Position: Postdoc in fluid-induced instabilities of multistable structures
Institution: Aarhus University
Location: Aarhus, Jutland, Denmark
Duties: Fluidic channels can be found in a variety of fields, from microfluidics to soft robotics, where they have the task to provide the robot with actuation and sensing capabilities. However, soft fluidic channels in robots are still in their infancy, relying on old technologies and simple geometries, with a strong limitation in terms of actuation, motion, function, and energy. In particular, the valves within the channels require external inputs to be controlled, thereby relying only on active control strategies, and their interaction with the fluid flow is not well understood, especially for large deformations
Requirements: You hold a PhD in engineering, mathematical modelling or similar. You like both experimental and theoretical/numerical modeling and scientific challenges excite you. You a have strong theoretical and/or experimental expertise in one (or both) of the following two areas; Elastic instabilities; Fluid-structure interactions at low Reynolds numbers
