Research Associate positions at Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College

Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College, an Ivy League institution in New Hampshire, cordially invites applications for TWO Research Associate positions to start immediately. Collaborative projects led by Dr. John Zhang and Dr. Zi Chen are sponsored by NIH Director’s Transformative Award and Fortune 500 companies in the Silicon Valley. We are looking for outstanding junior scholars with great research potential who are desirous of independent academic or industrial R&D careers.

Looking for a Postdoctoral Position

Looking for postdoctoral position. My current postdoc contract at National University of Singapore will be terminated in the end of August, 2016. I have quite good experience in the following areas during my PhD and current postdoc career.

Areas: Dielectric elastomer, Smart Polymer, Energy harvesting using EAPs, Soft Actuation, Hydrogels/conducting polymers, Polymer nanocomposites, Dielectric/Piezoelectric materials.

 

3 Research Fellowships at University of Southampton for a European Project on Smart Bearings

Looking to take the next step in your academic career? Look no further – three exciting opportunities are available for ambitious researchers to join the UK’s most dynamic research groups for engineering research and education. 

Three open PhD positions about vibration energy harvesting at Virginia Tech

Three fully funded PhD positions are available in Dr. Lei Zuo's group in the department of mechanical engineering at Virginia Tech starting from Fall, 2016. One opening is about design and control of wave energy converter, one is on vibration energy harvesting fro oil drilling system and another one is about energy harvesting from backpack while human walking or running.

Please contact Prof. Lei Zuo (leizuo@vt.edu) for further information.

Graduate Research Assistant (PhD student) position in ME @ Georgia Tech

We are seeking a motivated PhD student (only a student currently in the US for an immediate start) to work as a Graduate Research Assistant in our NSF project titled "Metamaterial-Enhanced Electroelastoacoustic Energy Harvesting for Sensor Systems." This computational and experimental project will investigate electroelastoacoustically coupled linear and nonlinear metamaterial-inspired piezoelectric energy harvesting concepts for self-powered sensor systems.

Nanocomposite Electrical Generators....

A nanocomposite electrical generator composed of an array of zinc oxide nanowires is considered.
The electric potential distribution along zinc oxide nanowires is modeled using continuum
mechanics and Maxwell’s equations for the case of axial loading. A perturbation technique is used
for decoupling the constitutive equations. The governing differential equations are solved using a
finite difference method. It is shown that a gradient of electric potential exists along the axis of the
zinc oxide nanowires. Maximum and minimum values of electric potential exist at the extreme ends
along the nanowire length and have opposite signs. The positive and negative voltages are separated
