2 Research Associate Positions in
Dynamic Properties of Engineering Materials and Structures

An experimental and theoretical post-doctoral post exists to develop
protective materials and structures to withstand dynamic loading such as
land mines and high speed projectiles.
The successful applicants will have a PhD and a working knowledge of the
deformation and failure of engineering materials from a solid mechanics
Finite element experience is needed for the theoretical post while the
experimental post will require experience in mechanical testing and
ideally innovative instrumentation.
The appointments will be for one year in the first instance with the
possibility of a renewal for one to two years. The starting date is as
soon as possible.
Further details and a PD18 form can be obtained from Julie Bazin, Tel +44
(0)1223 748243, email: Informal enquiries about the
posts can be made to Prof. Norman Fleck, c/o Julie Bazin.
Applications should include a CV, a completed PD18 form Parts I and III
(downloadable from, a covering
letter and the names and email addresses of two referees. Complete
applications must be sent or emailed to: Julie Bazin
(, Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street,
Cambridge CB2 1PZ, before 31 August 2007.

Further Particulars

A research group of about six graduate students and post-doctoral
researchers are actively researching the potential of lattice materials.
These are micro-architectural truss-like structures and find application
in the core of sandwich plates and shells.
The task is to develop experimentally and theoretically a multi-layer
structure which has a high resistance to blast loading in addition to
high stiffness and strength.
These materials may find application as protective structural armor for
mine clearance vehicles.
The required post-doctoral positions (one experimental and one
theoretical) require applicants who are self-directed in addition to
having an ability of working in a team. A strong publication record is
