• Postdoctoral position – plasticity of amorphous solids - ESPCI Paris, France

    The PMMH (Physics and Mechanics of Heterogeneous Media) is looking for a postdoc:

    Subject: "Multi-scale Modeling of Plasticity in Amorphous Solids."

    Description:

    The hired postdoc will be part of a multi-scale research project focused on the mechanical properties ofamorphous materials. Project efforts will focus on the characterization and modeling at mesoscopic and/or continuous scales, via numerical and theoretical approaches, depending of the background of the candidate. Using a coarse-grained approach, we will derive a constitutive law in the continuum mechanics framework, in accordance with the results harvested at atomic scales. A sustained dialogue with the other members of the group studying atomic level mechanics is therefore strongly desired to make the different approaches on different scales “feed” each other, the multi-scale aspect being a key point in this project.

    Desired skills and experience:

    Eligible candidates should hold a Ph.D degree in Solid State Physics, Mechanics, Materials Science or a closely related discipline, with expertise/experience in simulations of mechanical systems and good skills in programming (e.g. FORTRAN, C, Python etc.). An experience in molecular dynamics, in finite element method or in solid mechanics modeling is considered as a plus.

    Application:

    Application in English must be submitted electronically by sending an email with “Apply for ANR JCJC postdoc” as a subject to sylvain.patinet@espci.fr. The application must include the following:

    - Complete curriculum vita.

    - Complete list of publications.

    - Description of current research and a cover letter.

    - Full contact information (name, address, telephone & email) of three professional referees who may be contacted for references.

    The appointment of postdoctoral fellow will be for 18 months. Starting data is envisage in September 2018, but this is flexible.
