Postdoctoral Position: Mesoscale Modeling Materials at the University of Connecticut

The Computational Materials & Mechanics Group (CMMG) at the University of Connecticut has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher in the area of modeling of mechanical behavior of materials at the mesoscale. The postdoctoral researcher will work on the development and application of mesoscale models to investigate the dynamic response of metallic materials (high strain rate, shock) and will involve generation of data using atomistic simulations (molecular dynamics) for validation.


Aalto University School of Engineering in Finland has an open position for a doctoral student in the Arctic Marine and Ice Technology research group at the Department of Applied Mechanics. Our research group studies the behavior of ships and structures in ice, ice mechanics and also assesses the impact of sea ice on the safety of maritime transportation. An important part of our research is experimental work. For that we have excellent possibilities as we operate the Aalto Ice Tank, a 40 m × 40 m ice model basin.

PhD Position in Computational Mechanics of Glasses, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Friction and wear are important processes that determine the function of many mechanical devices, but their underlying microscopic physical principles are complex and often not well understood. Amorphous – or glassy – materials often form on surfaces that have experienced frictional loading. The research will involve large-scale molecular dynamics simulation of the near-surface deformation upon indentation and scratching of network and bulk metallic glasses.
