Fellowships and Ph.D. position available: Analysis and modeling of the mechanical behavior of 3D nanoparticles superstructures

Colloidal nanocrystals (NCs) form a family of highly advanced building blocks suitable for large scale assembly of novel high-complexity 1D-to-3D superstructures. Their properties and inter-particle interactions, nowadays, can be highly controlled by tailoring their size, shape, composition and surface functionalization.

One postdoctoral position in advanced concrete materials starting May 2012

Dear All,

I am looking for one postdoctor to work on advanced concrete materials and modeling. The desired candidates will have a solid knowledge on concrete materials and mechanics, and are familiar with advanced modeling of hydration, water or chemical transfer in concrete. Extra considerations will be given to candidates with some experimental experiences on concrete microstructures and material characterization.

Looking for a research position

Dear Colleagues,

My name is Romain Lagrange, 27 y.o, French.

I am a young researcher in theoretical and experimental mechanics (fluids and solids).

I graduated a PhD. at IRPHE (CNRS lab) in 2009, supervised by P. Meunier, C. Eloy and F. Nadal. This PhD. was about the the dynamics of a fluid inside a precessing cylinder (theory and PIV measurements).

Postdoctoral Position in Solid Mechanics

The Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh anticipates an opening for a postdoctoral associate starting January 2012. The position’s primary area of research will focus on mechanics of micro-scale deformation processes and characterizing the thermomechanics of deformation at micrometer length-scales. Applicants with a strong background in computational solid mechanics and crystal plasticity will be preferred.

PhD and Post-doctoral Associate Positions Available at Rice University

Ph.D and postdoctoral associate positions are available at Rice University in the broad area of atomistic, molecular and multiscale modeling of cement-based materials. The projects include carrying out bottom-up atomistic and microtexture predictive simulations. Computational techniques will be integrated to approaches from statistical mechanics and physical chemistry to provide quantitative predictions of properties of cementitious materials across different time- and length-scales. The research will be carried out at Rice University’s Laboratory for Multiscale
Materials Modeling.
