The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Lamar University is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral/research associate position, which is available immediately. Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. degree with a strong record of journal publications. Research areas in one of the following areas are considered.
I am looking to recruit a new PhD student in the area of computational modeling of soft active materials. The position will begin as early as January 2014, or alternatively in September 2014. Requirements for this position including the ability to program in C++, knowledge of nonlinear finite element methods and continuum mechanics, and a good background in solid mechanics. If interested, please contact me at parkhs(at)bu.edu, with a copy of a CV and a description of your previous research experience.

We introduce a geometric framework to calculate the residual stress fields and deformations of nonlinear solids with inclusions and eigenstrains. Inclusions are regions in a body with different reference configurations from the body itself and can be described by distributed eigenstrains. Geometrically, the eigenstrains define a Riemannian 3-manifold in which the body is stress-free by construction. The problem of residual stress calculation is then reduced to finding a mapping from the Riemannian material manifold to the ambient Euclidean space. Using this construction, we find the residual stress fields of three model systems with spherical and cylindrical symmetries in both incompressible and compressible isotropic elastic solids.

Dear colleagues and friends,
On behalf of the editorial board, I would like to introduce our new Journal, Soft Robotics (SoRo) to the mechanics community. SoRo is an innovative peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the science and engineering of soft materials in mobile machines. The Journal breaks new ground as the first to answer the urgent need for research on robotic technology that can safely interact with living systems and function in complex natural or human-built environments.
