Open position for PhD students on multiscale modeling at Louisiana Tech

There are openings in Advanced Hierarchical Materials by Design lab at Louisiana Tech University for research on multiscale material modeling and simulation. We will use different numerical methods such as Molecular Dynamics, Phase Field, and Finite Element Method to investigate the effect of micro/nanostructure on the overall characteristics of the materials under different environment. The focus is on low dimensional materials, materials for energy, and materials under extreme environments.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience (but embedded in a mechanics group)

I realize this is a bit off topic from traditional iMechania job posts, however our group is primarily a computational biomechanics group. We conduct much research in the area of brain biomechanics and more recently are working to move into multiphysics and multiscale areas of brain science. This project, funded by the NIH Brain Initiative, focuses on growth and bioelectric simulations of neuronal cell networks.

Opening for a new Master student in the Computational Mechanics group, Georgia Southern University

The Computational Mechanics group at Georgia Southern University, led by Dr. Xuchun Ren, is looking for a new Research Assistant, who are capable of and interested in performing high-quality research on engineering design. The research, supported by  U.S. National Science Foundation and Startup Funding, entails building a solid mathematical foundation, devising efficient numerical algorithms, and developing practical computational tools for stochastic topology optimization.
