Post-doctoral position in Computational Stochastic Mechanics, Nantes, France

Post-doctoral position - Stochastic computational techniques to deal with uncertainties on the geometry in structural analysis

The post-doctoral student will join the pole "Structures and Couplings" of the Research Institute en Civil Engineering and Mechanics (GeM), Nantes, France (Nantes University, Ecole Centrale Nantes, CNRS UMR 6183)

We have recently been awarded a Research Project by the French National Research Agency. This project addresses theorical and numerical developments in the field of stochastic computational mechanics. The main goal of this project is to develop a robust computational technique to deal with uncertainties on the geometry in structural analysis. The proposed methodology lies on the extension of the Extended Finite Element Method (X-FEM) into the stochastic framework and the development of efficient computational techniques for solving stochastic systems.

PhD Studentship - Imperial College London

An EPSRC-funded PhD Studentship is available in the Mechanics of Materials Group, Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London in the general area of theoretical/computational solid mechanics. Funding comes in the form of an EPSRC award (DTA scheme), and as such there is much flexibility in the project scope. A few tentative possibilities are: discrete dislocation modeling of high-temperature creep in dispersion-strengthened superalloys, crack nucleation criteria for functionally graded materials, fracture and post-operative remodeling of trabecular bone (jointly with the biomechanics group).

Post-doctoral positions in personalized cardiac electro mechanics

Pompeu Fabra University - Barcelona – Spain The Computational Imaging Lab ( at the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona is a team focused on algorithmic and applied research in the area of computational imaging, modelling and simulation. The lab is composed of 25 members working in different domains of medical image segmentation, statistical shape modelling and analysis, computational geometry, pattern recognition and image-based and personalised computational mechanics.Currently, the lab is engaged in several exciting projects aiming at personalised physical modelling and simulation in the cardiovascular domain where medical imaging, computational mechanics, and biology play an essential role. This post is connected to a national technology platform funded by the Ministry of Industry that aims at applying computational imaging and simulation technologies to patient selection and interventional planning in cardiac resynchronization therapy. Our aim is to develop dynamic anatomical models of the whole heart as well as to derive boundary conditions and material properties from multimodal imagery (e.g. 3D US, MRI, MSCT, SPECT). Integration of all this information will be performed by combination of computational imaging tools with computational mechanics in order to deliver advanced diagnosis and personalized treatment planning and optimization.   The CILab is seeking proactive and highly talented post-doctoral researchers with proven track record of publications in leading international journals and conferences. Candidates should be highly creative, have the ability to carry out independent research but work embedded in a multicultural research team, and should be endowed with excellent communication and leadership skills so as to collaborate with other peers. The ability to work in a multidisciplinary team and be able to interact with other disciplines is essential. All applicants should have a strong background in mathematics and physics, algorithmics and programming [preferably in C++]. Proficiency in spoken and written English is compulsory. Candidates with should have expertise in computational cardiac modelling and simulation, in particular, on cardiac electrophysiology, cardiac mechanics, and computational fluid dynamics. The main focus of the research will be in the integration of the existing tools in the lab for computational imaging with computational physiology models and experimental measurements. The candidate will have to interact with members of the lab of related topics as well as with our clinical collaborators at several academic hospitals in Barcelona. 

Starting dates will be prior to May 2007; positions will be for a period of 3 years. Salaries are negotiable depending upon qualifications and experience of the applicants and compliant with Spanish salaries in academic institutions. EU citizens will be given priority due to labour regulations and work permit constraints.
