RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES IN COMPOSITE MATERIALS
(1 COMPUTATIONAL, 1 EXPERIMENTAL)

University of Limerick, Republic of IRELAND
Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering
_____________________________________________________
Bolted Joints in Composite Aircraft Structures
_____________________________________________________

The above project will be funded by the EU (subject to contract
negotiations), and involves 11 partners, including 3 aircraft manufacturers.
The University of Limerick is the Project Co-ordinator and is therefore
responsible for overall project co-ordination as well as a substantial
research programme of its own. The University's research will involve an
experimental and computational study of single and multi-bolt joint
specimens, with a view to determining damage propagation and failure
mechanisms, and implementation of damage laws into finite element codes.
Three-dimensional finite element modelling, incorporating user-defined
damage laws and failure criteria will be performed, and software to
substantially automate the process of generating models will be developed.

TWO positions, one for an experimentalist and one for a computational
specialist will be available with a likely start date of December 1999 or
January 2000. The most likely combination of personnel will be as follows,
though the level/duration of appointments and assignments of duties could
vary depending on available personnel:

POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW: The candidate will be expected to possess a doctorate
in engineering or a closely related discipline with extensive experience in
non-linear finite element modelling, preferably applied to composite
materials. He/she should also have experience of software development, and
developing user-defined subroutines for FE codes.  Experience with PATRAN
and MARC would be an advantage. The Fellow will be involved in the overall
project co-ordination, and will be expected to write technical progress
reports, supervise research students, and generate publications. He/she must
therefore be self-motivated and possess excellent communication skills in
the English language.

RESEARCH ASSOCIATE: The candidate should possess a minimum of a Masters
degree in engineering or a closely related field, and significant experience
in the manufacture and testing of carbon-fibre composite materials.
Experience should include hand-layup, autoclaving, cutting, and drilling
procedures. Familiarity with techniques such as Scanning Electron Microscopy
would be an advantage. The RA will be responsible for the technical reports
relating to the University's experimental work, and the generation of
publications. He/she will be expected to register for a Ph.D.

Approximate salary ranges will be IR£20,000-25,000 (Euros 25,394-31,743)
p.a. for the Post-Doc and IR£15,000-IR£18,000 (Euros 19,046-22,855) for the
RA. Contract length is expected to be 2.5 years for the Post-Doc and 1.5
years for the RA (followed by 1.5 years further funding at a lower rate to
complete the Ph.D.).

The possibility exists that the experimentalist could be hired at the
POST-DOC rather than RA level.

All interested persons should forward a cover letter and complete curriculum
vitae, including a full list of publications and contact details of 3
referees to the address below.
