Research Fellowship in Engineering - Cambridge

The Maudslay-Butler Research Fellowship in Engineering was established to encourage the highest quality of research in any area of Engineering. The Research Fellow will develop and benefit from close links with the University’s Department of Engineering. The Maudslay Trust, which supports the Research Fellowship, commemorates Henry Maudslay, a pioneering mechanical engineer.  We welcome applications from any candidates who have recently completed a Ph.D. or who will be expected to complete their Ph.D.

University Lecturer in Mechanics and Materials (Assistant Professor) Cambridge

The Lectureship is a primarily an experimental position for a mechanical engineer who will develop a leading international research profile in the mechanics of materials. Relevant fields include (but are not limited to) additive manufacturing, in-situ testing, mechanical meta-materials and energy materials for a low-carbon future.

Ashby Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mechanics and Materials - Cambridge

Cambridge University Engineering Department is seeking applicants for the "Ashby Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mechanics and Materials". This Fellowship has recently been established in honour of the pioneering research by Prof. M F Ashby CBE, FRS, FREng. The Fellowship is for 3 years.

Research Associate in the theoretical and computational mechanics of liquid crystal elastomers and glasses - Cambridge

Dr John Biggins is establishing a new experimental and theoretical research activity in the area of liquid crystalline elastomers and glasses (LCE/Gs). These remarkable soft-solids can undergo large reversible and programmed shape changes upon heating or illumination, and the group will target novel mechanics and "artificial-muscle" applications in shape-changing devices.

13 PhD-Studentships/Early-Stage-Researcher-positions in STORM-BOTS ITN PROJECT

STORM-BOTS is a new european training network (ITN) dedicated to liquid crystalline elastomers and soft robotics.

 

Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher in liquid crystal elastomers - Cambridge University

Dr John Biggins (supervisor) and Prof Mark Warner FRS (co-supervisor) are searching for a talented theorist with interests in mechanics and geometry to work on the design of soft liquid crystal elastomer (LCE) machines. The studentship is part of a new Marie Sklodowska-Curie training network called storm-bots, which will encompass 13 students across Europe working on the design and creation soft LCE machines. The soft, anisotropic materials of the project, liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) and glasses, contract along their director on heating/illumination.

Theoretical - Research Assistant/Associate in Mechanics of Multilattices - Cambridge

A position exists, for a Research Assistant/Associate in the Department of Engineering, to conduct research into the mechanics of lattice materials. The post holder will be located in Central Cambridge Cambridgeshire, UK.

Experimental -Research Assistant/Associate in Mechanics of Multilattices Cambridge

There is an opening for a Research Assistant/Associate in the Department of Engineering at the post-doctoral level (or a researcher who is close to obtaining their PhD), to work on lattice materials. The post holder will be located in Central Cambridge Cambridgeshire, UK.

University Lectureships in Mechanics and Materials (x 2) - Cambridge

Applications are invited for two University Lectureships in Mechanics and Materials Engineering, to be known as the 'Granta Design University Lectureships in Engineering'.

Associate in Mechanics of Multilattices (Experimental), Cambridge University

There is a research opening for a Research Assistant/Associate in the Department of Engineering, to work on lattice materials.

The post holder will be located in Central Cambridge Cambridgeshire, UK.

Cambridge University - Research Assistant/Associate in Mechanics of Multilattices (Theory)

A position exists, for a Research Assistant/Associate in the Department of Engineering, to conduct research into Mechanics of lattice materials. The post holder will be located in Central Cambridge Cambridgeshire, UK. There is an opportunity to invent interpenetrating lattice materials in order to design SOFT and HARD meta-materials of any given stiffness, strength and toughness. The actuation response due to seepage of a liquid through the lattice needs to be modelled by making use of experimental results from within the group.

Lectureship (tenure-track Assistant Professor) at the Cambridge University - Engineering Department in Biomechanics and Mechanobiology

Applications are invited for a University Lectureship (equivalent to a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the US system) in Biomechanics and Mechanobiology. The successful candidate will join the Mechanics, Materials and Design Division to add to its expertise in Bioengineering. Applicants should have earned a Ph.D. in Engineering or a related discipline and ideally with post-doctoral experience.

Post-Doc in Lattice Material - Cambridge

There is an opportunity to invent interpenetrating lattice materials in order to design SOFT and HARD meta-materials of any given stiffness, strength and toughness. The actuation response due to seepage of a liquid through the lattice needs to be modelled by making use of experimental results from within the group. Currently, lattice materials, such as the 2D honeycomb and the 3D octet truss, exist in a single material on a single length scale. The challenge is to fill the intervening gaps in the lattice with a second lattice in order to improve the macroscopic properties.

Ashby PhD Scholarship in the Mechanics of Materials

A fully funded PhD scholarship exists in the area of Mechanics of Materials, endowed in honour of Prof M F Ashby. The successful applicant will have a 1st class degree (and ideally a Masters degree) in an appropriate field. The precise topic of the PhD can be fixed after the scholarship has been awarded.

Further details may be obtained from Ms Hambro-Fernandez (Div-C@eng.cam.ac.uk)

A position exists, for a Research Assistant/Research Associate in the Department of Engineering, to work on the mechanics of failure of adhesive joints. The post holder will be located in Central Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, UK.

Post Doc in Mechanics of Batteries - Cambridge

Lithium ion batteries are prone to degradation by a range of mechanisms including dendritic formation and swell-induced fatigue and micro-cracking. The topology of the battery plays a role over a number of length scales, from macro scale geometry of battery to the microstructural scale of the mixing of the negative electrode in the electrolyte. Topology has a major effect both on performance and on the failure mechanisms.

Post Doc in Mechanics of Polymer Foaming

Polymers are commonly foamed in the solid phase by the expansion of a dissolved gas such as CO2.  The foaming process is sensitive to the constitutive properties of the polymer, and the final porosity is dictated by bursting of the cell walls.  There is a need to model the solid foaming process for a range of polymers in order to determine the sensitivity of foaming to the properties of the polymer and to the process variables (such as thermal history and CO2 content). The foam expansion response is sensitive to the constitutive properties of the polymer.

PhD studentship in "Statistical mechanics of single cells" at the Cambridge University Engineering Department

Eukaryotic cells exhibit considerable variability in their responses in terms of observables such as cell shape, cell area, cytoskeletal protein arrangements etc. This variability/fluctuation is inherent to the bio-chemical processes occurring within cells: in-fact cells use these fluctuations to detect and respond to their environment.
