Post-doctoral position in Computational Materials Mechanics at NUS, Singapore

We have an opening for a post-doctoral fellow position in multiscale computational mechanics of polymers. The project focuses on modeling and simulation of the thermo-mechanical behavior of polymers with covalent adaptable networks (CANs), e.g. vitrimers. The objective is to formulate a hierarchical modeling and simulation approach, which closely mimics key steps in the recycling and reshaping processes of CAN polymers by embedding the physics at two length-scales – (i) discrete-continuum (meso-scale) and (ii) homogenized continuum (macro-scale).

Sardinia radio telescope finite element model updating by means of photogrammetric measurements

 The 64 m diameter Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT), located near Cagliari (Italy), is the world’s second largest fully steerable radio telescope with an active surface. Among its peculiarities is the capability of modifying the configuration of the primary mirror surface by means of electromechanical actuators. This capability enables, within a fixed range, balancing of the deformation caused by external loads.

2 Post Doctoral researcher positions in Computational Mechanics of Materials

Two post doctoral positions are available at the University of Limerick, Ireland. The object of the research, which is funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), is to obtain an understanding of the mechanical behaviour of ferritic and martensitic steels at the micron and sub-micron scale and to link this behaviour to component behaviour. The work will involve computational and experimental studies of material behaviour using a range of numerical and experimental techniques.
