PhD opening on Mechanics of Bio-adhesion and Mechanobiology @ University of British Columbia, Vancouver (BC, Canada) - Mechanical Engineering

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to work on Computational Solid Mechanics, with focus on Cell Adhesion and Mechanobiology. The project is in collaboration with experimental biologists and biophysicists located at UBC and other international laboratories. It will involve the use analytical tools in Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics (e.g. Statistical Mechanics), and computational tools such as Finite Element Analysis. The goal will be to derive important scaling laws to understand the mechanical behavior of Biological Cells under different processes such as Motility, Differentiation and Mitosis.
