Post-Doc and trainee position at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Petten, Netherlands
The JRC is offering a post-doc and a trainee position:
-Post-Doc (24 months): "Exploratory Research Project Novel Micromechanical Testing Methods for the Characterization of Nuclear Materials/μMech."
The main activity concerns the development of novel micromechanical tests based on the in-situ deformation of metallic membranes produced by microfabrication techniques. The aim of the project is to develop a new methodology, including sample preparation, measurement procedures and data treatment and analysis, for mechanical testing of structural materials for nuclear applications.
The candidate will be in charge of performing micromechanical testing ex-situ (using a nanoindentation set-up) and in-situ (inside a SEM). As well, he/she will be responsible for post-test examinations by electron microscopy, analysing the data and reporting.

-Trainee (5 months): "Acquisition and analysis of nanoindentation results."
Nanoindentation is a mechanical testing technique that allows extracting local information of the mechanical properties of materials, such as hardness and elastic modulus. The JRC is involved in several international projects addressed to develop new methodologies for nanoindentation testing in quasi-static and dynamic modes, at room and at high temperatures. In this context, we are looking for a trainee to assist in the operation of nanoindentation equipment to set-up experiments, program and launch data acquisition matrices. The candidate will also be requested to perform post-processing of data, prepare data analysis reports and store the data in a materials database. A significant amount of work will be carried out in the laboratory followed by statistical analysis.The trainee could be an undergraduate/master student or a PhD student who would like to do a stay.
