UC Santa Barbara Mechanical Engineering Faculty Positions

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for two full-time faculty positions with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2017, or later. The Department is looking for exceptional individuals in all core areas of Mechanical Engineering with particular emphasis in fluid mechanics (tenure-track Assistant Professor), and micro and nanoscale thermal sciences and their application to energy systems (tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured Associate Professor).

University of California, Santa Barbara - Two Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Positions in Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the level of Assistant Professor.  

The Department is looking for exceptional individuals in all areas of mechanical engineering, with particular emphasis on i) soft robotics, including soft body design and mechanics, sensing and actuation, and ii) micro/nano science and technology, including micro/nano additive manufacturing, micro/nano robotics, and micro/nano energy sensing and heat transfer.

Post-Doctoral Position in Multiscale Mechanics & Physics (MMC) Lab at University of Texas, Arlington

We have an immediate opening for an outstanding post-doctoral fellow in our Multiscale Mechanics& Physics (MMP) Laboratory.  We are broadlyinterested in the fundamental physics and mechanics of nano/bio materials andtheir applications in innovative nano/bio devices.

New idea in fatigue problems

there are two analytical concepts that are very important in fatigue failure.the first one is crack closure and the others is residual stress .the first one is in behind of crack and the other emphasis in the front of crack tip. the question is if we use some devices such as AFM/SEM is it possible we model the energy filed during fatigue process?   if this idea can be investigated the second question can be asked: is there any similarity to model for different loading conditions? 


I appreciate if you also put your comment in my idea?


Bes Regards,

newer to nanotechnology,long for advice

Free Tags: 

I am a newer to nanotechnology,and i have great interest in computation on nanotube with continuum model,but after read some papers ,lost my mind ,i want to know what field have great future,Tsu-wei Chou have done a lot of work in nanotube with continuum mode in the field of frequency,elastic modulous,buckling,i don't know what can i do now ,long for your advice for me ,a green hand

sorry for my poor english

Journal Club Theme of May 2007: Experimental Mechanics of Nanobuilding Blocks

Welcome to the May 2007 issue. This issue focuses on experimental nanomechanics of nanobuilding blocks. The extremely small dimensions of nanobuilding blocks (for instance, nanoparticles, nanotubes, and nanowires) have imposed great challenges to many existing instruments, methodologies, and even theories.  In this issue, we will discuss – (1) experimental techniques and (2) size-effects.
