Cambridge University: Research Assistant/Associate in the mechanics of failure of adhesive joints

A position exists, for a Research Assistant/Research Associate in the Department of Engineering, to work on the mechanics of failure of adhesive joints. The post holder will be located in Central Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, UK.

Post Doc in Mechanics of Batteries - Cambridge

Lithium ion batteries are prone to degradation by a range of mechanisms including dendritic formation and swell-induced fatigue and micro-cracking. The topology of the battery plays a role over a number of length scales, from macro scale geometry of battery to the microstructural scale of the mixing of the negative electrode in the electrolyte. Topology has a major effect both on performance and on the failure mechanisms.

Post Doc in Mechanics of Polymer Foaming

Polymers are commonly foamed in the solid phase by the expansion of a dissolved gas such as CO2.  The foaming process is sensitive to the constitutive properties of the polymer, and the final porosity is dictated by bursting of the cell walls.  There is a need to model the solid foaming process for a range of polymers in order to determine the sensitivity of foaming to the properties of the polymer and to the process variables (such as thermal history and CO2 content). The foam expansion response is sensitive to the constitutive properties of the polymer.

PhD studentship in "Statistical mechanics of single cells" at the Cambridge University Engineering Department

Eukaryotic cells exhibit considerable variability in their responses in terms of observables such as cell shape, cell area, cytoskeletal protein arrangements etc. This variability/fluctuation is inherent to the bio-chemical processes occurring within cells: in-fact cells use these fluctuations to detect and respond to their environment.
