A position in computational multiphase fluid dynamics that involves developing and implementing models for large scale turbulent bubbly flows at Rensselaser Polytechnic Institute. Previous experience with computational fluid dynamics and/or multiphase flows a plus. Please contact me if you are interested.
The Graduate School MUSIC and the Institute of Structural Analysis at Leibniz Universität Hannover invite applications for a PhD candidate position (Salary scale TV-L E13).
The research will be carried out within the framework of the International Research Training Group IRTG 1627 „Virtual Materials and Structures and their Validation“. The aim of the International Research Training Group is to set up a forum for research and development of the newest methods related to computational technologies, virtual testing, and validation. Several positions will be available within the IRTG from 1 October 2010.
I am looking for Researcher, Ass. Prof. or Post. Doc position in the field of Fatigue and fracture of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and its alloys.
There is an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research position in the Advanced Computational Research Lab at RPI, Troy, NY to work on a multiscale modeling project which involves modeling of radiaiton damage of metallic materials. Encouraged to apply are creative, self-motivated candidates with a sound background in computational mechanics. Desired qualifications: (1) PhD in Computational/Applied Mechanics/ Materials Science. (2) Sound background in nonlinear solid mechanics; (3) Experience in crystal plasticity and dislocation dynamics; (4) Sound background in FEM technology; (5) Multiscale modeling; (6) Experience in code development on massively parallel machines is a plus.
Two PhD studentships opportunities are available at the Universite catholique de
Louvain in Belgium for outstanding candidates.
The aim of the project is to develop a novel approach for generating
dominant hex meshes for general/complex 3D models. The approach will be based
both a generalisation of Lloyd's algorithm and on the resolution of some kind of
PDE in the domain in order to compute distances, curvatures, surface
geodesics... We look here for an indirect approach i.e. we first generate the
points and then reconnect them. All the developments will be done in the
framework of gmsh (http://www.geuz.org/gmsh).
Successfull candidates should have a strong background in applied
mathematics/numerical methods for CFD. Some knownledge of mesh generation
Two post-doctoral positions are available immediately at the Univeristy of New Brunswick, Fredericton, Canada. One is in the area of micromechanics of deformation and fracture of engineering materials, particularly metals; and the other is in composite material modelling. For the former position, experience in microstructure-based modelling of deformation and fracture of metal alloys is preferred; while for the latter one, multiscale finite element modelling of fracture and damage behaviour of composite materials is required. Proficiency in commercial finite element codes, such as ABAQUS, ANSYS, or LS-DYNA is a must.
Interest applicants please contact Dr. Zengtao Chen at email@example.com for more information.
