PhD position on the mechanics of living epithelial materials in Barcelona

Marino Arroyo's picture

We are seeking applications for a PhD position at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-BarcelonaTech, Spain. The applicant will develop mathematical models, perform numerical simulations, and closely interact with experimental collaborators to quantitatively understand various aspects of single cells and epithelial tissues, pertinent to mechanobiology and to the mechanics of living materials. The applicant will be part of an expanding and interdisciplinary group with long-term funding from the European Research Council, see Depending on expertise and interest, the applicant may work at different scales (sub-cellular to tissue) and with different emphasis on modeling, computations, or interaction with experiment.

The successful candidate will hold a Master degree (or equivalent) and a background in engineering (mechanical, materials, civil, chemical, bio), physics or applied mathematics. The evaluation will be on the basis of the academic record and credentials, previous research experience if any, exposure to relevant disciplines (mechanics, mechanobiology, programming and computations, mathematical modeling), and English proficiency.

The application deadline is September 25, 2016. If you are interested, you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible by sending a CV with a list of at up to 3 references, a short (max one page) statement describing your research interests, and your academic transcripts. This and specific inquiries should be addressed to Prof. Marino Arroyo ( with “FPI PhD applicant” in the subject line.

Dear Sir
I am a PhD student of dept. Mech. Engg. at IITK, India and working with Prof P M
Dixit. I have submitted my thesis in August 16. I am working in Damage
Mechanics and computational plasticity. We have developed a non-linear
ductile damage law at high temperature and high strain rate from
experiment. We have successfully done a Taylor Rod Impact problem using
our developed law, which is almost giving satisfactory results at
different speed.
