Professor Angela Madeo


Phd position MSME UMR 8208 CNRS

The Multiscale Modeling and Simulation MSME lab (MSME UMR 8208 CNRS) of the university Paris-Est offers a PhD scholarship in the domain of mechanics of materials.

The proposed subject concerns the modeling of fracture propagation in complex random media (i.e. materials whose mesoscopic properties are heterogeneous and described by a random tensor-valued field). The key issues are: (1) propagating the uncertainty from the micro- to the meso-scale; and (2) solving inverse statistical problems.

Interested candidates should have some knowledge of theory of probability and be able/interested in developing numerical codes.

For more information, please contact prof Christophe Desceliers (christophe.desceliers@u-pem.fr) who will supervise the PhD candidate.

The selected candidate will have to make an oral presentation on June 5, 2019.

Interested candidates should apply ASAP in order to go through all the application steps at best.

Please, feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who would find it of interest.

Michele Marino tra i vincitori del programma Rita Levi Montalcini

Ho il piacere di condividere con la comunità scientifica SISCo una bellissima notizia.
Michele Marino, attualmente afferente all’Institute of Continuum Mechanics della Leibniz Universität di Hannover (Germania), è risultato tra i 24 vincitori del Programma per il reclutamento di giovani ricercatori “Rita Levi Montalcini” 2017, rivolto a ricercatori italiani operanti all’estero. Il Programma finanzia un progetto di ricerca presentato dai candidati e permette l’inquadramento per chiamata diretta come ricercatore di tipo B in un Ateneo italiano. Il Bando è aperto a tutte le aree scientifico-disciplinari (success-rate 2017: 8%) e, per quest’anno, Michele Marino risulta l’unico vincitore di Area 08 (Ingegneria Civile e Architettura).

EUROMECH Colloquium proposals

The EUROMECH Council invites active researchers to submit a proposal for an EUROMECH Colloquium.

Running a colloquium is a particularly valuable experience for colleagues who have been involved in an emerging field during a few years and are willing to gather the corresponding community in order to review recent advances and discuss future research directions.

Colloquia do not need a heavy organization, as the size is typically 40-50 participants, with no formal proceedings. EUROMECH provides a financial support of 2,500 € to each colloquium.

The submission page is open for Colloquia planned for 2020 and 2021.

Please access the submission page at https://euromech.org/colloquia/proposal

KTH Stockholm – PhD student in molecular simulation of the three-phase contact line

We are looking for a PhD student at the Department of Applied Physics of KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. The project is a collaboration with the Department of Mechanics for developing multi-scale methods to study structured surfaces and heat transfer.

The candidate will investigate the stability and dynamics of the three-phase contact line under non-equilibrium conditions using molecular dynamics simulations. The group also hosts the main part of the development team for the popular GROMACS open source molecular simulation package, which will be used in these studies. Deadline: March 18 2019.
