Your work environment
The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies.
You will be part of the LIST Materials Research and Technology department
Through its research into advanced materials and processes, the department, with over 190 researchers and engineers, contributes to the emergence of enabling technologies that underpin the innovation processes of local and international industry. The department’s activities hinge on four thematic pillars supported by dedicated platform specialists as below:
The Structural Composites Unit is strategically positioned in the framework of National Composites Centre - Luxembourg initiative (NCCL) to address the development of high-performance and multifunctional polymer-based composites. The research team drives the next generation of composites engineering to bring about functional and ultra-lightweight materials and structures which are architected at several scales of observation up from their basic constituents, and covering interfaces and interphases at all levels. This work aims at advancing knowledge in experimental, and multi-scale and multifield modelling and design of multifunctional and ultra-lightweight and high-performance composites which are reliable and sustainable. Experimental and computational methodologies and tools are developed to cover the full composites development chain, from the engineering of materials and processes, through structural design optimisation, to manufacturing, and enable multi-objective performance optimization. Full-scale composite technology demonstrators are brought to the industry, hence making them available for Luxembourg, Grande Region and European societies.
The Structural Composites Unit hosts a FNR PEARL Chair with the project ‘Multiscale data-driven virtual design for manufacturing of composite materials: Driving the next generation of ultra-lightweight additively manufactured fibre-reinforced polymers (DRIVECOMP).
In the framework of the DRIVECOMP project, you will be researching on the topic of design and manufacturing of tailored laminated composite structures.
The research entails:
You will be supported by the project team members to bring about the objectives of the PhD thesis, and will actively collaborate to reach the overall goals of the DRIVECOMP project.
