PhD Positions Available (up to 2) on Fatigue Resistance of Bone

Bones not only support and protect the various organs of our body but provide structure and enable mobility making them the most important structural materials in the human body. While aging, diet and health are known to significantly affect the structural integrity and fracture resistance of bone, fatigue, a significantly more important loading condition, is rarely studied.

3-Year Postdoctoral Fellow: Green Chemistry/Materials Chemistry

The required postdoctoral fellow will play a leading role in performing research leading to high-impact publications in the broad field of materials chemistry/crystal engineering. The postdoctoral fellow is expected to possess strong experimental research skills and ideally some computational materials modelling experience. The right candidate will spend most of their time in the laboratory where he/she will utilize their strong expertise in synthesis (organic or inorganic compounds) and materials chemistry/characterization in order to develop and validate a novel biosurfactant catalyzed mechanochemical remediation method for the green synthetic functionalization and conversion of persistent organic pollutants. In addition to performing research leading to high-impact publications in peer-reviewed materials chemistry journals, the postdoctoral fellow will work as part of a multidisciplinary team of molecular biologists, bioinformatics experts, chemists and chemical engineers in order to facilitate the deliverables of this exciting project.

Barenblatt died, age 90

Grigory Isaakovich Barenblatt passed away on 21 June 2018 in Moscow.  He pioneered the cohesive-zone model of fracture, and made lasting contributions to the mechanics of solids and fluids.  We are deeply sorry for the passing of a giant.
