Two Ph.D positions immediately available in Mechanics of Materials starting from Fall, 2013

Two Ph.D. positions will be immediately available in the
Department of Mechanical Engineering at Temple University, Philadelphia, PA,
US. Both positions will start in Fall, 2013. The research program will focus on
mechanics of soft composite materials and its novel application in healthcare,
lightweight nano-composites for energy absorption, and renewable energy
harvesting, etc. The research will involve a combination of experimental
measurements, analytical modeling, and numerical simulation methods. We are
looking for self-motivated and creative candidates (preferable graduate
