The group of Mechanics of Solids and Structures at the School of Engineering at the University of Brescia (Italy) has an open PhD position. The appointment will begin on January 1st 2014 for three full years.

The following topics are of interest:

1. small-scale plasticity of metals, with emphasis on modelling the size effect through strain gradient plasticity theories and dislocation mechanics. 2. micromechanics of composite materials, with emphasis on modelling failure.

In order to be recruited for this position we require a deep background in solid mechanics, knowledge of nonlinear finite element methods, and ability to use FE codes.  If interested, do not hesitate to contact me at lorenzo.bardella(at) A copy of a CV, eligibility to work in Italy, and a description of research interests is mandatory.

The notice of competition is being published at the web page and it is inherent to the PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering, curriculum in Mathematical Methods and Models for Engineering.
