Erland M. Schulson
George Austin Colligan Distinguished Professor of Engineering
Erland M. Schulson received his B.A.Sc. (Honours, 1964) and his Ph.D. (1968) in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of British Columbia. He has been a visiting senior research fellow at Oxford University (1968-'69), a research officer in materials science at Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories (1969-'78), a visiting research fellow at the General Electric Corporate Research and Development Center (1988), a visiting professor at the University of Grenoble (1989), and a Fulbright Foreign Scholar at CNRS's Laboratoire de Glaciologie et Geophysique de l'Environnement (1999). In 1978 he joined the faculty of the Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College, and is currently serving as Chair, Engineering Sciences. Prof. Schulson is the (first) George Austin Colligan Distinguished Professor of Engineering at Dartmouth. Dr. Schulson was elected Fellow of ASM International and of TMS, and is a member of the American Geophysical Union and the International Glaciological Society. Schulson founded the Ice Research Laboratory at Dartmouth in 1983, and since then has served as its director. He teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in materials science, mechanical behavior of solids and phase transformations, and continues to pursue research on the relationship between the structure and mechanical behavior of metals and ice. Prof. Schulson consults for industry and government. He has lectured widely in this country and abroad, has directed over 40 graduate theses, has authored over 270 papers on physical/mechanical metallurgy and on ice mechanics, and holds or shares four patents relating to zirconium alloys and electron beam apparatus. He and P. Duval are authors of "Creep and Fracture of Ice" (Schulson and Duval, Cambridge Univ. Press, 2009). He is listed on ISIHighlyCited.com.
