PhD position in numerical ice mechanics, Aalto University, Finland

We are looking for a doctoral student to work on numerical modeling of ridging of sea ice. Ridging is central to understanding the behavior of sea ice from scales varying from tens of meters up to hundreds of kilometers and has a close connection to sea ice dynamics models, which have an important role in predicting the effects of climate change. The applicant should be advanced in solid and computational mechanics and have at least average programming skills.

Postdoc at Johns Hopkins University in x-ray phase contrast imaging

The research — We use x-ray phase contrast imaging (XPCI) to study deformation and fracture of materials under dynamic loading on microsecond and sub-microsecond time scales. For example, we might like to measure the change in pore size distribution of a granular material such as sandstone under impact loading.
