Position Description

FiBreMoD (Fibre break models for designing novel composite microstructures and applications) is an Innovative Training Network with 6 academic and 6 industrial partners in Belgium, UK, France, Germany, Israel and Netherlands. It is funded by the EC in the framework of Marie Curie Actions. FiBreMoD’s goal is to train 13 researchers to become multi-talented and interdisciplinary experts in understanding, characterising and predicting failure of fibre-reinforced polymer composites. Such researchers will be highly coveted by industries using lightweight materials (e.g. aeronautics, automotive, energy), which currently overdesign components due to a lack of reliable design methods for composites.

There are 13 positions available within the programme. For further details, please see full descriptions in
