Structural Mechanics

1 Visiting Professor position
(Deadline April 26th, 2016 12:00 )

Solid mechanics; Computational methods; Soft media and multi-physics


Modelling and computational research in the framework of the activities of the ERC Starting Grant CA2PVM - Multi-field and multi-scale Computational Approach to design and durability of Photovoltaic Modules, with special regard to modelling coupled electro-elastic interactions in continua and interfaces, as well as fiber-reinforced/fibrillary interfaces. Contributions to research and PhD education programmes at IMT Lucca.


Researcher in solid mechanics with experience in continuum mechanics theory and constitutive implementation of electro-elastic active media in finite elasticity; statistical analysis and stochastic modeling of distributed fiber-reinforced media.

Formal requirements

A PhD in structural engineering, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, or in related areas. Candidates must have an excellent record of high-impact international publications and previous international collaborations. Candidates should demonstrate experience in performing computational research and constitutive modelling of coupled electro-mechanical problems.

Specific requirements

Researcher in computational mechanics, with expertise in modelling electro-mechanical coupling at the constitutive level in problems with finite elasticity. Ability in implementing user element subroutines in finite element programmes.
