Postdoctoral Position At Northwestern University

A postdoctoral associate position is available immediately at the Computational Nanodynamics Laboratory at Northwestern University with Prof. Sinan Keten. This research project focuses broadly on the atomistic and multi-scale modeling of biomolecular materials such as nanocellulose and their interfaces with polymers. A Ph.D. in a related field is required for this position. Expertise in atomistic and molecular modeling techniques (molecular dynamics, density functional theory, coarse-grained molecular simulations) is required. Additionally, a strong background in soft matter research (polymer science, biophysics, or related areas) is highly desired. Interested candidates should send a CV, a summary of research interests, contact information of three references, and three most relevant publications as a single pdf file to Evaluations will begin immediately, and the start date is flexible.

Electroelasticity of polymer networks

This work introduces a new microscopically-motivated model for the electromechanical response of elastomers:

The merit of this novel model is demonstrated in the following paper

Post-doctoral position in Computational Materials Mechanics at NUS, Singapore

We have an opening for a post-doctoral fellow position in multiscale computational mechanics of polymers. The project focuses on modeling and simulation of the thermo-mechanical behavior of polymers with covalent adaptable networks (CANs), e.g. vitrimers. The objective is to formulate a hierarchical modeling and simulation approach, which closely mimics key steps in the recycling and reshaping processes of CAN polymers by embedding the physics at two length-scales – (i) discrete-continuum (meso-scale) and (ii) homogenized continuum (macro-scale).

Springer Publication- Invitation for chapter in nanomechanical book

Dear Friends,

The reputed Springer publication from The Netherlands has given me the responsibility to edit a book titled “Nanomechanical Analysis of High-Performance Materials”.

non linear visco elasticity


 i am interested to study the morphology of polymeric membranes in non linear regime. I am in search of what actually a 'non linear behavior in a material represents'. Mathematically there are certain equations governing the non linear behavior. But my concern is how material behaves in non linear regime (under moderate to high stress). And what molecular and microstructural features contributes to the non linear behavior?. Can any one post me to under stand the micro sructural behavior of polymers in non linear regime. It would be useful help to me.
