PhD Position in Computational Wear Modeling at the ETH Zurich

In the context of LifeLongJoints, applicants are invited for a PhD studentship at the Institute for Biomechanics of the ETH Zurich.

Whole-body, multi-body dynamic biomechanical simulations will be coupled to joint-scale finite element analyses to predict prosthesis wear rates across a broad range of patient parameters and simulated activities of daily living. Representative surface wear rates will be governed by computational wear and corrosion models developed by our collaborators. The application of this coupled simulation method for prosthesis design optimisation will be explored.
