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.
