Postdoctoral Position - Multiscale Mechanics and Materials

An immediate postdoctoral associate position is available in Advanced Hierarchical Materials by Design Lab at the University of Alabama with Prof. Kasra Momeni on multiscale modeling of materials and processes. The goal of this project is to develop multiscale models of alloys under extreme conditions, such as radiation, heat, and stresses, to develop new alloys.  The postdoctoral researcher will lead several projects on the material design using various techniques, such as molecular dynamics, phase-field, and CALPHAD.

Computational/machine learning mechanics Postdoc/PhD position available at Columbia University

Dear colleagues, 

There is a new opening for one postdoc/PhD student position, to be filled immediately, in my research group in the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at Columbia University. We are looking for postdocs/PhD in the broad area of computational mechanics. Candidates should have expertise and experience on modeling dynamic responses of path-dependent materials and software development. Our project is specifically focused on applications of machine learning for computational plasticity and damage.

Mathematically exploring wrinkle evolution

Wrinkling is one of the most important mechanical deformation modes (for example, buckling and crumpling) that are omnipresent in our daily life: for instance, wrinkled fingers after soaking in water for a prolonged time, the folds within the brain, and metal wrinkles after a car collision, to name a few.

A postdoc opening at UCLA

There is an immediate opening of a postdoctoral researcher in the Mechanics of Soft Materials Lab ( in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The research will be on experimental mechanics of soft materials, and fabrication of soft machines. The successful candidate should have a PhD degree with expertise in experimental polymer materials.

Hydraulic Testing Machine Retrofits and Price Comparison

There are two hydraulic universal testing machine designs. The first uses a single sided ram to apply force and requires gravity for the piston to return home. This type of hydraulic testing machine is the most common and is used for static tests only. A schematic of a ram based hydraulic tester is shown in Figure 1. The second type of hydraulic machine uses a dual acting piston. The dual acting piston design provides control in both the up and down direction and is commonly used for fatigue testing applications.

Programmable 3D Self-Folding Structures with Strain Engineering

Self-assembly of three-dimensional (3D) structures, through bending, twisting, folding, and buckling, has garnered broad interest among physicists, mathematicians, chemists, and biologists. Herein strain engineering and geometric frustration as an on-demand strategy for fabricating spontaneous rolling “origami” structures with programmable multistability across multiple length scales are exploited.

Smart Laser-Writable Micropatterns with Multiscale Photo/ Moisture Reconstructible Structure

The design of a dynamic, versatile, convertible, and responsive micropatterned system is realized by a photo/moisture reconstructible multiscale film-substrate bilayer structure. Specifically, a hydrophilic polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)/laponite (LP) thin film is covalently bonded to a photothermally active polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)/carbon black (CB) soft substrate. A laser engraver can inscribe programmable aligned micro-wrinkles by manipulating laser power and spatiotemporal control.
