Two Open Ph.D. Positions in Biomechanics
University of Connecticut, Storrs
Two Ph.D. positions (to fill this year)
(1) Computational Biomechanics: Mathematical modeling and simulation of biomechanical systems from the cellular to the tissue level; implementation of algorithms and material models into finite element codes such as FEAP. Strong background in solid mechanics necessary and some experience with numerical methods desirable.
(2) Experimental Biomechanics: Mechanical and/or optical investigations of soft biological tissues at the macro and microscopic levels. Strong background in mechanics necessary and some experience with mechanical testing desirable.
