A short note to let you know that I have now three Ph.D. positions available to fill between now and March 2008 (sonner=better) (Students from the EU only -- fully funded).
You can contact me for more information:
stephane . bordas @ gmail . com
The topics revolve around fracture mechanics and the extended finite element method and meshfree methods with applications to composite materials (including experiments) solder joint reliability (funded by Bosch) and fault propagation in reservoirs (funded by Schlumberger and EPSRC).
They are based in the United Kingdon, Glasgow (Scotland, which is a great place to live).
The students will be integrated in a very dynamic team of young assistant/associate/full professors, including much staff with a lot of experience.
A dozen Ph.D. students will be in the group at the start time + postdocs of high quality.
Glasgow University was voted University of the year in Scotland by the Sunday Times (2007).
The third one will come soon, but just write me for details.
Best, from Glasgow,
