Two positions are open for Ph.D. or Masters students in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. The positions are joined with the Modeling and Simulation group and the Micro and Nano mechanics laboratory. We are looking for skilled and highly motivated individuals to pursue a Ph.D. or M.A.Sc. in the area of multiscale modeling of materials and solids mechanics. Two projects are available:

i)                Accelerated coarse-grained molecular dynamics and multiscale modeling of materials,

ii)                Multi-scale mechanics of adhesion and fracture for soft materials.

The ideal candidates should have a good knowledge of mechanical engineering, especially in solids and structures. A good knowledge of finite element analysis (FEA), structural design, mathematics, and physics are required. In addition, candidates with programming skills in C/C++and other languages are highly encouraged to apply. Qualified students will be provided with full financial support and trained to do independent research.

Candidate should send a cover letter, an updated CV with representative publications for Ph.D. applicants, the name of at least two references, and a record of their grades to Profs. Bacca and Ponga at and mponga@mech.ubca . Only short-listed candidates will be contacted for interviews. 

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the top departments in the Applied Science Division with more than 30 graduate students. UBC is consistently ranked about top 40 universities in the world and is ranked among the top 20 public universities worldwide. The Vancouver Campus is located in the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver, Canada and offers a large number of outdoors activities, including aquatic sports and ski.
