IMDEA Materials Institute IMDEA Materials Institute is a public research organization founded in 2007  to carry out research of excellence in Material Science and Engineering by attracting talent from all over world to work in an international and multidisciplinary environment. IMDEA Materials has grown rapidly since its foundation and has become one of the leading research centers in materials in Europe. The research activities have been focused in the areas of materials for transport and energy and the Institute has state-of-the-art facilities for processing, characterization and simulation of advanced materials. More information can be found at http://www.imdea.org/materials

The strategic plan of the Institute is aimed at expanding the research activities into the area of Materials for Health Care and IMDEA Materials has opened two new positions of either Researchers (tenure-track) or Senior Researchers (tenured) in the areas of materials and scaffolds for biomedical applications and biomechanics of biological tissues. Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Materials Science (or related discipline) and demonstrate the ability to carry out independent research which combines high quality scientific research with leadership to develop an independent group. Selected candidates will be offered a five-years contract (for tenure-track appointments) with competitive salary and a generous startup package. More details can be found in the enclosed document.

Sincerely yours,

Javier Llorca

Young Postdoc Position, LMS Ecole Polytechnique on nanocoatings

Please find attached a young postdoc announcement on the « Theoretical and experimental study of polymer nanocoatings for prefilled syringes ». The position is addressed to recent PhD graduates (future PhD holders or candidates with less than a year from their PhD defense).

The postdoc will be pursued in the Solid Mechanics Laboratory of Ecole Polytechnique, Paris, France in collaboration with BD Medical Pharmaceutical Systems (Grenoble, France). The potential candidate will work on the development of new experimental procedures and theoretical models to understand the formation and mechanical response of thin polymer films over soft polymer substrates. The PhD involves strong experimental and theoretical contributions in the field of coupled diffusion and mechanics. 

Students with strong interest in solid mechanics and particularly in coupled problems as well as strong background in mechanics, soft-matter physics, mechanical engineering or any closely related field are strongly encouraged to apply by contacting Prof. Kostas Danas (konstantinos.danas@polytechnique.edu) and Prof. Michel Jabbour (michel.jabbour@polytechnique.edu). 

For more information on the subject, the funding and the requested doscuments please see the attached detailed pdf.

The interested candidates should contact
