A funded Ph.D. positionin Mechanical Engineering is available at Polytechnique in Montreal, Canada. The work combines experimentations and theoretical modelling. The goal of the project is to use a fluid instability to fabricate intricate patterns at the microscopic scale. By fabricating fibers this way, interesting mechanical properties can be obtained depending on the parameters of the instability.
See attached file for more details.
The Canadian government offers scholarships ranging between 7500 CDN$ and 10000 CDN$ for graduate students of central/south americas to conduct research internships in Canadian universities. The internships are to last for a duration of 4-6 months.
I am looking for graduate students enrolled in an engineering/scientific program in one of the eligible countries (see below) interested in coming to Polytechnique in Montreal in the next academic year 2012-2013. I have many projects combining fluid and solid mechanics as well as theory and experiments.
