Within the Marie Curie IAPP project "INTERACTIVE", the Simulation Division of LMS International has an open position as Experienced Researcher (duration 12 months) in vehicle mechatronics simulation.
The specific position involves participation in INTERACTIVE research tasks with a main focus on multi-domain concept modeling of the vehicle and on the modeling and simulation of vehicle mechatronics systems. Next to the technical research tasks, the researcher will disseminate his/her results to the scientific and industrial R&D community, and participate to the organization of project training activities, contributing to organizing her/his knowledge with the junior project researchers.
With the accepted candidate, an R&D program in line with the INTERACTIVE project objectives (see http://www.fp7interactive.eu) and background/interest of the candidate will be defined
A detailed profile for the position can be found at:
Project description: INTERACTIVE (“Innovative Concept Modelling Techniques for Multi-Attribute Optimization of Active Vehicles”) is an EC Marie Curie FP7 Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) project Nr. 285808, which runs from Nov. 1, 2011 till Oct. 31, 2015 (duration 4 years). The main aim of the project is to establish a transfer of knowledge in the relevant domains of vehicle concept modeling between complementary academic and industrial expertise of the partners: University of Calabria (Coordinator), KU Leuven, LMS International, GeG.
We invite and encourage you to apply, if you are a motivated candidate who fulfills the general candidate profile:
• Fluent in spoken and written English, in view of collaboration/presentation/reporting;
• Relevant engineering degree (mechanics, mathematics, computer science, control engineering, physics): MSc + preferably PhD (see further: ‘eligibility criteria’)
• Suitable candidates must be motivated to work in a result-oriented manner as part of an international R&D team, and be capable to work independently within the R&D group;
• Mobility and flexibility for research exchanges and training courses are required.
We especially seek for candidates with the ‘Specific Competence Profiles’:
1) expert in solver methodologies for multi-body simulation, and/or
2) expert in model-based control of mechatronics systems;
such a background will be a strong asset in the selection procedure.
The research activities will mainly be carried out at LMS International in Leuven, Belgium. This is envisaged to be combined with research visits to the partners of INTERACTIVE.
Eligibility criteria: An eligible Experienced Researcher (ER) candidate holds an MSc degree in Engineering & preferably also a PhD degree. He/she has at least 4 years of experience (or a PhD degree), but has no more than 10 years of research experience since gaining a university degree giving her/him access to doctoral studies. Among others, the following criteria apply for eligibility:
• the researcher may be of any nationality;
• at the time of appointment, the researcher may not have resided or carried out her/his main activity in Belgium (the country of the hosting partner) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to her/his appointment.
• women are especially encouraged to apply.
