Postdoctoral Fellow in Computational Mechanics

A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Duke Computational Mechanics Laboratory, beginning in September of 2009 (with flexibility on timing).  Funding for the fellowship concerns research in the simulation of large-scale fragmentation phenomena.  The ideal candidate will have experience in some combination of the following areas:

Post-doctoral research opportunity at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

We are looking for a post-doctoral candiate in the area of computational (bio)mechanics. The project involves solving inverse problems in finite deformation elasticity with applications to the detection and diagnosis of cancerous tumors. Interested applicants should contact Prof. Oberai (

NRC Research Fellowship Opportunity at Duke University

Researchers at Duke University are seeking applications for NRC research associates, to work with Professors David Stepp and John Dolbow.  The NRC program is unique in the sense that applicants have the opportunity to perform research on a program they design.  The positions are well-paid fellowships and are nominally for two years, extendable to a third.'s picture

Post-doctoral Position in Multiscale Modeling at Caltech

The Center for the Predictive Modeling and Simulation of High-Energy Density Dynamic Response at the California Institute of Technology seeks a post-doctoral scholars in the broad area of multiscale modeling of materials.  The scholar will be supervised by Professor Kaushik Bhattacharya, and will develop fast multiscale models that implicitly account for the microstructural features during the dynamic deformation of materials.

Chair and Lectureship in BioEngineering at Durham University, UK


Can I draw your attention to a Chair position and Lectureship in Bioengineering at the School of Engineering, Durham University. While the curent Chair position is occupied by an experimentalist, the postitions are open to candidates with interests in computational modelling and I would encourage anyone in that area to take a look.

Further details are available at the Durham jobs website Closing dates are 10/07/09 for the Chair and 31/07/09 for the Lectureship.
