Tenure Track position in Fluid/Solid Mechanics, University of Amsterdam

The UvA’s Faculty of Science is launching a major recruitment campaign called ‘Connecting Science’ in the areas of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer Science. Our ambition is to attract top talent from all over the world to a large number of newly created faculty positions in a wide range of exciting scientific directions. We offer a stimulating environment and excellent conditions for research, tightly connected to challenging educational programmes.

We are looking for ambitious and motivated scientists to connect different scientific disciplines. Our goal is to have a maximal impact on science and society.

postdoc: Mechanics of interwoven elastic rod systems at Princeton University

The Form Finding Lab at Princeton University, NJ, USA is searching for a postdoctoral researcher to support our recently awarded SEAS LACE Project X. In this project we propose to investigate 2D interlaced networks of elastic rods, found in textile crafts, and deliberately drive them into the large deformation realm to create novel 3D elastic (and thus reversible) structures with interesting mechanical properties. The research objectives of this proposal are threefold: to 1) use a mathematical approach to identify interlaced patterns for the purpose of shifting between 2D and 3D states, 2) investigate their reversible mechanical response and establish their performance envelope using an experimental and numerical approach, and 3) design, prototype, and demonstrate the feasibility of interlaced elastic networks at the architectural scale using robotic manufacturing.

Associate profesor in Mechanics, Oslo University

The Section for Mechanics, part of the Department of Mathematics, invites applications for an Associate Professor position.

The open position is in continuum mechanics, more specifically in fluid mechanics and/or elasticity. The candidate must have a strong background in experimental, computational, or theoretical research in at least one of the fields mentioned above (wave processes, multiphase flow and biomechanical applications within fluid mechanics). Furthermore, the candidate must be prepared to give courses within continuum (fluid and solid) mechanics.
