Investigating Stochastic Sensitivity to Solve Multidisciplinary Shape Optimization in Stamping, INRIA Sophia Antipolis, France


Stamping simulation, as are all the highly nonlinear mechanical
models, is ravenous in computational resources. Thus, when performing
shape or parameter optimization of a single or /a fortiori/ multiple
criteria related to the stamping process, one has to save as many as
possible computer evaluations of the solution fields, which prohibits a
naive use of classical zero-order algorithms beit deterministic or

Efficient Computational Tools to Solve Concurrent Optimization of Surfaces in Stamping at INRIA Sophia Antipolis, France.


The limited availability of mineral resources has led to the need for High Performance Material (Steel, Aluminium, Alloys,…).
These advanced materials are used to design lighter and stronger
structures, which result in a lower consumption of energy if one thinks
of the correlation between the weight and fuel consumption e.g. in the
automotive and aerospace industry.

Postdoc positions in Computational Chemistry/Computational Materials

Two postdoctoral positions in Computational Chemistry/Materials are to be filled in the group of Peter Kroll in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UT Arlington, Arlington, TX. The position is available immedeately and should be filled until January 2013. 

One project focuses on boron nitride and addresses the conversion from an amorphous pre-ceramic state to cubic boron nitride. The second project is on oxidation mechanisms and kinetics of high-temperature ceramics, with a goal to bridge between atomistic computations and kinetic simulations.

Immediate opening for a PhD student in the area of computational materials and mechanics

There is a PhD (RA) position available starting in the spring 2013 in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T- formerly known as University of Missouri-Rolla). MSE program at Missouri S&T is one of the largest and most respected MSE programs in the Us (

The Ph.D. research project is about developing a multi-phase-field model for multi-component alloy solidification.

Post-doc Position at Dept of MEA at University of Miami

We have a likely opening for a postdoctoral theorist to work with Dr. Qingda Yang (University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida) and Drs. Dave Marshall and Brian Cox (Teledyne Scientific Co LLC, Thousand Oaks, California).  The project involves development of advanced computational methods for simulating discrete damage evolution in composite materials and the application of simulations to the interpretation and analysis of experiments, including new high temperature mCT and image correlation experiments being conducted at UC Berkeley and UC Santa Barbara, respectively.

Post doctoral position available--nanophotonics

At the nanobiophysics laboratory we are looking for a post doc to participate on an experimental work regarding the tuning of fluorescence in nanoparticles under the effect of pressure. We believe that it is the strain rather the pressure that is causing the shift in the emission. We are also investigating this effect using numerical models. While we are looking for an experimentalist urgently we will be looking for a theoretician/numerical guy in a year. All welcome if you have the right attitude and motivation.

Two PhD student positions at The University of Sydney, Australia

Two PhD student positions at Particles and Grains Laboratory, The University of Sydney, Australia
The research project is concerning the micromechanics of granular materials, which include time-dependent deformation of geo-materials, thermal-mechanical behaviour at elevated temperatures, and transport phenomena in porous media. In this project, the main objectives are to characterise and understand fundamental deformation mechanisms from the grain level, and develop material models with grain-scale information with multi-scale approaches using simulations and experiments.
