The Department of Structural Engineering at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Biomechanics for two and a half year (2.5) available at the research group Biomechanics.

About the position:
  • The position is associated with the Frinatek project VirtuOSA: virtual surgery in the upper airways – new solutions to obstructive sleep apnea treatment.
  • The project is funded by the Research Council of Norway. The project is a joint effort between solid mechanics (one Postdoctoral Fellow, this position), fluid mechanics (one PhD candidate), and medicine (one Postdoctoral Fellow, ear nose throat surgery).
  • A postdoctoral research fellowship is a qualification position in which the main objective is qualification for work in academic positions.


  • Applicant must have completed a Norwegian doctoral degree in solid mechanics, structural mechanics, computational mechanics or a corresponding foreign doctoral degree recognized as equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree is required.
  • Applicant should be fluent in English (spoken and written). Applicants from non-English speaking countries outside Europe must document English skills (TOEFL, IELTS, CAE or CPE).
  • Applicant with background in biomechanics, structural mechanics, experimental mechanics, computational mechanics or similar would have an advantage.
  • A strong background in nonlinear finite element methods.


Apply online and the application must include:

  • CV, certificates and diplomas
  • Research plan or project proposal
  • Academic works – published or unpublished – that you would like to be considered in the assessment (up to 3 works)
  • Name and address of three referees
