Openings for PhD students and PostDoctoral fellows at NYU-Poly
The Dynamical Systems Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University is seeking to recruit multiple Post-Doctoral fellows and Ph.D. students in fluid-structure interactions, mechanics of composite materials, and vibrations.
Responsibilities of Post-Doctoral fellows include: i) perform state-of-the-art research in either theoretical mechanics; ii) develop new research plans and co-author research proposals; ii) supervise and/or train undergraduate or graduate students; iv) author professional presentations, professional reports, and publications; and v) present research at professional conferences. Post-Doctoral candidates are xpected to have i) a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering or closely related fields; ii) demonstrated ability to conduct riginal research as evidenced by high-quality journal publications; iii) outstanding English language oral and written communication skills; iv) a strong work ethic with the ability to work independently as well as in a research group; and vi) evidence of good project/laboratory management skills. Compensation includes a competitive stipend based on the candidate’s experience.
Ph.D. students will also address specific problems within the areas of theoretical mechanics. Ph.D. student candidates are expected to have a solid research experience in Mechanical Engineering and have a M.S. or equivalent degree in Engineering, Mathematics, or Physics. Compensation includes full tuition coverage and a competitive stipend.
Candidates are encouraged to apply via email to Dr. M. Porfiri (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a one page statement of past research experience, and a list of two/three referees.
