Ph.D. position in mechanics of polymer thin films at University of Central Florida

Applications are invited for a Ph.D. position in modeling and characterization of polymer thin films at University of Central Florida (UCF). The project is focused on viscoelasticity, yielding, and viscoplasticity of polymer films for superpressure balloon and solar sail applications. A combination of computational, experimental, and analytical methods will be utilized in this research.

Three open positions for Ph.D.

Pr. Remacle has recently received an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council. The aim of the research is to work

on hexahedral mesh generation, including parallel meshing, boundary layer meshing and GPU-based meshing. Three (or more) open positions

for a Ph.D. mandate are open. Candidates should directly contact Jean-François Remacle (

Career after the Ph.D.


I'm an Engineer and a Ph.D. student in Applied Maths, working in the field of Nonlinear Finite Elements for Elasticity. I often think about my future career since, by now, I have a strong experience with coding FE in C++/Matlab/Mathematica, but no clue whatsoever about commercial black-box softwares for FEA. I'm worried about this, since most of the job vacancies from the industry (I'm not interested in pursuing the Academic career) seem to require only experience with a specific software and application, and not to directly code FE.
