CategoryJob in Industry
EmployerDCS Computing GmbH
LocationAustria, Linz
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
DCS Computing is a high-tech company based in Linz and Vienna / Austria. We
develop cutting-edge CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) software to model and
predict processing and flow of particles such as sand, sugar, crops, coal,
pharmaceutical powder, chemicals and many more. Particle processes such as
production, transport & storage represent a huge share of the world’s energy
consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

We distribute our software products and services on the global market. Some of
the world’s largest companies from a variety of industries as well as leading
research institutes and universities are using our software. We aid our
customers in sustainable growth, increasing throughput and efficiency while
energy and carbon footprints are decreased. We also closely collaborate with
leading academics worldwide.

We are looking for an Early Stage Researcher / PhD student (starting 05/2019)

You will be given the opportunity to work with DCS and a network of
international partners for 3 years towards a PhD degree in a Horizon 2020 Marie
Curie ITN. Location is Linz /Austria.

You bring:
•	Physics: you are holding a master’s degree in fluid mechanics, process
engineering, particle technology or similar and have interest in modelling
physics and flow processes in a Discrete Element Method (DEM) context and
ideally also in a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) context
•	Software development: you have skills or interest in using C++, git, and MPI
•	Customer focus/communication: you communicate lean and efficiently and work
•	Focus: you have a goal-oriented and well-organized personality
•	Enthusiasm: you bring a broad range of interests, and the capability to learn
We offer:
•	Purpose: you will develop cutting-edge DEM and CFD-DEM simulation models for
high temperature processes. Therefore, you are laying the ground for process
optimization, reduction of energy consumption and emissions.
•	Team: you will join a small and flexible, young and motivated team at DCS as
well as being embedded into in an international project team with high-level
academics and industrialists, enrolled at Graz University of Technology for PhD
and enjoy a number of international exchange visits (secondments) during the
•	Impact and internationality: you will work with Blue Chip companies from all
around the globe. Market leaders in all major industries (chemical, pharma,
process, minerals & mining, plastics, agricultural machinery and many others)
are among our customers
•	Salary: you will receive fixed amount salary of roughly €2800 gross (14 times
a year) .

For eligibility and general information on international mobility, please see
the remarks below. Please send your 1 page CV and 1 page motivation letter – all
other formats will be discarded - to: Dr. Christoph Kloss, Dr. Christoph Goniva, We look forward to hearing from you!

All researchers recruited in an ITN must be Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) and
undertake transnational mobility (see below). 
Researchers can be of any nationality. They are required to undertake physical,
transnational mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up
their appointment. Nationality is therefore not a criterion. Rather the location
of the researcher's residence or main activity during the 3 years prior to their
recruitment is determining. Example: Austrian nationals can be eligible for
recruitment if they have resided or carried out their main activity outside of
Austria for more than 24 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their

In ETN, each recruited researcher can be seconded to other beneficiaries and/or
to partner organisations for a duration of up to 30% of his/her recruitment
period. Secondments of the researcher to other beneficiaries and partner
organisations are encouraged, but should be relevant, feasible, beneficial for
the researchers and in line with the project objectives. Normal practice during
secondments is for the recruited researchers to keep their contract with the
sending institution, which also pays their travel and subsistence expenses (e.g.
accommodation, visa, residency card) from the institutional unit costs. During
their secondment, researchers receive supervision and training at the premises
of the receiving beneficiary or partner organisation. Secondments should be
differentiated from short visits, i.e. of a few days. Secondments in ITN of six
months or less which require mobility from the place of residence must be
financed using the Research, Training and Networking costs in order to prevent
an unreasonable financial burden for the early-stage researchers. This includes
the travel and accommodation costs.
