Postdoctoral Position (3 Yrs) in Adhesive Joints, Tribology and Nanofabrication (Mechanics of Micro and Nano Structured Interfaces)

Daniel Mulvihill's picture

This is a three-year postdoc position looking at the mechanical behaviour of nano and micro-structured interfaces at University of Glasgow. In the broadest sense, the project aims to look at how nano and micro structuring of interfaces can lead to improved designs for frictional interfaces, adhesively bonded interfaces and lubricated contacts. It is an interdisciplinary project incorporating elements of: Mechanics of Materials, Tribology and Cleanroom Nanofabrication.  The work will involve elements of fabrication, rig design and assembly, mechanical and tribological testing and computational and theoretical modelling.  A major advantage of the project will be its access to Glasgow’s world class James Watt Nanofabrication Centre (JWNC) for the surface fabrication elements. Candidates with backgrounds in adhesive joints, friction, lubrication, finite element modelling or nanofabrication are encouraged to apply.  Applications from other aspects of mechanics are also welcome.  The project is supervised by Dr Daniel Mulvihill and co-supervised by Prof Nikolaj Gadegaard. It is funded by the Leverhulme Trust, starts in Oct 2018 and runs for three years. The appointee will be expected to contribute to the supervision and direction of a team of three PhD students. The University of Glasgow is the 4th oldest University in the English speaking world and is a top World 100 University (QS World Rankings). CLOSING DATE 19th AUGUST 2018. Please apply here:
