Opening for a Post-Doctoral Researcher in Johns Hopkins University Center of
Excellence in Integrated Materials Modeling (CEIMM)
Two PhD positions on computational and experimental multiscale mechanics at Eindhoven University of Technology, NetherlandsSubmitted by RonPeerlings on Thu, 2013-11-07 17:44.
Our Mechanics of Materials Group at Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands has two openings for talented PhD students in the field of multiscale mechanics of materials. They are part of a European Union funded project on multiscale methods for advanced materials. One opening is onthe development of a fundamentally new multiscale approach towards material modelling and the other aims to integrate this approach with experimental methods.
More information can be found via the following links, via which candidates may also directly apply. Remaining questions may be directed to me (R.H.J.Peerlings@tue.nl).

In this Paper, the nonlinear free and force vibration of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) with simply supported ends is
investigated based on von Karman’s geometric nonlinearity. The SWCNT described as an individual shell and the Donnell’s
equations of cylindrical shells are used to obtain the governing equations. The Galerkin's procedure is used to discretized partial
differential equations of the governing into the ordinary differential equations of motion. The method of averaging is applied to
Postdoctoral Positions in Computational Mechanics and Multiphysics at the US Naval Research LaboratorySubmitted by siddiq_qidwai on Mon, 2013-10-28 22:47.
The Multifunctional Materials Branch of the Materials Science & Technology Division at the US Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC has an interest in postdoctoral associate candidates for several areas in computational mechanics and multiphysics.
Topic of interest include: a) biomechanics of injury at high-rate of deformation at multiple scales, b) multiscale dynamics of flexible armor, c) crystal plasticity and dislocation dynamics in electrically assisted deformation of metals, and d) multiphysics modeling of corrosion.
Applications are invited to the Civil and Computational Research Centre, Swansea University, for a PhD in the field of Computational Multiphysics. This project is in collaboration with Siemens Magnet Technology (SMT) and will be funded by an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) case award with an enhanced stipend.
We are currently looking for a PhD
student in the area of Computational Structural Mechanics. PhD applicants with a MS degree and publication in the area of solid mechanics,
computational mechanics and finite element analysis will be preferred.
Fixation and Mechanical Properties of Implanted Cartilage Replacements - Overview of three recently published papersSubmitted by Ali_Vahdati on Sun, 2013-09-29 18:08.
full-thickness cartilage lesions of the knee caused by trauma, disease or joint
instability are a common disorder affecting people of all ages. Implanted
cartilage replacements (ICR) have the potential to overcome the limitations of
conventional treatment methods and are a promising approach to restore
functionality of the joint. In spite of some success in engineering
cartilaginous tissue, inferior biomechanical and biochemical properties of ICR
compared to native articular cartilage (AC) and inadequate quality of fixation
IMDEA Materials Institute (Madrid,sapin) seeks a Postdoctoral Researcher (PhD degree in mechanical engineering, aerospace, or related) to work in the field of multiscale computational analysis of composite materials. Candidates with strong background knowledge in computational multiscale damage mechanics, and on the numerical simulation of advanced composites are strongly encouraged to apply. A general knowledge in materials science is highly valued.

Postdoctoral Position Available at Masdar Institute in Abu Dhabi: Mechanics of Nanocomposite and Nanostructured MaterialsSubmitted by Rashid K. Abu Al-Rub on Tue, 2013-07-30 13:32.
The Automated Computational Mechanics Laboratory (ACML) in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Ohio State University has one open PhD position for Spring 2014. The research in ACML is focused on the implementation of advanced finite element and meshfree methods for the computational modeling of materials with complex geometries, corrosion, damage/fracture mechanics, and multi-physics simulations.
Postdoctoral research associate position in mechanics of materials, morphogenesis and biosinspired structuresSubmitted by zichen on Tue, 2013-06-04 22:33.
One postdoctoral research associate position is available (dates negotiable). The successful candidate will work on one or multiples of the following topics: mechanics of morphogenesis in plants and embryos, fast motion of plants (e.g., the Venus flytrap's rapid closure), mechanical self-assembly and instability of thin structures (e.g., DNA, plant tendrils, self-assembly of nanostructures, etc.), and bioinspired structures. The candidate should have received (or expect to receive very soon) a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or any related field. The salary and benefits are competitive, and commensurate with experiences.
