Postdocs in large deformation continuum mechanics at Carnegie Mellon-Qatar and at Michigan State University (East Lansing)

We anticipate three postdoc openings, two at Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar and one at Michigan State University (East Lansing). The research will involve developing continuum mechanical models for treating swelling in highly deformable soft biological tissue and for treating complex compliant media, meaning materials with a microstructure that actively rearranges either as a part of its normal function or else when triggered by external stimuli. Details can be found at:

Postdoc in mesoscale modeling for steels and smart materials (IMDEA Materials Institute)

The research group of Computational Alloy Design at IMDEA Materials Institute (Madrid, Spain) seeks a RESEARCH ASSOCIATE (Postdoctoral Researcher) (PhD Degree in materials/mechanical engineering or physics) to work in the area of mesoscale modeling for steels and smart materials. The selected candidate is expected to develop and validate a mesoscale computational tool using Landau/Phase Field model for modeling the microstructure development and solute redistribution in advanced steels and shape memory alloys under the supervision of a project leader.

Postdoctoral Positions in MicroPhysiological Systems

We have several postdoctoral positions opening now and in the coming months. We are especially interested in candidates with backgrounds in theoretical biomechanics who are interested in conducting bench experiments. These positions will focus on our efforts to recapitulate organ-level function on microchips for drug discovery and physiological studies.

PhD with Wind Energy topic in Bremen/Oldenburg/Hamburg area

Hi Everybody,

I am an Italian mechanical engineer. It's one year I've been in the Wind energy business. I served the Fraunhofer IWES in Bremerhaven within the "Simulation and Assessment of Wind Turbines" in the periods March/June 2011 and October 2011/January 2012: I was involved in the modeling of a 3D turbulent wind field approaching the WEC. I developed in Matlab two models: the Sandia Model and the Mann model.
