Postdoctoral and graduate student positions available

Applications are invited for multiple postdoctoral positions to work with J. Hanna in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno.  Those interested in Ph.D. and M.S. positions are also invited to make contact.

Post-doctoral position at the University of Pavia, Italy.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position at the University of Pavia, Italy, with Prof. Epifanio Virga (http://matematica.unipv.it/it/people/2026). The proposed research theme is

MATHEMATICAL MODELS FOR ADVANCED SOFT MATERIALS

The call (both in Italian and English) together with the application forms (in both languages, but only one needs to be filled in) can be found at the following addresses:

Partial constraint singularities in elastic rods

We present a unified classical treatment of partially constrained elastic rods. Partial constraints often entail singularities in both shapes and reactions. Our approach encompasses both sleeve and adhesion problems, and provides simple and unambiguous derivations of counterintuitive results in the literature. Relationships between reaction forces and moments, geometry, and adhesion energies follow from the balance of energy during quasistatic motion. We also relate our approach to the configurational balance of material momentum and the concept of a driving traction.
