Moazen to lead Human Science Frontier Program project to study osteoderms
"We do not know what drives the extraordinary diversity of osteoderms in lizards, how it is controlled, or how it originated."Read more
This studentship provides an opportunity for an individual of any nationality to join a 3-year study program in UCL’s Department of Mechanical Engineering through application to a UCL Overseas Research Scholarship and/or the UCL China Scholarships Council Research Scholarships.
The focus of this project is to develop advanced lattice materials, or metamaterials, with high fracture toughness by design and optimisation in three length scales: microstructural (material properties), mesostructural (morphology of periodic structure), and macrostructural (component-scale).
Applicants should have a background in Mechanical/Structural/Materials Engineering, or an equivalent discipline with a high technical content, of any nationality. Aptitude for computational modelling work is essential. Applicants should be from a top-ranked university, and expected to graduate at the top of their cohort. A research record of accomplishment, demonstrated by publication(s), will greatly enhance the chances of success.
