Research Associate or Tenure-track Assistant Professor

BTV - September 17, 2020 - 0 comments


Location: Thu Dau Mot, Binh Duong, Vietnam (available shuttle service from Ho Chi Minh City downtown)

Number of vacancies: 2  assistant professors/postdocs, 1-2 PhDs

Job description:

The Modelling and Simulation in the Digital Age research program, hosted by Thu Dau Mot University,  currently has 14 researchers and collaborators, of which 60% are from abroad, and 80% are PhD holders. Our researches focus on the use of state-of-the-art modelling and simulation techniques and digital innovations (AI, Machine Learning, Uncertainty Quantification…) to solve complex engineering problems in smart manufacturing and healthcare applications.

The research team is looking for news staff to work on a very impactful project — digitalisation of advanced manufacturing processes. The (first) job holder is expected to develop advanced Finite Element models for the manufacturing processes such as additive manufacturing – 3D printing, stamping or welding with applications in automobile and healthcare. After being validated with the experimental results, the models will be used to create a high-reliable database. The (second) job holder will then develop advanced machine learning-based models to optimise the manufacturing process parameters. The job holders will perform high-level research activities in collaboration with the world-class research groups in Europe, UK and Taiwan.
