PhD Student Position Available

Applications are invited for a PhD student position in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) starting from March 2010 or as soon as possible. Non-Destructive Testing is now the fastest growing industry for effective evaluation of materials, structures and pipelines. The PhD student will be involved in the research work for Regional Innovation Center (RIC) at Chonnam National University in South Korea, which is supported by Korean Government and various industries. The student will be using advanced NDT diagnostics tools and software for the evaluation of materials for petro-chemical plants. The work will be implemented by the close collaboration with industries.

Expectations:
The successful candidate is expected:
•To do experimental research on evaluation of materials and solid structures using ultrasonic and other NDT techniques
•To develop the analysis software with C++
•To carry out FEM simulations of ultrasonic wave propagation, and analysis of defects in materials and structures
•To post-process measured and predicted results in conjunction with a physically-based analysis
•To compare experimental measurements and predictions to extract relevant features
•To document results and findings

Requirements:
Candidates should have a Master/Diploma degree in Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Material Science, Physics or equivalent, required to pursue a PhD-study. This should ideally be complemented by the following skills:
• Excellent academic standing
• Knowledge in solid state physics and material science
• Experience with Finite Element Analysis (FEM) and numerical methods
• Experience with programming using C or C++
• Fluent in English (minimum requirements TOEFL-80IBT, 213CBT, 550PBT or IELTS-6.5)
• Willingness to work in an inter-cultural environment

The preference will be given to the candidates who obtained Master’s Degree in NDT. Please include a list of publications in NDT, if there is any.
