MARIE CURIE FELLOWSHIP - Early Stage Researcher

Are you a recent graduate in civil, mechanical or chemical engineering, physics
or applied mathematics, with experience in one or more of the following: solid
or soil/granular mechanics, discrete element method (DEM), bulk solids handling,
computational multiphase flow modelling?
Looking to develop a career in cutting-edge engineering with the opportunity to
live and work internationally?
The PARDEM project has brought together industrial and academic partners to
develop the DEM modelling techniques and to predict the behaviour of granular
solids such as pellets, grains, sand and biomass for industrial applications.
As part of PARDEM, the University of Edinburgh has outstanding doctoral training
opportunities in the area of granular solids. We are seeking an exceptional

An enthusiastic and highly motivated postdoctoral researcher is sought to work in the area of computational biomechanics by Dr. Kun Zhou’s group in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. The objective of the research is to study the tribological behaviors and damage mechanisms of joints and implants.  The candidates should have relevant research expertise, experience in numerical modeling, and excellent writing skills.

PhD positions in Multiscale computation and modelling of granular materials

Multiscale computation and modelling of granular materials

Granular materials are ubiquitous in nature and extensively utilized in many processes in civil, chemical, mechanical and mining industries.  Understanding and predicting granular material behaviour is vital for migrating natural hazards and for optimising industrial processes.  However, complexity arising from grain interactions poses considerable challenge to this task.  To date, there is no universal theory or model can describe granular material behaviour for a wide range of conditions.
