deemed a priori benign. In this project, we are intended to further consolidate our understanding of the EAC towards the development of a predictive multiscale model.
  • Qualifications:
The applicants must hold a PhD degree within materials science engineering or equivalent. Previous knowledge and experience in Nanomechanical testing with nanoindentation system, in situ nanomechanical testing in scanning electron microscope, focused ion beam microscopy as well as atomistic simulation with embedded atom potentials will be considered an advantage.
  • Conditions:

Postdoctoral candidates are remunerated in code 1352, and are normally remunerated at gross from NOK 485 700 per annum before tax. There will be a 2% deduction to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund from gross wage.

The appointment of the Postdoctoral fellows will be made according to Norwegian guidelines for universities and university colleges and to the general regulations regarding university employees.

The Postdoctoral fellowship is awarded for 2 years.

The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement

https://milosdjukichydrogen.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/network21.jpg

The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of hydrogen degradation of engineering materials and their co-evolution with science, materials science, industry and society, and also by addressing the fragmentation of European and Worldwide research in this area.

The Network of Excellence in Hydrogen Embrittlement is structured so that it consists of the following branches:

  1. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on LinkedIn
  2. Hydrogen Embrittlement  – Understanding and research framework Project
    on ResearchGate
  3. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on Mendeley
  4. Hydrogen Embrittlement and Materials Science Blog on WordPress
  5. Research Topic titled “Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanisms” (closed now) in collaboration with Frontiers in Materials Journal within Corrosion Research section
  6. Damage and Fracture Mechanism Group on LinkedIn
