Project Positions in Fracture Mechanics (IIT Delhi)

I am looking to fill a few project positions in the next couple of months on the following topics in Fracture Mechanics at the Department of Applied Mechanics, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi:

Required skills for all positions are excellent fundamentals in solid mechanics and good technical writing skills. Desirable skills are bracketed.

P-1. Molecular dynamics simulation of fracture in amorphous solids (Programming and LAMMPS)

P-2. XFEM simulation of fracture in brittle solids (Programming and FEM)

P-3. Experiments of fracture in brittle solids/rocks (Sample preparation, industrial experience and characterization)

P-4. Experiments of fracture in lattice composites (Fabrication and characterization)

The duration for each position will be for an year and may be extended. If interested, please send the following (as a single PDF file) to before 31 August 2018:

 (a) A one-page essay justifying your suitability for one of the above projects. A separate essay is required for each position you are interested in, and

 (b) CV, and

 (c) Degrees of Bachelors/Masters in any suitable area (civil, mining, aerospace, mechanical, etc.) of engineering, and

 (d) Transcripts of the above degrees.


In case the candidate wishes to register into the PhD programme after joining the project – they will apply according to the procedures of the department/institute (information available elsewhere).
