Book "Simulations in Nanobiotechnology"

I am happy to announce the publication of a book "Simulations in Nanobiotechnology", which was contributed from researchers (including iMechanicians) who have expertise in the area of nanobiotechnology. The book is aimed at presenting the current state-of-arts in computational simulations of biological objects such as proteins as well as nanomaterials such as graphene, and also bio-nano-hybrid system such as nanopore-biomolecule interactions. This book provides the insight into the simulation-based characterization in nanobiotechnology.

Experimental Nanomechanics

Colleagues and friends,

As 2007 is approaching, our community will have a new platform for information exchange and discussion – J-club (please see previous posts. I would like to propose a topic for upcoming issue (May issue? if possible) – “experimental nanomechanics.” The extremely small dimensions of nano building blocks such as nanotubes, nanowires and nanoparticles present challenges for existing instruments, methodologies and theories.Modeling and computational work is strongly dependent upon accurate (reliable) experimental results which are still lacking. I believe that this topic is timely and of great interest to both experimental and modeling parties.

Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University Faculty Positions

The Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM) at Virginia Tech seeks applications for two tenured or tenure-track faculty colleagues. The ideal candidates are expected to interface mechanics with the domain of biology (cellular mechanics, soft tissue biomechanics, macro-molecular biology, biodynamics, biofluids); the domains of nanotechnology or nanobiotechnology (mechanics of self-assembly, nanocomposites, functional nanodevices, biological and biomedical applications); or the domain of energy, with an emphasis on nanoscale and microscale problems or biological principles (fuel cells, renewable energy, energy conversion, clean energy, energy storage). However, intellectual depth is more important than the specific area of specialization, since ESM faculty members are expected to have a broad scholarly interest in engineering with a special emphasis on the fundamental mechanics.
