401 North Grant Street
I am seeking highly motivated graduate students interested in fatigue and fracture modeling, spectral fatigue and solid mechanics. The graduate positions are intended to be funded at the Ph.D. level but I will consider exceptional M.Sc. candidates. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter that includes a brief summary of their research experience and interests, CV, and unofficial transcripts to Dr. Ayhan Ince (firstname.lastname@example.org).
