PhD/PostDoc position at University of Twente (NL): Hierarchical multi-scale modeling

The scientific goal of the project is to develop a multi-scale computational method that uses a single hierarchical data-structure as basis – involving also multiple fields. Starting from mesoscopic structures (particles or domains) a grid is constructed on a hierarchical, tree-based data structure. The hierarchical approach allows for micro-macro transition, coupling of different fields, and coarsening or refinement – where possible or needed, respectively.

Post Doctoral Position at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis: Micromechanics and Multiscale Simulation of Vessels

Dr. Kassab’s Cardiovascular Biomechanics Lab (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, IUPUI) is seeking a post doctoral fellow in micromechanics and multiscale modeling/simulation of the mechanical behaviors of coronary arteries. The project is well funded by NIH. Please see attachments for description of the position  and abstract of the research plan.

Career opportunities for Computational Mechanics in Industries

Hello Everybody

I am S Phaneendra, a Computational Mechanics Masters Student at UPC, Barcelona. I will be completing my masters degree by June 2009. I am working masters thesis, developing a material model for composites. Can anyone pls do me a favour by listing a few industries which can provide career opportunities for me in the related field.

Thank You


Post Doctoral position at French research centre LMPM-ENSMA : numerical developement applied to multiphysic coupling


The LMPM ( seeks candidates for a post-doctoral position in the domain of numerical development applied to the modelling of coupled phenomena. It consists in understanding, modelling and simulating the different couplings (like mechanical, thermal, chemical and diffusion problems) on industrial cases.

The LMPM is a research centre in France which focuses on  durability of material under severe environment (multiphysic coupling).
