The Kang Group is looking for outstanding candidates to join the group. We have openings as below.
Due to the large volume of applications received, we will contact only those selected for interviews. Thank you for your understanding.

Postdoctoral Fellow

One postdoctoral fellow position is expected to be available from January 2017 in the area of bioinspired materials and mechanical systems with focus on experimental aspects. Interested individuals should have a Ph.D. in related disciplines. We are looking for a person with strong motivation, publication record, analytical and interpersonal skills and integrity with expertise in the area of mechanics of materials and structures, 3D printing, smart materials and systems, architected materials, macro/micro/nanofabrications. Previous experience with 3D printing and finite element methods (solid/structure mechanics, fluid-structure interactions) are required.

The term of the appointment is one year with possible renewal.
If interested, please send a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with contact information of 3 references, 2-3 representative publications and 1-2 page research plan to Prof. Kang by e-mail for consideration.

Ph.D. Students

One to two research assistant positions for Ph.D. students in the area of experimental mechanics of 3D printed materials and structures are available. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of our research, students with backgrounds in all disciplines of engineering and science including mechanical engineering, materials science & engineering, biomedical engineering, civil engineering, chemical and biomolecular engineering, electrical & computer engineering and physics are strongly encouraged to apply.

The ideal candidates are highly motivated and creative individuals with solid foundations in mechanics, 3D printing of polymers, finite element method (solid/structure mechanics, fluid-structure interactions), and strong communication/interpersonal skills.

Interested students should get admission from graduate programs at Johns Hopkins University. A highly qualified incoming mechanical engineering Ph.D. student can be considered for the Department of Mechanical Engineering Fellowship.

If interested, please send a curriculum vitae with 1-2 references and a brief description of research interest to Prof. Kang by e-mail for consideration.

Master Students

A couple of openings for M.S.E. students in the area of experimental bioinspired materials and mechanical systems are available from September 2016. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of our research, students with backgrounds in all disciplines of engineering and science including mechanical engineering, materials science & engineering, civil engineering, biomedical engineering, electrical & computer engineering and physics are strongly encouraged to apply. Interested students should get admission from graduate programs at Johns Hopkins University.

If interested, please send a curriculum vitae with 1-2 references & a brief description of research interest to Prof. Kang by e-mail for consideration and apply for graduate admission at the Johns Hopkins University. The following link shows the instructions for graduate admission.
