Funded PhD position (Materials processing monitoring and control)

Applications are invited for fully funded PhD position (NOT MS) for  January 2018 0r (September 2018) at Distributed Parameter Systems Laboratory (DPSLab) in the Department of Chemical & Materials Engineering University of Alberta. This project is jointly sponsored by industrial partner and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

Requirements: To be considered student must demonstrate a knowledge of Finite Element Method. In particular, we require that you know to solve heat and linear elasticity equation on 2 dimensional square domain (we request that you write small computational problem (20 by 20-square grid elements) and solve it and in addition computer code should be attached). The project is on monitoring and control of material processing and these are required skills. 

  • Mechanical Engineering Department with the strong background in Finite Element Analysis (FEM), control and/or fluids, dynamical systems theory.
  • Chemical Engineering Department with strong knowledge of transport-phenomena, thermodynamics, computational methods and control.
  •  Electrical Engineering students with interest in control, optimization and computational methods.
  • Computer Science students interested in robotics and  computational methods, are encourage to apply.
  • The potential student candidates  from B.S. obtained from school of Mathematics and Applied/Engineering Physics are also encouraged to apply by first contacting me by e-mail.

We provide highly competitive compensation package.

Student applicants from major Chinese Universities are encourage to contact me early  since their immigration paperwork deadlines are earlier than for other students.

The applicants from Iran are encouraged to apply providing  that they have at least ~16.5-17.00/20 GPA for their undergraduate studies (not in MS program) or/and that they have already demonstrated research (publication) potential. If they are also SAMPAD students this is additional plus.

We are looking in demonstration of your excellence (papers, presentations, recommendations and/or your ability to reproduce some of our results).

We accept  students who are ready to develop certain skills and we do not hire for the projects but for the skills development.

If you are having MS degree from any of engineering departments you have higher chance to be considered. It is rarely that undergraduate students can match any of our requirements and jump on the board directly from the undergraduate program, unless they started preparing themselves in advanced to transition to graduate studies in our particular field.
