REMINDER: (Due Dec 5th) Call for Nominations for the Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty

It is my pleasure to solicit nominations for the "Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty". This award, launched in 2012, is given annually to rapidly emerging junior faculty who exemplify the creative use and development of mechanics. The intent of the award is to promote the field of mechanics, especially among young researchers. While interdisciplinary work that bridges mechanics with physics, chemistry, biology and other disciplines is encouraged, the ideal awardee will demonstrate clear inspiration from mechanics in his/her research.

Quantitative phase-field crystal modeling of solid-liquid interfaces for FCC metals

This work deals with the quantification and application of the modified two-mode phase-field crystal model (M2PFC; Asadi and Asle Zaeem, 2015) for face-centered cubic (FCC) metals at their melting point. The connection of M2PFC model to the classical density functional theory is explained in this article. M2PFC model in its dimensionless form contains three parameters (two independent and one dependent) which are determined using an iterative procedure based on the molecular dynamics and experimental data.

About adiabatic shear failure.....

Not too long ago, we identified dynamic recrystallization (DRX) as a potentially softening factor leading to the formation of adiabatic shear bands. However, the exact nature and the extent of the softening effect till remained to be assessed. The link to our new paper provides additional information on this issue.

Ashby PhD studentship, Cambridge University, UK

A fully funded PhD scholarship exists in the area of Mechanics of Materials, endowed in honour of Prof M F Ashby.  The successful applicant will have a 1st class degree (and ideally a Masters degree) in an appropriate field.  The precise topic of the PhD can be fixed after the scholarship has been awarded.

 The scholarship is for 3.5 years starting 1st October 2017


 Application instructions: 

PhD studentship in "Statistical mechanics of single cells" at the Cambridge University Engineering Department

Eukaryotic cells exhibit considerable variability in their responses in terms of observables such as cell shape, cell area, cytoskeletal protein arrangements etc. This variability/fluctuation is inherent to the bio-chemical processes occurring within cells: in-fact cells use these fluctuations to detect and respond to their environment.
