A doctoral (Ph.D.) research assistant (RA) student position is available onthe Synthesis, Characterization, and Modeling of Pristine and Atomic-Layer-Deposition-Treated Individual Nanoparticles. The Ph.D. position is financially fully supported including the tuition and stipend.
A postdoctoral position with primary focus on molecular dynamics simulations is available immediately at Shenoy Research Group under the direction of Prof. Vivek B. Shenoy . We are looking for a strongly motivated candidate to work on modeling of nanomaterials and soft materials. The ideal candidate will have a background in materials science/computational physics with expertise in molecular dynamics simulations with LAMMPS or other packages. This individual will have the opportunity to be directly involved in complimentary experimental investigations, both at Penn and our collaborators in industry.
We are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract for the international symposium on Structure-Property Relationships in Low-dimensional Metallic Nanostructures at the MS&T'13 conferencein Montreal, Quebec Canada on October 27-31, 2013.
At the nanobiophysics laboratory we are looking for a post doc to participate on an experimental work regarding the tuning of fluorescence in nanoparticles under the effect of pressure. We believe that it is the strain rather the pressure that is causing the shift in the emission. We are also investigating this effect using numerical models. While we are looking for an experimentalist urgently we will be looking for a theoretician/numerical guy in a year. All welcome if you have the right attitude and motivation.
A postdoctoral associate position is available at the Computational Nanodynamics Group at Northwestern University. This research project focuses broadly on atomistic and multi-scale modeling and simulation of the mechanics and dynamics of organic, biological and bioinspired nanomaterials. The post-doctoral researcher will have the opportunity to investigate diverse issues related to mechanics and transport phenomena in emerging nanostructured materials.
Fully funded Ph.D. positions are available in the Department
of Mechanical Engineering & Engineering Science at the University of North
Carolina at Charlotte. The research focus will be on developing and using multiscale methods for modeling nanocomposites and nanomaterials. Candidates should have a BS or MS degree in
mechanical engineering, material science, civil engineering or other related
areas. Computational experience at the continuum or molecular level is
preferred but is not necessary. Interested
candidates please send a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org

Encouraged by its current and prospective customers, Ebatco’s Nano Analysis and Testing Laboratory (NAT Lab) has expanded its nano/micro scale analytical and measurement capabilities significantly. More than ever before, customers can gain insights and comprehension of what is going on and why it has happened at the nano/micro scale.
In this recently published paper on Nanotechnology, we studied the in-surface buckling mechanics of one dimensional nanomaterials on elastomeric substrates. Simple analytical solutions are obtained for buckling wavelength and amplitude, which can be easily applied to the in-surface buckling of different nanomaterials, such as nanowires and nanotubes. It is shown that in-surface buckling of nanomaterials has lower energy than out-of-surface buckling, which explains the experimental observance of
