New openings in the Biomimetic Materials Laboratory at McGill University

Francois Barthelat's picture

I now have several openings for Masters and PhDs for the following projects:

1) Biomimetic study of the structure, mechanics and design of fish scales (funding: NSF). Involves atomic force and scanning electron microscopy, mechanics of composites and fracture, small scale and in-situ testing, multiscale modeling.

2) Design, fabrication and testing of biomimetic composites inspired from mollusk shells (funding: FQRNT). Analytical and numerical modeling and optimization, novel fabrication methods, mechanical testing. 

3) Mechanics of single collagen fibrils (funding: NSERC): Small-scale tensile/fracture/fatigue testing and analytical/numerical modeling.
