PhD positions in bioinspired materials and systems at McGill University

Francois Barthelat's picture

We have openings for new PhD students in the Biomimetic Materials Laboratory at McGill University, starting January 2015.

The successful candidates will explore bio-inspired microarchitectures to increase and amplify the mechanical performance of engineering materials (glasses, ceramics, polymers).  The project involves micromechanics, fracture mechanics, finite elements, design optimization and small-scale and in-situ mechanical testing. Fabrication involves rapid prototyping, three-dimensional laser engraving and other innovative fabrication methods. Materials and systems of interest include nacre-like ceramic / polymeric composites, multilayered conch-shell like composites, fish-scale inspired flexible protective systems and bio-inspired synthetic bone graft materials. Collaborations with biologists, chemists and medical doctors.

Required background: Mechanics of materials, fracture mechanics, experimental mechanics and finite elements.

Preferred but not required: background in composites materials

Quel grand laboratoire !  Je souhaite obtenir la possibilité de travailler ici dans un proche avenir !

Dear Sir,

Is this position application dead line ended?

if not, what is the last date for applying? whether GRE is mandatory for this position?

With Best Regards,
