Several conferences of potential interest for the Mecano community:
- Materials for Advanced Metallization -MAM (Dresden, March 26-29, 2017). Abstract submission deadline : January 20, 2017.
- Plasticité (Rennes, April 10-12, 2017). Abstract submission deadline : January 31, 2017.
- BSSM’s International Conference on Advances in Experimental Mechanics (Sheffield, August 29-31, 2017). Abstract submission deadline : January 30, 2017
- ECI Nanomechanical Testing in Materials Research and Development VI (Dubrovnik, October 1-5, 2017) (updates will be posted soon). ( Chair: K. Durst, Technical University of Darmstadt)
A post-doctoral position is available at CIRIMAT – Toulouse, France.
This position is in the framework of the European (M-ERA.NET) project: MICROPORES – HIP, Modeling of annihilation of micropores in single-crystal nickel-base superalloys during hot isostatic pressing.
Applicants must have a doctoral degree in Materials Science or in Physics, good skills in electron microscopy with strong practise in one at least the tools to be used (TEM, SEM or FIB) and some knowledge in dislocations theory and mechanical properties of metals and alloys.
The French community of dislocations and mechanical properties of solids will gather for 3 days in Rennes, from April 10th to 12th, 2017.
Abstract submission is open till January 31st, 2017.
