Postdoctoral appointment in mechanics

The LMAF seeks a qualified individual in the area of experimental mechanics.  The successful candidate will participate in the development of new theoretical-numerical-experimental methods in micromechanics of deformation and fracture of composite materials. These activities will be parts of the ongoing research of the laboratory which includes: solid mechanics, mechanics of materials, photo-mechanics, biomechanics and dynamics of composite structures. The laboratory is well equipped with contemporary experimental and computational facilities. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in applied mechanics, or a related field. He/she must also have excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. The appointment is renewable yearly for up to four years.  Starting date is January 1 2007 or later.Interested candidates are invited to send a letter stating his/her research interests, a resume and three references to:

Professor John Botsis, LMAF/I2S/STI/EPFL, Station 9, CH-1015 Lausanne. Fax: + 41 21 693 2999

Applications by e-mail or fax are also welcomed.

Two Doctoral candidate positions in applied mechanics

The laboratory of applied mechanics and reliability analysis at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (LMAF/STI/EPFL) is looking for two qualified individuals to carry out combined experimental analytical and numerical research on micromechanics of heterogeneous materials. The results of their work will lead to their doctoral degree. The successful candidates should have a diploma (or equivalent degree) in mechanical engineering, physics, mechanics of materials or a related field with strong interests in experimental mechanics using optical techniques and computational methods in mechanics. The candidates must also have excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. The starting date is January 1 2007, or latter. The conditions of acceptance are those of the EPFL.

Applications or further information should be directed to : Professor John BOTSIS, LMAF/STI/EPFL, station 9, CH-1015 Lausanne
