An EU Funded Framework 7, Marie Curie Initial Training Network
The PARDEM project has brought together industrial and academic partners1 to develop the Discrete Element Method (DEM) of modelling and to predict the behaviour of granular solids such as pellets, grains, sand and biomass for industrial applications.
Are you a recent graduate in engineering, mathematics or physics, with experience in one or more of the following: numerical modelling, experimental techniques, particle technology, soil mechanics, DEM or molecular dynamics, fluid dynamics, statistical physics, CFD or FEM?
Looking to develop a career in cutting edge engineering with the opportunity to live and work internationally?
PARDEM will support thirteen doctoral training opportunities, across the programme, which are supported by Marie Curie Fellowships for Early Stage Researchers2. These fellowships provide a generous salary €34,500(Euros) paid at local equivalent rate (across the network subject to local social security and taxes), which is supplemented by allowances, including travel and a career development payment.
