Dynamics of Complex Continua

Project description

Doctoral programme boosts research into complex dynamical phenomena on many-body systems

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie doctoral programme DOCC will offer 15 PhD positions for early-stage researchers who wish to obtain a doctoral degree in modelling and simulation of complex dynamical continuum systems in physics, atmospheric science, chemistry, material and engineering sciences, mathematics and computer science. Early-stage researchers will develop and apply novel methods for theoretical and numerical analysis of complex dynamical processes that take place on many-body and continuum systems of molecular, solid and soft matter, liquids, gases and plasmas. Knowledge transfer activities will include secondments to renowned regional and international academic and intersectoral organisations.

Objective

"DOCC is an interdisciplinary doctoral programme at the University of Innsbruck for 15 international early-stage researchers on modelling and simulation in physics, chemistry, atmospheric sciences, material and engineering sciences, mathematics and computer science.
DOCC provides structured advanced training in both research-relevant and professional skills, by building expertise in the intersectorally seminal fields of computational material, fluid and gas dynamics, which procure multiple topical technological, societal and medical applications relevant to climate, energy, safety, or nano and life sciences. All of these areas require a capability for predictive modelling and in-depth understanding of structural and dynamical properties of matter and materials, which often show a high level of dynamic complexity.
In our research focus on ""Dynamics Of Complex Continua"" (DOCC) we develop and apply novel methods for theoretical and numerical analysis in modelling and simulation of dynamical processes, such as stability, nonlinearity, transport and structure formation. In particular we consider meso- and macroscopic many-body and continuum systems of solids, soft matter, liquids, gases and plasmas, that are characterised by complex couplings between its constituents, its environment, or multi-scale dependence.
DOCC prepares Europe's next top modellers to link simulations and the real world within a multi-disciplinary environment, by providing beyond essential technical expertise also the training in key abilities to communicate and transfer methods and results. Targeted education in communication and knowledge-transfer skills is therefore implemented as a central supplementary pillar within the DOCC programme. The fellows will be provided with possibilities and encouragement to assume secondments to renowned international and regional academic and intersectoral partner organisations."
