ISAE-SUPAERO Toulouse France
Faculty position – Research scientist in Dynamics of Structures and Materials

ISAE-SUPAERO, Toulouse, France, is seeking to hire a Research Scientist in Dynamics of Structures and Materials, see link below. The Researcher will conduct his scientific activities at Institut Clément Ader, Toulouse, France. The activities of the research scientist will be turned towards the experimental investigation and the nonlinear modelling of the multi-physic couplings at the origin of the energetic dissipation induced by viscoplasticity, viscoelasticity, dry friction, damage, heating, etc. These analyses will be applied to engineering materials (metals and alloys, polymers) subjected to * high strain/loading rate (impact, bird strike, etc); * and/or to vibrations (passive control of resonant and unstable systems, energy harvesting, etc). A multi-scale approach will allow the modeling of local phenomena modifying the global performances of the structure. The deadline for application is November 17th 2017.

Tampere University of Technology offers 6 PhD positions for Engineering Sciences. One of the focus areas is Mechanical Testing and Mechanical Behavior of Advanced Engineering Materials. The students are selected based on their performance in their prior studies and academic potential. No detailed research plan is required, and the exact topic will be agreed later on with the supervisors, such as myself. Candidates should be interested in high strain rate testing, Digital Image Correlation, simultaneous IR and DIC measurements, microscopy, and modeling of material behaviour.  


Please contact Dr. Mikko Hokka for more details:

“Open access to JRC Research Infrastructures” 

The basic idea is that the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) opens its scientific laboratories and facilities to people working in academia and research organisations, industry, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and more in general to the public and private sector. This access will be on a competitive basis, as a group is expected to submit a proposal, which will be evaluated together with other proposals ...etc.

You can find the relevant press-release of our Commissioner
Mr. Tibor Navracsics at: 

Information about the conditions of access and details of the 1st Call for
proposals are included in the EU Science Hub page:

It is to be noted that the ELSA-HOPLAB has been included in this 1st Call, which will remain open from 26 June until 20 October 2017.

More information concerning the technical capabilities of the facility can be requested to:  JRC-OPEN-ELSA@ec.europa.eu.
