Funded junior researcher position in modelling carbon nanotubes modified stress-grading materials for rotating electrical machines
The LUT School of Energy Systems is looking for a
to develop a computational approach for modelling the behaviour of carbon nanotube modified materials on the stress-grading system of a rotating electrical machine.
Computational theory and simulation of materials plays a major role in many electrical engineering projects. We are looking for a young researcher and scientist who has a passion for cutting-edge research and is inspired to use his/her talent for theory development and physics/computational science to tackle the scientific and technological challenges of using new carbon nanotube materials for electrical rotating machinery development.
We expect you to have basic understanding of the electromagnetic fields and advanced materials used in electrical machines. This post will require advanced knowledge in materials and skills in using available electromagnetic field simulation software tools (e.g. Finite Element analysis software, Matlab, Python). It will also require advanced computing capabilities to be successful in developing new computation methods, tools and software.
We offer you a fascinating opportunity to contribute to the success of a high-science research project “CNTstress - Using Carbon Nanotube Materials to Improve the Stress Grading System of an Electrical Machine” in a stimulating and internationally recognised research environment. Your research work done for the project may lead to a PhD.
The potential applicant must have a higher university degree (M.Sc. or equivalent) in a relevant field (electrical engineering, or in computational physics, or similar), the ability to complete the doctoral studies within the normative duration of the studies for the degree and a postgraduate study and research plan. In addition, the junior researcher must obtain the postgraduate study right for the doctoral degree within one year of the beginning of the employment relationship.
The objective is to complete the doctoral degree within the target time of four years. The research work starts with a one-year term, which can be extended for another three years provided that the studies have progressed satisfactorily.

Lappeenranta University of Technology, LUT. LUT’s Trailblazer strategy is searching for answers to four key questions: Are we going to burn up everything? Is humanity condemned to suffer from the water it has polluted? Will waste be the grave of our future? Will we let Europe degenerate to the world’s back yard? No. We will lead the way with a trailblazer spirit. We have been ranked among the world’s top universities (Times Higher Education and QS rankings). We are compact by size, with intensely focused operations. Combining technology and business, we have served as an academic forerunner since 1969. Our international science community encompasses 6,500 students and experts.
The quality of living in Finland is one of the highest in the world. Security, nearness to nature and education are priorities of Finnish society – and are also highly recognized internationally. All this makes Finland a great country to live in.
Lappeenranta is a city of 72 400 inhabitants located in Southeast Finland, on the shore of the largest lake in Finland, Lake Saimaa. Lappeenranta is a very international city, owing to both the University with its 70 different nationalities and its geographical location near the Russian border.
Lappeenranta is only about 230 kilometers from Helsinki, the capital of Finland and from the third largest metropolis in Europe – St. Petersburg, Russia. Good public transportation connections make Lappeenranta easy to reach.
