One Ph.D. position in mechanics of materials for Fall, 2014

Jie. Yin's picture

One Ph.D. position will be available in the Applied Mechanics of Materials group of Mechanical Engineering Department at
Temple University, Philadelphia, PA, USA. The position will start in the coming Fall, 2014.
The research program will focus on mechanics of soft composite materials and structures as well as
their novel applications in micro/nano-fabrication, anti-biofilm, energy absorption/harvesting, etc. In
particular, it will focus on harnessing buckling instabilities of hybrid soft and hard materials and
periodic structures for dynamically tailoring mechanical, adhesive, acoustic, and optical functions of
the materials and structures. The research will involve a combination of experimental measurements,
analytical modeling, and numerical simulation methods (FEM and MD etc).

Candidates with experimental or modeling background and interests in solid mechanics, mechanical
engineering, materials science, and bio-engineering are highly encouraged to apply. For international applicants, TOEFL is
required. GRE could be waived if you have demonstrated excellence in research or other aspects.

If interested, please send your resume or CV to Dr. Jie Yin at
