One Ph.D. opening in Mechanics of Materials for 2017 Fall
One Ph.D. position will be available in the Applied Mechanics of Materials Lab of Mechanical Engineering Department at Temple University, Philadelphia, PA, USA. The position will start in the coming Fall 2017.
The research program will focus on mechanics of soft metamaterials, as well as their applications in programmable matter and soft robotics. The research will involve a combination of experiments (3D printing, mechanical testing, materials synthesis, and fabrication etc), analytical modeling, and numerical simulation methods (mainly finite element method).
Candidates with high self-motivation, experimental or modeling background and interests in solid mechanics, mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering are highly encouraged to apply. Minimum GPA requirement is 3.0/4.0. For international applicants, TOEFL or IELTS is required (minimum 79 on the internet-based TOEFL or a 6.5 on the academic version of IELTS). GRE is also required (Quantitative – 151 minimum). Applicants with master degree are preferred but not required.
If interested, please send your resume or CV including your GPA, TOEFL or IELTS, and GRE score to Dr. Jie Yin at email@example.com.
