Postdoctoral Fellowships in elastomers and related material sciences at Harvard

Applications are invited for one or more postdoctoral positions at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University. The projects will be related to elastomer materials with relevance to their optical properties and device applications. Prior hands‐on experience in one or more areas such as polymer materials synthesis, optical measurements, polymer processing is required. The project will have a strong experimental focus and will encompass elastomer processing, physical characterization, mechanics as well as fabrication of devices based on actuation with elastomers.

Looking for an open PhD position in Computational Mechanics

Dear all,

I'm currently achieving a Mines ParisTech post-master degree in computational mechanics at the Center for Metal Forming (CEMEF) in France. I'm looking to a career in computational mechanics software development. To reach this goal, I'm looking out for a PhD in this field. I'm more interested in numerical methods (software engineering) than in rheologic approach of materials. Remeshing methods, crack growth modeling, crash analysis, parallel computing or multidisciplinary optimization are attractive fields I would be motivated to work on.
