This position is one of the 9 positions available within the ENABLE project, financed by the EU under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions in the H2020-MSCA-ITN Program. The European Training Network actively involves academics and industrial partners in training a new generation of young researchers for the future of manufacturing. By developing new solutions for forecasting and mastering processes relevant for all factories using metallic alloys, ENABLE proposes a complete rethink of the usual process simulation methods. Innovative multiscale (from microscopic to macroscopic scales), and multi-physics (strong thermomechanical and microstructural couplings) are addressed multi-level advanced (TRL 1 to 8) simulation. We will perform these simulation on several widely-used processes: Machining, Friction Stir Welding and Additive Manufacturing, to address the needs of our wide range of industrial partners.
Titanium, Nickel based and Aluminium alloys, the most popular metals in industry, have been chosen for this scientific investigation.
ENABLE will develop new tools that are better suited to production addressing such issues as reduced premature wear, increased service life, improved tools, etc. which will reduce production time and thereby production costs.
Training Programme for ESRs
A group of 9 Early Stage Researchers will be trained within world leading research teams. They will be introduced to novel approaches and applications while exploiting advances in fundamental research. To “enable” this vision, each trainee will join a team of closely integrated world-class experts in mechanical science, materials science and computer science/numerical methods.
Additional cross-disciplinary training (intellectual property, patenting, entrepreneurship, communication, open science, gender balance awareness, etc.) and a strong involvement on the part of the 12 Industries, SMEs, and research centres will provide the students with transferable skills and complementary competencies which will improve their research abilities and enhance their future employability.

Application and Selection Process
Based on the provided application documents of each candidate, the evaluation committee will evaluate qualitatively: the adaption of the previous training and career to the profile offered, the recommendation letters, the main results achieved (papers, proceedings, etc.), the statement of past and proposed future research and other merits; taking in account the alignment of these items to the topic offered. The selected candidates will be invited for an interview (on site or Skype). The selection committee is constituted by the supervisory team and the coordination team of ENABLE project.Lee mas
