Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University Faculty Positions

The Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM) at Virginia Tech seeks applications for two tenured or tenure-track faculty colleagues. The ideal candidates are expected to interface mechanics with the domain of biology (cellular mechanics, soft tissue biomechanics, macro-molecular biology, biodynamics, biofluids); the domains of nanotechnology or nanobiotechnology (mechanics of self-assembly, nanocomposites, functional nanodevices, biological and biomedical applications); or the domain of energy, with an emphasis on nanoscale and microscale problems or biological principles (fuel cells, renewable energy, energy conversion, clean energy, energy storage). However, intellectual depth is more important than the specific area of specialization, since ESM faculty members are expected to have a broad scholarly interest in engineering with a special emphasis on the fundamental mechanics.

The day before yesterday I talked with Pro. David A.Dillard who had attended a international conference here.This was his first trip to China,also  to Tsinghua university.He delivered a lecture titiled "Rate-Dependent Fracture of Adhensive Bonds" which was very interesting.

In the lecture he had mention a phenomenon called "stick-slip" in viscoelastic materails. I think it may be very userful in the industries of bio-chips.If anybody has interest in it ,you can contact with him.
