Sweden is a favourite destination for academics. Here's a breakdown of the most common Swedish academic jobs and their salaries.
Third-cycle subject: Engineering Materials Science
We are looking for a doctoral student, who will be working at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. In this department, the research is focused on engineering materials and the linkage between process-structure-properties, which is also reflected in the organization of the department in three research units: Process, Structure and Properties. The doctoral student will join the Unit of Structures.
The doctoral studies will be on materials design of cemented carbides within the Hero-m 2i (Hierarchical engineering of industrials materials to innovation) competence center, www.mse.kth.se/forskning/research-center/hero-m-2
Typically cemented carbides consist of hard carbide phases, mainly WC, embedded in a ductile binder phase, usually Co, but since Co can cause serious health problems and the supply is limited there is a need to substitute it. The aim of this project is to use Integrated Computational Materials Engineering, ICME, to develop modelling tools aimed at the replacement of Co. Although the main emphasis is on new theoretical predictive tools regarding the microstructure evolution during process and in service, and the related materials properties, experimental verification and measurements play an essential role.
