PhD Positions in Mechanical Engineering at NJIT for Spring or Fall 2020

There are two PhD positions at RAD Lab in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at New
Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). The focus of the research will be on creating novel computational
and theoretical models for the dynamics of complex fluids with particular emphasis on particle-laden multiphase flows and biological flows of active matter in the living systems.

Post-doctoral position at the University of Pavia, Italy.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position at the University of Pavia, Italy, with Prof. Epifanio Virga (http://matematica.unipv.it/it/people/2026). The proposed research theme is

MATHEMATICAL MODELS FOR ADVANCED SOFT MATERIALS

The call (both in Italian and English) together with the application forms (in both languages, but only one needs to be filled in) can be found at the following addresses:

Two Postdoc positions at Northeastern: Cellular structures, Soft Matter, and Biomimetic materials and structures

Two postdoctoral fellow positions at Northeastern University are available immediately, focused on the analysis of the nonlinear behavior of structures and soft matter using computational mechanics and the development and analysis of active cellular structures, and biomimetic materials. The research will be carried out at the High Performance Materials and Structures Laboratory (http://www.hpmsl.neu.edu/).

PhD opportunity at Queen Mary, University on London, on numerical simulation of particle-laden interfaces

A 3-year PhD scholarship is available to work on simulation methods to treat colloidal
particles that are flowing near, or are transported within fluid interfaces (L.
Botto et al., Soft Matter, 2012, 8, 9957-9971); the focus is on fluid
mechanical aspects coupled with physical-chemistry. For details: webspace.qmul.ac.uk/lbotto

Analysis of microstructural induced enhancement of electromechanical coupling in soft dielectrics

Electroactive soft elastomers require huge electric field for a meaningful actuation. We demonstrate, by means of numerical simulation, that this can be dramatically reduced and large deformations can be achieved with suitably designed heterogeneous actuators. The mechanism by which the enhancement is attained is illustrated with the aid of both idealized and periodic models.
