A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Duke Computational Mechanics Laboratory, beginning in September of 2009 (with flexibility on timing). Funding for the fellowship concerns research in the simulation of large-scale fragmentation phenomena. The ideal candidate will have experience in some combination of the following areas:
We are looking for a post-doctoral candiate in the area of computational (bio)mechanics. The project involves solving inverse problems in finite deformation elasticity with applications to the detection and diagnosis of cancerous tumors. Interested applicants should contact Prof. Oberai (http://www.rpi.edu/~oberaa/).
Researchers at Duke University are seeking applications for NRC research associates, to work with Professors David Stepp and John Dolbow. The NRC program is unique in the sense that applicants have the opportunity to perform research on a program they design. The positions are well-paid fellowships and are nominally for two years, extendable to a third.
We are seeking applicants who are generally interested in examining the intrinsic relationships between the structure of polymeric and biological materials and their mechanical and/or optical properties, as influenced by composition, processing, environment, and applied stimulus. Researchers with a strong computational or experimental background are particularly encouraged to apply.
The Center for the Predictive Modeling and Simulation of High-Energy Density Dynamic Response at the California Institute of Technology seeks a post-doctoral scholars in the broad area of multiscale modeling of materials. The scholar will be supervised by Professor Kaushik Bhattacharya, and will develop fast multiscale models that implicitly account for the microstructural features during the dynamic deformation of materials. Candidates with experience in incorporating Density Functional Theory calculations into coarse-grained models of mechanical behavior are especially encouraged to apply.
Seeking for a postdoctoral position in vibration control with piezoelectric material! Got one at last!Submitted by hao.sun on Thu, 2009-07-02 01:59.
I am a Ph.D. student in Department of Aeronautical Structural Engineering. I expect to receive my PhD degree in July 2009 from Northwestern Polytechnical University. This university features as a top 10 engineering universities in China. My dissertation is on active/passive vibration control with piezoceramics. Part of my work has been published in an international peer-reviewed journal (“Vibration suppression of a hard disk driver actuator arm using piezoelectric shunt damping with a topology optimized PZT transducer” in Journal of Smart Materials and Structures).
Can I draw your attention to a Chair position and Lectureship in Bioengineering at the School of Engineering, Durham University. While the curent Chair position is occupied by an experimentalist, the postitions are open to candidates with interests in computational modelling and I would encourage anyone in that area to take a look.
Further details are available at the Durham jobs website https://jobs.dur.ac.uk/default.asp. Closing dates are 10/07/09 for the Chair and 31/07/09 for the Lectureship.
