Dr. Jiang’s research interests and activities cover a wide range in solid and applied mechanics. Her expertise is in establishing mechanics and physics models for challenging problems related to materials behavior through theoretical modeling and numerical simulations. Some specific research topics are:
NEW! Position is available for a postdoctoral fellow to carry out an industry sponsored project on composite modeling in Prof. Liying Jiang’s lab at the Mechanical and Materials Engineering Department of the University of Western Ontario in Canada. The contract is initiated for one year, with possible extension if work progresses satisfactorily. The research will focus on investigating the microstructure effects upon the failure modes of injection molded composites.
The candidates must have a PhD degree in a field of study related to the research project. Ideal candidates should have a solid background and previous work experience in solid mechanics, composites, micromechanics modeling, failure and fracture, and numerical simulations with ABAQUS/ANSYS. Interested candidates are encouraged to send your CV with a list of three referees to Prof. Jiang directly.
Positions Available: Energetic and self-motivated graduate students interested in my research areas are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to students with Solid Mechanics background. Please send your CV with your transcripts to me by email.
