[Position] Two positions are available for doctoral studies

There are two positions available for doctoral studies in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Michigan State University.  Two-year fundings are secured for those positions.  Research area is computational mechanics especially for meshless methods, wave propagation excited by piezo-material, interconnect reliability analysis under shock loading, and  structural response under extreme loadings.  Strong mathematical background with programming knowledge and experience with commercial FEA packages such as ADINA, ANSYS, LS-DYNA, etc. will be considered. 

Research Fellowship/Assistantship Opening at Utah State University

Post-Doctoral Fellowship: Looking for energetic researchers with strong background in constitutive modeling or multiscale material simulations. Specialty on fatigue and fracture of metals, polymer or short fiber composites is a plus.  The primary research will be focused on physics-based damage, fracture, and fatigue modeling and simulations at various scales.  If interested, please contact Dr. Yibin Xue via email or visit her website.
