Looking for a Post-Doc position in Geomechanics, in Europe

Dear all,

My name is Adrien Haxaire. I am currently Associate Professor at LGCIE, INSA Lyon, France, until end of August. I am looking for a
Post-Doc position in geomechanics in Europe.

During my PhD, I developped a thermodynamical model capable of describing coupled THMC phenomena in unsaturated porous media. It was implemented in Cast3M. 

I am very interested in chemical reactions in porous media, their modelling and implementation. I am also interested in the field of CO2 sequestration.

Postdoctoral Position in Fragmentation

We have one postdoctoral position, available in October 2009, in the general
area of fragmentation and dynamic failure. The specific interest is in the timescales and lengthscales associated with the interactions of failure modes in materials. A background in modeling and simulation is essential, while some experience with shock physics is desirable. The successful candidate will become part of a highly collegial and diverse research group with activities in nanomaterials, planetary science and biomechanics. The work involves collaborative research with the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, and US citizenship is required. If you are

Postdoctoral Position in Mesoscale Mechanics

I have one postdoctoral position, available immediately, in the general area of mesoscale modeling. The specific interest is in the development of computationally tractable models that incorporate the appropriate lengthscales and that can be used for microstructural design. The work is in conjunction with research groups involved in the development of materials for impact applications. Examples of topics of interest include the processes of dynamic failure in specific microstructures, and the development of physics-based models that account for grain size, grain size distribution, grain rotation and texture.
