15 PhD positions in 3D imaging for materials engineering

he European training network MUMMERING seeks 15 PhD candidates for enrolment in an interdisciplinary training program on 3D imaging techniques and their application in materials science and engineering.  MUMMERING, standing for “MUltiscale, Multimodal and Multidimensional imaging for EngineeRING”, is a European Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovation Training Network funded by HORIZON 2020.

If you are eager to work with new 3D imaging technologies, are in your first four years of your research career, and have not yet been awarded a doctoral degree, this is the perfect opportunity for you.

As a PhD student in the MUMMERING network, you will:

  • Work with key challenges that 3D imaging need to overcome for being a versatile scientific and industrial tool: handling of data volume (TB-scale), efficient data reduction, and matching 3D/4D data with appropriate modelling.
  • Join a multi-disciplinary network comprised of 13 high-profiled European academic institutions and 14 industrial enterprises all actively involved in 3D imaging. The team holds excellent expertise on the development of 3D imaging technologies and the industrial application of such technologies. 
  • Be enrolled in a comprehensive educational program comprised of summer schools, workshops, career plans, and secondments. Thanks to the secondments (3-10 months), you will experience to work both in academic and industrial research environments.  
  • Strengthen your international profile by living and working in a new country. All PhD students in the MUMMERING network have to undertake physical transnational mobility in line with rules for European Training Networks, i.e. you have to move from one country to another when taking your new position.

Below is a list of the 15 PhD projects. Select the project(s) you are most interested in and follow the link. The link guides you to the host institution’s advertisement or a contact person who holds information on how to apply for the position.

Please note the deadlines for submitting your application in the 15 PhD projects. We will evaluate the applications on a running basis.  We therefore advise you to submit your application as soon as possible.

We expect that you start between 1 January and 1 May 2018.
