Post doctoral position in geomechanics at CSIRO Petroleum, Melbourne, Australia

The post doctoral fellow will be engaged in research on the mechanics of hydraulic fracturing of rock. The primary aim of this project is to investigate, using a novel approach for experimentation spanning laboratory and field scales, the effect of fracture size on the energy required for fracture extension in rock.

Openings for New Ph.D. Students on Composite Materials and Failure Mechanics at Vanderbilt University, USA

New students may start from January 2008 if the graduate students have previous research experience in solid mechanics (e.g., nano/micro-mechanics, computational mechanics) or material engineering (MD simulation, mechanical behaviors). Students will have the opportunities to conduct balanced experimental and computational work on the durabilty and impact failure of marine composite materials; failure and material designs of nanocomposite materials; or rehabilitation of infrastructure materials using composites and other materials.  An MS degree is required.

Opening for new Ph.D. students in the computational mechanics group, 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 graduate research in stochastic dynamics and want to pursue academic/research career afterwards. The research, supported by NSF and others, entails developing new decomposition methods for solving general random eigenvalue problems encountered in engineering and sciences. The topic covers dynamics (mechanics), stochastics, and computational methods.

Seeking for a PhD or Research position in APPLIED MECHANICS

Hi, guys...

I am a 26 years old Mechanical Engineer (newly graduated).

Can somebody tell me where I can find a very good PhD studentship in APPLIED MECHANICS (i.e. vibro-acoustics, control systems, vehicle dynamics, etc...) in Europe? Or something like a Research fellow (1 or 2 years would be great)?

 I'm getting crazy with that... I hope somebody can help me.
