Post-doctoral Position in Biomechanics at University of Texas

The Research Center for Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Materials at the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for an open position as Post-doctoral Fellow. The specific project involves collaboration with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and requires the Fellow to work at both institutions. The work involves experimental characterization of tissues and surgical remodeling, and development of computational modeling of surgical reconstruction.

Special Volume of the International Journal of Fracture

As part of the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the International Journal of Fracture, two special volumes were published in 2015. All articles of the 2nd 50th anniversary issue published in Nov/Dec 2015 are now freely accessible at the journal site until the 7th of April. These articles (and the ones published in the 1st 50th anniversary issue published in Jan/Feb 2015) provide reviews and perspectives on many aspects of fracture. You are welcome to browse thorough these articles and provide feedback on this blog!

Post-doctoral position at the University of Texas at Austin

The
Center for Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Materials has immediate openings
for two post-doctoral positions, dealing with (i) laboratory experiments on hydraulic
fracture and (ii) ductile failure in metals. The primary focus in both
investigations is on performing laboratory experiments that are then followed
by appropriate analyses. Candidates with a strong background in solid mechanics
and experience in experimental solid mechanics are encouraged to contact Professor

Post-doctoral position at the University of Texas

The Research Center for Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Materials at the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for an open position as Post-doctoral Fellow. The specific project involves the characterization of the constitutive and failure behavior of structural materials (aluminum alloys, steels, titanium alloys, metal-matrix composites, polymers and other selected materials) under quasi-static and dynamic conditions.

Journal Club Forum for October 15th: Experimental Solid Mechanics at the Nanoscale

Browsing through past themes, I realize that this is the third time the topic of experimental mechanics at the nanoscale has been highlighted in the jClub forum. There are many problems that require experimental research at the nanoscale that we can do this a few more times without being repetitive. I would like to focus this discussion on the fundamental issue of friction.
