The Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Petten is looking for a Post-doc (24 months):
Subject: "Exploratory Research Project Novel Micromechanical Testing Methods for the Characterization of Nuclear Materials/μMech."
The main activity concerns the development of novel micromechanical tests based on the in-situ deformation of metallic membranes produced by microfabrication techniques. The aim of the project is to develop a new methodology, including sample preparation, measurement procedures and data treatment and analysis, for mechanical testing of structural materials for nuclear applications.
The candidate will be in charge of performing micromechanical testing ex-situ (using a nanoindentation set-up) and in-situ (inside a SEM). As well, he/she will be responsible for post-test examinations by electron microscopy, analysing the data and reporting.
The deadline for applications is 07 September 2018 and the link to apply is here: http://recruitment.jrc.ec.europa.eu/?site=PTT&type=AX

A TMS symposium " Mechanical Behavior Related to Interface Physics", close to the themes of Mecano is organized by Jason Trelewicz, Erica Lilleoden, Nathan Mara, Siddharta Pathak, Jordan Weaver at the San Antonio TMS 2019. Abstract submission deadline is July 1st (so you can apply to the Mecano School first and send your TMS abstract the next day): More info: http://www.tms.org/tms2019.
Dear member of the Mecano network, dear colleague,
The Mecano School, a once every 4 years event* will take place in Cargese, Corsica this fall, from October 28 to Nov 2, 2018.
Lectures in the morning will be given by prominent personalities in the field of materials science/ mechanical behaviour at small scale:
Jean-Noël Aqua, Daniel Caillard, Gerhard Dehm, Marc Fivel, Daniel Kiener, Gérard Michot, Thomas Pardoen, Laurent Pizzagalli, Gunter Richter, Olivier Thomas
There are still a few spots for 20-30 minutes presentations in the afternoon. This is a unique opportunity to share your research.
· This is a fee-less school, and only the lodging (less than 400€/5 days) will remain at your charge.
· Registration will be open from Aug1st to September 30th, on the school website, but the number of attendants will be limited to 80, so you might circulate this, but moderately!
· The deadline for oral presentation abstracts is set to June 30th
More information on the school can be found here: https://mecano2018.sciencesconf.org

The material department of UCSB is looking for:
- Microscopy & Microanalysis Facility Manager:
Responsible for the training, maintenance, operation and research in focused ion beam, atomic force microscopes and other advanced microscope. Responsible for management of the microscopy and microanalysis facility which serves more than 300 users annually and over 40 faculty research groups.
Skill and experience:
PhD or higher level degree preferred. Strong background in research microscopy working in higher education. High level of expertise in two of the following and basic familiarity of the others: Atomic Force Microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Transmission Electron Microscopy. Ability to manage a very busy facility and maintain high end research equipment and provide feedback and training to users on microscopy and microanalysis. BA/BS Required, PhD or higher level degree preferred.

The PMMH (Physics and Mechanics of Heterogeneous Media) is looking for a postdoc:
Subject: "Multi-scale Modeling of Plasticity in Amorphous Solids."
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 in English must be submitted electronically by sending an email with “Apply for ANR JCJC postdoc” as a subject to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
