Faculty Positions in Mechanical Engineering at University of Rhode Island

The Department of Mechanical, Industrial and Systems Engineering invites applications at the Assistant Professor level from outstanding individuals with demonstrated expertise or research potential in Advanced Solid Mechanics applied to Extreme Environments. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, loading of materials as a result of in-air or underwater blast or explosion, implosion of structures, impact mechanics, dynamic response of materials under extreme temperatures or pressures, saline or maritime conditions, and dynamic fracture fragmentation. Applicants are expected to have either a strong experimental background, or be expert in the computational modeling of solids under extreme loading conditions.

Ph.D. position, Mechanical Engineering, University of Houston

There is a Ph.D. opening in my research group in the Mechanical Engineering department at the University of Houston to be filled the spring semester of 2020.

PhD position at the University of Sheffield: Tomography of Large Structural Elements

Large structural elements forming structures such as bridges, retaining walls and tunnel linings may contain hidden defects that limit their longevity, with major safety and cost implications. Also, when a structure is subjected to intense loading, internal damage may occur which is not visible on the surface.
