Ph.D. research assistantship position available

There is a new opportunity in my research group starting Fall 2015 on a topic related to: Modeling transient diffusion phenomena in conjunction with solid mechanics using the eXtended finite element method (XFEM). The ideal candidate must have a strong interest in Finite Element computations and in continuum mechanics. Experience with computer programming is desired: C++ (preferred) or FORTRAN and MATLAB (essential). Knowledge about parallel computing is a plus.

3 Tenure-Track Faculty Positions - AES at CU-Boulder

The Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for three tenure-track faculty positions in the areas of structures and materials, small satellites, and bioastronautics. Applicants in structures and materials are especially sought with the following research interests: Design, modeling, fabrication, and characterization of structural and/or multi-functional materials and their integration into innovative aerospace systems; preference given to applicants with an experimental focus.

Postdoc in multi-scale modelling of composites vibration response @ Ghent University (Belgium)

Nowadays, there is an increasing interest to use composite materials in automotive applications, in particular the use of fibre-reinforced plastics (carbon or glass fibres in a polymer matrix) is widely considered. The use of lighter materials, and hence a reduced fuel consumption, can be one of the possible solutions for reduced CO2 emissions.

Postdoc position in Paris on generalized continua modelling and experiments

A postdoctoral fellowship is available at Paris Institute of Technology (ParisTech) to work on generalized continua modeling.

The aim of this project is to probe the pertinence of generalized continua models by maximizing the non-standard effects of such models. It consists in a holistic approach including experimental, computational and modelling work. This project, funded by CNRS and Arts et Métiers-ParisTech, through F2M (Fédération Francilienne de Mécanique), is a collaboration between several laboratories in the Paris region. See the file attached for more details.

Looking for a postdoctoral position

Dear iMechanica members,

I am looking for a postdoctoral position to work in an experimental lab mainly focused on fuctional polymer material (like- hydrogels, composities etc.) synthesis.

Currently, I am working as as postdoc at UNC-CH to reveal the physical properties of living polymer material mucins/mucs.

I have completed successfully my PhD from the University of Hokkaido, Japan under the supervision of Professor JP Gong.
