Post-doctoral position in the Maddocks group at EPFL

Assistantship in the Maddocks group at the EPFL

A position is available to work on a combined analytical, numerical and experimental study of uniform elastic rods in two contexts:

1)  the characterisation of helical equilibria, including stability properties, in both the cases of self-avoiding and self-contacting configurations,


2) the equilibria of knots in the presence of friction.

Solvay Workshop 27-29 August 2018 | Mechanics of Slender Structures

Dear Colleagues,

The organization of the Solvay Workshop: "Mechanics of Slender Strucures in Physics, Biology and Engineering: From failure to functionality" (27-29 August, 2018, ULB, Brussels, Belgium), is going well and we are excited by the substantial number of good quality submissions that we have received. 

However, following many requests, we are pleased to extend the deadline for abstract submission to: April 15, 2018.
