Fully Funded PhD Position on Mechanical Metamaterials at the University of Missouri, Columbia

nassarh's picture

The position: I am looking to support a PhD student to work with me towards the design, modeling, fabrication and testing of mechanical metamaterials with emphasis on morphing structures such as origami tessellations and lattice materials. The study will focus on deriving and validating novel stress-strain relationships that transcend the standard framework of Hook's law. Sought applications will be in the domains of (i) self-deploying space structures; (ii) soft robotics; and (iii) "invisibility" cloaks.

The musts: are (1) a strong sense of independence and initiative and (2) good writing skills. Applicants with a strong mathematical background and/or numerical analysis skills are particularly encouraged to apply; fabrication and testing experience is a plus.

The University of Missouri, Columbia (MU) just won a Nobel in Chemistry. MU is a top-tier R1 institution. It is a very rich and diverse place and Columbia is a nice so-far small yet rapidly growing town built around the University.

To apply, contact me, Hussein Nassar, by sending an email to "nassarh at missouri.edu". Include therein relevant info about yourself.

Position remains open until filled.
