The Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology (IVT) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) announces one vacant PhD position in the field of Fracture of Ni-alloys.
We successfully synthesized a family of alginate/polyacrylamide hydrogels using various multivalent cations. These hydrogels exhibit exceptional mechanical properties. In particular, we found that the hydrogels cross-linked by trivalent cations are much stronger than those cross-linked by divalent cations. We demonstrate stretchability and toughness of the hydrogels by inﬂating a hydrogel sheet
The Department of Mechanical Engineering seeks an outstanding individual for a tenure-track faculty position in Mechanics of Solids and Structures. The appointment is expected to be at the assistant professor level; in an exceptional case, a senior faculty appointment may be possible. Faculty duties include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, development of an independent, internationally-recognized research program, and supervision of student research. Applicants should send a curriculum vita, a research statement, a teaching statement, and copies of not more than three publications (combined into a single PDF file). They should also arrange for four individuals to submit letters of recommendation on their behalf.
