PhD Studentship@University of Southampton, UK - Wet Adhesive Poro-Viscoelastic Contact Along Human Skin Surface

Skin, the largest organ of the human body, acts as a
multi-functional biophysical interface to the external environment. The serial
interfacial phenomena along the skin/environment conjunction, particularly when
interacting with cosmetic and consumer goods (e.g. razor and shave preparation)
is determined by the interplay between the chemical structure and arrangement
of stratum corneum lipids,
environmental factors (e.g. hydration level) and also the physical
characteristics of skin surface relief. Therefore, the chemical and biophysical
properties of the stratum corneum
need to be considered jointly to approach the complexity of skin tribo-physics.
These technical challenges present outstanding opportunities for high quality

PhD Studentship@University of Southampton,UK-The Design of Lubricant-Surface Interaction for Reduced Boundary Friction and Wear

Mechanical losses account for 15% of total energy loss in an
IC engine where 45% of these losses result from friction of piston-ring
assembly. An increase in mechanical efficiency of 10% could lead to improved
fuel consumption of 1.5%. Taking into account the large number of vehicles on
road (30 million in the UK in 2010 according to the Society of Motor
Manufacturers and Traders) and fuel
consumption of 12.5 miles/litre, the potential fuel saving would accrue to

Postdoctoral research associate position in mechanics of materials, morphogenesis and biosinspired structures

One postdoctoral research associate position is available (dates negotiable). The successful candidate will work on one or multiples of the following topics: mechanics of morphogenesis in plants and embryos, fast motion of plants (e.g., the Venus flytrap's rapid closure), mechanical self-assembly and instability of thin structures (e.g., DNA, plant tendrils, self-assembly of nanostructures, etc.), and bioinspired structures. The candidate should have received (or expect to receive very soon) a Ph.D.
