Highly paid PhD positions

Regarding the post:

Here are some clarifications:

(1) Applicants do not need to have English Language Proficiency test results at the time of applying. However, they need to have this before they could start a PhD.

(2) Salary range is approx £31k to £35k per annum, which is over double that of a normal PhD studentship in the UK.

2 PhD Positions: Solid mechanics, fibre networks

Would you like to be a part of the Ph.D. research training program linked to the industry and leading European research organizations? Are you interested in mastering advanced experimental and modelling tools? Please, apply!

Overview of solid mechanics

This video (LINK)  attempts to give the big picture of solid mechanics along with the brief explanation of the constituent topics.

This is an educational outreach initiative targeted at all engineers interested in mechanics and seek simpler explanations. Kindly share if you learn something out of this !

Thanks,

Postdoc in solid mechanics, particularly paper mechanics

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

What are Principal Stresses (explained without math equations) ?

In the following video, I have tried to explain the concept of principal stress in a more physical way and without involving any mathematical equations, hope you can easily imbibe the concept.

PhD position in computational solid mechanics

Aalto University (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, is looking for a doctoral student for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel modelling methods that can be used reliably on different scales. In addition to the computational work, we will perform experiments on this topic.

Post doc position in computational solid mechanics

We in Aalto Univeristy (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, look for a post doc to join our group for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel experiments and numerical models, and in this research, you will be working on both. The unique experiments on this topic will be performed in the cold room of the department.  Numerical modelling will be done on a variety of scales.
