Francois Barthelat's picture

I have an open position for a Post-doctoral researcher in the area of the mechanics of biological materials and novel biomimetic materials, starting immediately. The projects involve mechanics of biological and engineered nano and micro-interfaces, mechanics of fish scales, and design, fabrication and testing of composite materials inspired from nacre. The successful candidate will lead 1-2 projects and will be involved in another 2-3 ongoing projects in these areas, in collaboration with graduate students (more below).   

  • Required background: Demonstrated experience in experimental mechanics AND finite element analysis, micromechanics and fracture mechanics   
  • Preferred but not required: background in biological systems, molecular dynamics, adhesive materials, nanomechanics.

McGill is ranked 1st in Canada and 17th in the world in the QS World University Rankings. It is a research intensive University located in Montreal, a vibrant multicultural city in eastern Canada.
