Research Scientist at Institute of High Performance Computing, A*STAR

The position is still open for apply.

You will perform research and development work using active/passive vibration control measures to reduce vibration of typical offshore structures. You will also develop new
numerical models, new control algorithm, and optimize the locations of actuator/sensors.  

Requirements:

·               A PhD in Mechanical/Civil Engineering

·               Strong background in vibration control using active/passove method such as CLD techniques, structural health monitoring, nonlinear dynamics.

NMT Biomechanics Why is it better to be seaweed better than to be phytoplankton?

This is an introductory post to a discussion on the advantages of multicellular organisms over single-celled eukaryotes from an energy harvesting viewpoint.  It is intended for the New Mexico Tech biomechanics class but others can play.

As engineers we should seek for a numerical measure (or some measures) that allows us to decide how close an organism is to the optimum.  Consider two cases: a seaweed in comparison to a single-cell photosynthetic eukaryote and a herbivore in comparison to a single-celled eukaryotic animal.
