2 Post Doctoral researcher positions in Computational Mechanics of Materials

Two post doctoral positions are available at the University of Limerick, Ireland. The object of the research, which is funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), is to obtain an understanding of the mechanical behaviour of ferritic and martensitic steels at the micron and sub-micron scale and to link this behaviour to component behaviour. The work will involve computational and experimental studies of material behaviour using a range of numerical and experimental techniques.

Positions available in the mechanics of polymers

Two positions at the PhD level are available in solid mechanics in my group in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.  I'm looking for motivated students in the area of solid mechanics and materials, with specific application to the multiphysics behavior of polymeric materials.  A few key areas are polymeric gels, thermo-mechanics of polymers, shape-memory polymers, chemical reactions occurring in a deforming polymer, and so on.  Research topics are broad and cover the full range of theoretical, numerical, and experimental aspects.

Opening for Senior Engineer in BD Corporate CAE Group

The Corporate CAE group for Becton Dickinson is looking for a CAE Senior Engineer at the Research Triangle Park, NC USA location (Raleigh-Durham area).

Opening for new Ph.D. students in the Computational Mechanics group, The University of Iowa.

The Computational Mechanics group at The University of Iowa, led by Professor S. Rahman, is looking for new Ph.D. students, who are capable of and interested in performing high-quality research on engineering design. The research, supported by National Science Foundation and others, entails building a solid mathematical foundation, devising efficient numerical algorithms, and developing practical computational tools for stochastic design optimization. A substantial background in solid mechanics and structural optimization is a must; exposures to stochastics and probabilistic methods are highly desirable.

If you are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. degree at Iowa, please contact and send a resume to: Professor Sharif Rahman at Please note that we are interested in students who already have M.S. degrees in engineering or mathematics. The desired start date is Spring 2016 or sooner.

PhD or Postdoc position in Materials Mechanics/Numerics/Statistical Physics

Development of advanced materials for high-end applications is driven by the increasing understanding of the dynamics and properties of defect microstructures, leading to the ability to synthesize and control materials microstructures to meet specific application demands. Dislocation motion is the fundamental physical mechanism of the plastic deformation process in crystalline materials.

PhD Position in Arterial Biomechanics and MR Imaging in Trinity College Dublin

The aim of the research project is to develop a means of identifying alterations in collagen fibre architecture of arteries in vivo using non-invasive imaging techniques that can be linked with disease progression. DT-MRI has been used to characterise fibre patterns in animal tissue and this project will explore the means by which this can be enhanced in human tissue. Potential applications of the NODDI (neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging) protocol in arterial tissue will be explored.
