The project is focused on 3D printing of porous metals with excellent specific mechanical properties whose morphology is optimized by machine learning-based design. The work, at the interface between 3D printing and data science, is funded by a m. ERA-NET project (PORMETALOMICS). The project consortium includes two partners, Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) and the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, which which a close interaction is planned.

The main activities will revolve around characterization of different feedstock powders, selective laser melting, microstructure characterization at several length scales, and macro and micromechanical property testing. Experience can be gained on all levels of materials´ design for 3D printing. It is expected that this work will give rise to several publications in peer-reviewed international journals and it will give the candidates the opportunity to present their work at major international conferences.

The candidate will acquire hands-on experience with state-of-the-art materials processing and characterization methods (e.g. selective laser melting, electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, powder rheology, sample preparation and mechanical testing). The researcher will gain expertise in several fields of high employability (e.g. additive manufacturing, advanced materials for sustainable transport) and experience in both fundamental and applied research in materials and metallurgy, opening perspectives in both academia and industry.

Additionally, the researcher will join regular training activities on transferable skills organised by IMDEA in project management, leadership, funding search, grant writing, intellectual property and science communication to specialised and non-specialised audiences.

Deadline for submission of applications

Interested candidates should submit their Curriculum Vitae (in English), a brief cover letter addressing their motivation and scientific interests, as well as their academic certificate, including grades and dates, issued by the corresponding academic institution.



  • Full proficiency in English, oral and written, is mandatory. Knowledge of Spanish is not required (complimentary classes offered weekly at IMDEA Materials).
  • The candidates should be highly motivated to do research and to join a dynamic consortium aiming to make a contribution towards the EU Green Deal. They should have a PhD in Materials Science, Metallurgy, Mechanical Engineering, or a related discipline, with excellent academic credentials.
  • Candidates with prior knowledge or experience in processing and characterization of metallic materials are strongly encouraged to apply.



  • Full-time contract including social security coverage.
  • Start date: September 2022
