Fellowships for Outstanding Post-doctoral Fellows from China and India
Fellowships for outstanding post-doctoral fellows from China and India are available at the Laboratory for Mechanics of Soft Materials, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. The fellowship funding period will begin in October 2015. The candidate shall be a citizen of China or India. Candidates who have Indian or Chinese citizenships and have completed their doctoral degrees in a leading institution outside of China or India are also eligible to apply for a fellowship. Applicants must hold a PhD degree in Mechanical/Aerospace/Material Engineering or related field. We seek excellent candidates with strong knowledge in non-linear elasticity, finite element simulation, and/or strong experimental background. We are looking for highly motivated candidates with strong publication records, and with an interest in one of the Lab research areas: mechanics of soft composites and biological tissues, active materials (such as electroactive polymers and magnetorheological elastomers), bioinspired materials, acoustic metamaterials, and 3D printing.
Interested candidates should e-mail Dr. Stephan Rudykh (firstname.lastname@example.org) a single pdf containing
1. CV including diplomas (Bachelors, Masters, PhD).
2. An abstract of the PhD dissertation (up to 2 pages).
