• PhD position at the MATEIS laboratory (INSA-Lyon) and at the Fuel Study Department in CEA Cadarache, France

    Subject: "Multi-scale modeling of UO2 plasticity: on the role of irradiation defects"

    Description: The main goal of the Ph.D thesis is to develop a constitutive model based on dislocation interactions with irradiation defects. This model is needed to compute inelastic strains induced at high temperature and under irradiation. First, interaction between defects will be characterized using the LAMMPS molecular dynamics (MD) package. Then, atomisticallyinformed dislocation dynamics (DD) simulations will be performed to quantify strain hardening induced by irradiation defects using the NUMODIS code. Finally, the constitutive law and its parameters will be integrated within the finite-element (FEM) framework developed at the laboratory.

    Application: CV and application letters should be sent to bruno.michel@cea.fr and jonathan.amodeo@insa-lyon.fr.
