Four-year PhD position on modeling of irradiation-induced embrittlement

The Micromechanics of Materials group at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials in the Netherlands is looking for a qualified PhD student to unravel irradiation-induced embrittlement in nuclear materials. A detailed description can be found in the attachment. Ideally, candidates have an MSc degree in mechanical or nuclear engineering, (applied) physics, material science or a related field, but holders of a BSc with the highest ranks may also be considered.

Apply before it's too late: June 1.

Post-doc for Mesoscopic Modeling of Autonomous Repair of Polymer Networks

Are you interested in contributing to the development of a totally new concept of self-healing in polymer networks? The Micromechanics group at the University of Groningen (the Netherlands) is offering a post-doc position for the development of coarse-grained Molecular Dynamics and/or novel mesoscopic models of polymer networks with dormant polymerization catalysts. The modeling work will be done concurrently with experimental research in the chemistry department of the university of Eindhoven.

Post-doc Vacancy for Molecular Dynamics studies of Polymer Adhesion

The Micromechanics of Materials group in Groningen (the Netherlands) has an opening for a PostDoc to study the adhesion of polymers by meands of Molecular Dynamics simulations. The two-year position is part of a collaborative, multiscale modeling project in which other groups in the Netherlands focus on more macroscopic models. More info on or by contacting
