PhD and Postdoc positions in nonlinear structural mechanics

I am seeking enthusiastic students and recent graduates to join my group at the University of Missouri - Columbia to work on the nonlinear structural mechanics of folded and 3D printed materials such as origami tessellations and lattices. Positions are available at the level of Graduate Research Assistants and Postdoctoral Fellows. Candidates with background in nonlinear finite element analysis are particularly encouraged to apply.

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

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.

PhD positions on mechanics of morphing solids and shells at the University of Missouri, Columbia

The positions: I am looking to support two PhD students to work with me towards a mechanical understanding of morphing structures such as origami tessellations and lattice materials and metamaterials. By "understanding" I mean anything relevant to the theoretical and numerical modeling of these structures, in static and dynamic regimes, within the context of elasticity whether linearized or not as well as the fabrication and testing of toy models necessary to assess that "understanding".
