The project aims to develop numerical methods that reconstruct nonlinear features of high-degree-of-freedom mechanical systems from experimentally measured vibration data. The mathematical basis for this effort is the recent theory of spectral submanifolds developed within the Chair of Nonlinear Dynamics at ETH Zurich (see for more information).

The deliverable is a numerical package that identifies a low-dimensional model from measured continuum vibrations and constructs nonlinear amplitude- and frequency response curves for the most important mechanical degrees of freedom. The numerical procedure will first need to be validated on data generated by finite-element models, then on experimental data.

The ideal candidate has a a PhD in engineering, applied mathematics, computer science or physics; research interest and background in mechanics and nonlinear dynamics; demonstrated experience with numerical methods (finite-element methods, in particular) and data analysis; interest in a research career and in interdisciplinary project collaboration and working knowledge of English. The contract duration is 1 year, renewable upon satisfactory progress.

For further information about the position please contact Prof. Haller by email (no applications).

We look forward to receiving your online application including a CV, PDF copies of 2 relevant publications, and the names of three references under the link

Applications via email will not be considered.

Please reference in your cover letter when
applying for or inquiring about this job announcement.
