PostDoctoral Position on polymer composite material modeling - University Paris 13, Paris, France

no longer available.


A 12 months post Doctoral position is avalaible on mechanical and numerical modeling fields at LSPM, univ. Paris 13, France.

The aim  is the development of a theoretical and numerical modeling approach in order to describe the mechanical properties of polymer composite material and structures reinforced by CarbonNanoTube. Once the description of mechanical properties achieved, the extension of the modeling  framework to the electrical and thermal properties and their coupling to the mechanical behavior might be considered.

PhD Robust Optimization Viscoelastic Sandwiches

Visco-elastic structures are widely employed for vibration damping. Nowadays, optimal design of these structures has become commonplace. However, operating conditions introduce variability in their performances. Taking into account this variability in the optimization loop is necessary to obtain optimal robust solutions.

Postdoctoral Position Opening at Stanford University

Prof. Wei Cai at the Mechanical Engineering Department of Stanford University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to lead a project on the modeling of dislocations in strained semiconductor structures.  The major task of this project is the development of an interface between the Dislocation Dynamics program (ParaDiS) with a general purpose Finite Element Method (FEM) program (such as ABAQUS).  Molecular dynamics simulations may be required to provide physical input to the Dislocation Dynamics model.

Looking for Postdoc position in UK, USA or Canada

My PhD in  Mechanical Engineering Dept. of Middle East Technical University, Turkey ended by Dec. 2014. In both M.S. and PhD I studied the numerical analyses of metal forming processes with ABAQUS together with huge experimental works. I have a patented idea in hydroforming of sheet metals in my M.S. and also I have developed a Ductile Fracture Criterion during my PhD which means I have a robust background of computational mechanics.

Looking for Research/Postdoc Opportunity.

Dear Fellow Members,


I am currently pursuing my PhD research under the supervision of Prof. Ralf Müller at the Institute for Applied Mechanics, TU Kaiserslautern, Germany. I have submitted my dissertation on October 2014. And expecting to defend my PhD work on March, 2015.

Research Scientist at IHPC, A*STAR, Singapore (Vibration and noise)

You will be responsible for using numerical methods and computer software to design, develop and validate novel window system. You will also be involved in theoretic analysis and characterisation of conventional noise control design such as microperforated panel (MPPs) and advanced active approaches such as active structural acoustics control. You will also evaluate prototypes and optimising the design until it works by using modelling and simulation as the main tool.

Postdoc Position in Computational Mechanics - Ohio State University

The Automated Computational Mechanics Laboratory (ACML) at The Ohio State University has an immediate opening for a one-year postdoctoral research associate position. The project is aimed at the application of the finite element method for simulating and optimizing the laser ablation process in aircrafts. The optimization process involves characterizing the optimal laser parameters (e.g., peak power, fluence, intensity, etc.) to maximize the coating removal efficiency while minimizing damage to the substrate material.
