postdoc physics of fracture (Aalto, finlande)

Dear colleague,

My group is looking for a post-doc candidate in the physics of fracture.

The activities of the group in this regard concern experiments on complexity of fracture mechanics and models / theory to account for observed phenomena.

The position is financed by an Academy of Finland grant on time-dependent fracture. The goals of the post-doc position may be tuned towards the strengths and interests of the person hired, and the aspects may include participation in the design and running of experiments, analyzing experimental data, and focusing in computational models including writing code. An essential part is interacting with others in the group working in related areas.

The Complex Systems and Materials group is located in the Department of Applied Physics at the Aalto University, 10 km (15 min by metro) from Helsinki downtown. The duration of the position is 1+1 years. Post-doc candidates are expected to have a solid knowledge in statistical physics, and have an interest in some mixture of non-equilibrium physics, fracture, and complex systems.

Freeform, 1 page applications plus a CV and the contact info for 2-3 references should be sent by email to by January 15th, 2019.

Best regards, Mikko Alava


Postdoc : Morphable structures with varying stiffness (ENS / ESPCI)

Annonce postdoc en pdf

We have a joint postdoc opening between the MecaWet lab @ PMMH and the Folding, Sliding and Stretching lab @ LPS in the area of controllable multi-component elastic structures, with a focus on experimentsThe goal is to design materials whose stiffness may be dynamically adjusted and to explore their use to rigidify morphable 3D structures.

A “baromorph” elastomeric plate morphing into a saddle shape under air suction (left) and into a cone upon inflation (right).


Description: By embedding channels within an elastomer we have recently developed structures that change shape under applied pressure. However, their softness hinders applications to large scales. Adding a more rigid component can rigidify the structure, but in a non-linear fashion. The project consists of designing and prototyping multi-component elastic materials with tunable rigidity. The general idea is to control the relative contributions of compliant and stiff components with a third active phase. The goal is to rationalize the fundamental aspects of the problem, to produce bulk materials and to design morphable / rigidizable structures. This multidisciplinary project is at the interface between structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, soft robotics and nonlinear physics.


Profile: Candidates should have recently obtained or are about to obtain a Ph.D. in Physics, Mechanical/Civil/Aerospace Engineering, or related disciplines. The project is primarily experimental but also includes some theory and numerical computations. On the experimental side, expertise in rapid prototyping, micro-fabrication, material science, and/or mechanical testing is welcome. In addition, an appreciation for scaling analysis, theory and computation is a plus.


Hosting teams: The successful candidate will participate in a collaboration between two laboratories who study problems in fluid and solid mechanics in conjunction with other disciplines: non-linear physics, instabilities, out-of-equilibrium statistical physics, multi-scaled phenomena, geomorphology, planetology… Their research involves a combination of laboratory experiments, theory and numerical simulations.

Although the project is fundamental in nature, we envision applications for medical equipment and, more generally in applied science.

The laboratories are both located in the Latin Quarter, in the center of Paris, which offers state-of-the-art facilities and a unique scientific environment.


Funding: Funding for one year is available (through an ANR grant) and we expect the candidate to help us find additional funding for a second year.


More details on our scientific activities can be found here: for the MecaWet lab @ PMMH for the Folding, Sliding and Stretching lab @ LPS




Applications received by January 15, 2018 will receive equal consideration.


Postdoctoral openings in experimental soft matter at IST Austria

I am happy to advertise experimental postdoc openings in my new group at IST Austria starting in the summer or fall of 2019. Exceptional candidates will have the opportunity to work on cutting edge projects involving fluid mechanics, triboelectrification, or active matter.

IST offers their postdocs competitive salaries and a variety of generous internal fellowships that can help jumpstart their careers. Additionally, the new physics building has state of the art facilities in a fast growing and highly interdisciplinary setting. Located just outside of Vienna, working at IST also affords its employees the opportunity to live in what is consistently ranked as the ‘most livable city in the world.’

Interested candidates should send a CV (including a publication list and references) as well as a statement of research motivation/interests to swaitukaitis @

Please kindly post this ad on your department’s notice board or internal listserv, and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!

Best wishes,
Scott Waitukaitis
