Postdoctoral position on: Inversion in nonlinear elastodynamics with application to the imaging of damaged media - CNRS & Aix-Marseille University, France

A one-year postdoctoral position is available at the Laboratory of Mechanics & Acoustics, CNRS & Aix-Marseille University, France.


This project focuses on the propagation of waves in damaged solids, which involves nonlinear phenomena. The proposal aims at studying the inverse problem of parameter identification from elastodynamic data to quantify the nonlinear properties of the propagation medium. The work will address the theoretical and numerical aspects of the problem.

Postdoctoral position on: Identification of elastic microstructures from full-field measurements - CNRS & Aix-Marseille University France

A one-year postdoctoral position is available at the Laboratory of Mechanics & Acoustics, CNRS & Aix-Marseille University, France.

The project focuses on image-based identification problems for physical quantities of interest in solid mechanics within the framework of optical measurement methods for complex manufactured materials. The guideline objective is to develop an identification framework for multiscale, heterogeneous and anisotropic media.

More information can be found in the attachment.

Application deadline: February 28th, 2015.

Journal Club Theme of January 2015: Topology Optimization for Materials Design

Processing technologies are rapidly advancing and manufacturers now have the ability to control material architecture, or topology, at unprecedented length scales. This opens up the design space and provides exciting opportunities for tailoring material properties through design of the material’s topology. But as seen many times in history with advancements in materials and processing technologies, the natural default is to rely on familiar shapes and structure topologies.

Ph.D. in seismology and geodynamics at ETH Zurich

The institute of Geophysics of ETH Zurich is seeking a highly motivated Ph.D. candidate to be working in the domain of seismic imaging of the Earth's interior. Global seismic tomography is a relatively young discipline that rose to prominence in the 1980s and

Journal Club Theme of March 1: Measuring Cellular Tractions

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Cell tractions are the outcome of the complex process of cytoskeletal force generation that cell uses to maintain structural stability, to sense the physical environment and to propel itself.  We are only now beginning to understand the process of cytoskeletal force generation, and we cannot yet say much about the losses in transmission through focal adhesion/integrin complexes (attachment ‘islands’ at the cell-substrate interface), but we can definitely measure the tractions that result from cytoskeletal force generation.  The mechanics behind the measurement method might be of interest to the wider audience of iMechanica, as it involves an interesting inverse problem and different solution methods that have incited lively discussions in past years.
