Postdoctoral Position in Computational Mechanics

A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Duke Computational Mechanics Laboratory, beginning in September of 2010 (with flexibility on timing).  Funding for the fellowship concerns research in the simulation of dynamic fracture of polycarbonate.  The ideal candidate will have experience in some combination of the following areas (in no particular order of importance):

  1. explicit finite element analysis
  2. fracture mechanics
  3. C++ or C
  4. Viscoelastic constitutive models

The fellow will have the opportunity to work with researchers at the Army Research Laboratory and a state-of-the-art research code.  Prospective candidates should send a copy of their CV to Professor John Dolbow at jdolbow AT duke DOT edu, and should feel free to contact me with any questions.

extensive experimental dynamic fracture data for you


Your ad was just posted-but so many people read. Recently, we finished some new static interface-notch experiments on bonded polycarbonate, and polycarbonate/aluminum bi-materials. Since the dynamic fracture simulations of polycarbonate is not so easy, static case would be the first try. Also, I have quite few experimental data on dynamic fracture of Homalite (more brittle than polycarbonate-say to model), which could be your validation examples. I'd provide you all data if you think they are helpful to your simulations. Meanwhile, I'd learn more insights of my failure mechanics experiments from your simulation.


Respected Sir(Prof. John Dolbow):

I am Hemaraju Pollayi pursuing PhD(Expected Graduation Date:
August 2010) at Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of
Science-Bangalore and working with Dr. Dineshkumar Harursampath(PhD,
Georgia Tech).

Could You please tell me if You have any position available for a post-doctoral research fellowship ?

I am very happy if You take Me as a post-doctoral research fellow.

I have forwarded My CV to Your E-mail:

Thanking You Sir

Yours Sincerely,

Hemaraju Pollayi
