Postdoc position in Oxford on soft-tissue mechanics

I am advertising a 2 to 3 year post-doctoral position to work with me on aspect of soft-tissue mechanics (modelling/computation).

I am looking for somebody with strong numerical background and some experience in the modelling of soft-tissues (brain in particular)

For more info, have a look at  or contact me directly at

Applications should be recievd by November 18.

Three Postdoctoral positions at the University of Oxford: Brain modelling, soft-tissues, and water filtration

The Mathematical Institute at Oxford is advertising three post-doctoral positions within the Oxford Centre for Collaborative Applied Mathematics for(ideally) a 1st April 2011 start. The project titles (with links for more information) are:

1. Brain Mechanics, Cortex Folding, and Pattern Formation in Growing Tissues.

Post Doc

Computational structural mechanics with focus on soft tissues and wave propagation

Brain drop simulation

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I am doing research involving the finite element modeling of a human head namely Scalp, Skull, Brain & Duramater using Abaqus/CAE. I have finished modeling the parts, assigning the material properties, assembling and meshing the said model. I need to drop the whole assembly onto a 'floor'. What step should I choose. Also what interaction would I have to create so that the head would shear when it is dropped a distance less than 1 cm. Also bear in mind that it should not bounce.

 Thank you.
