AbstractFor industrial materials, the control of component lifetime requires deterministic approaches that can be made reliable a posteriori based on a dispersion of experimentally observed lifetime. The approach is sequential, including an analysis of the damage mechanisms leading to failure, the proposal of a mechanical criterion taking into account this observation and the generalization of this criterion from heavy and costly test bases. The cost is twofold: construction of the database and important safety margins linked to the non-control of uncertainties.
Profilethe candidate must hold a national master's degree or another degree conferring the grade of master (engineering degree, equivalent foreign degree...), at the end of a training course establishing his/her aptitude for research.

The application file must include
- a letter of motivation to pursue a doctoral program on the targeted thesis topic and including the candidate's professional project
- a detailed curriculum vitae mentioning the candidate's studies, research internships, diplomas with dates obtained, professional experience, and planned research areas
- a transcript of grades from previous studies (engineering and/or master)
- one or more letters of recommendation...
- a certificate of English level.
- for non-French speaking students, a level A2/B1 in French (European reference system) is recommended for entry into the doctoral program
- for students who do not hold a national research master's degree, all documents attesting to the student's qualifications in terms of training through research (attestations of research internships with a summary of the thesis, recommendations, publications, etc.)
- a copy of identity card or passport

The documents in pdf format must be sent before May 05, 2021 to
