PhD position at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Damage Tolerant Composite Materials

A new PhD position is vacant at the Section of Composites and Materials Mechanics of the Department of Wind Energy at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The PhD project will concern damage tolerance of composite materials subjected to static and cyclic loading. The objective is to creacte enhanced fracture resistance by facilitating the formation of multiple cracks with large-scale fiber bridging along the interfaces in a layered composite by controlled mechanical properties by surface treatments.

Postdoctoral position in atomic scale modeling at the University of Connecticut

The Computational Materials and Mechanics Group (CMMG) at the University of Connecticut has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher in modeling of behavior of materials at the atomic scales starting Fall 2018. The student/postdoctoral researcher will work on the development and application of atomistic modeling methods (density functional theory, molecular dynamics) to investigate the links between atomic scale microstructure and the properties/performance of materials under various operating conditions.

PhD position in computational mechanics

We in Aalto University School of Engineering are looking for a doctoral student to work on numerical modelling of fragmentation of quasi-brittle materials. In more detail, you will study breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks. These phenomena occur under compressive loads in ice block to ice block contacts. The fragmentation process is complicated, and requires novel numerical modelling techniques. Modelling may need to be done on different scales, which may have to reach from very high resolution modeling to simplified contact models on larger scale.

Immediate postdoc position on 3D printing of electronics on conformal surfaces

The current technologies of 3D printing have huge potential in the domain of printing flexible electronics and direct write printing on curved surfaces. In this project we want to explore such technologies to print electronics on curved surfaces. We would experiment with various kinds of printing solutions for the fabrication of printed electronics onto arbitrary non-flat surfaces. We would test the feasibility of printing with various kinds of multi-axis printing platforms like syringe/extrusion printing, aerosol jet printing etc.
