A postdoc position in the area of mechanics of metamaterials is available in the group of Prof. Stefano Gonella ( at the University of Minnesota. This exciting opportunity is in the context of a National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded interdisciplinary project whose main objective is to investigate the behavior of innovative topological metamaterials with asymmetric wave transport capabilities.

The ideal candidate is a highly motivated and creative individual with a PhD in engineering, physics, math or materials science and strong background in mechanics, modeling or materials physics. Direct experience with project-specific concepts of topology and non-symmetric wave propagation are desirable, although not strictly required. The candidate will be directly involved in both the theoretical/computational and experimental aspects of the project and will play a central role in shaping the direction of the project.

Applicants must submit a detailed resume, indicating education, experience and qualifications, and the names and contact of references. Applications and questions should be sent to Prof. Stefano Gonella at Qualified candidates will be contacted to schedule a follow-up phone/Skype interview. A tentative start in January 2018 is anticipated, although this date could be slightly moved back or forward as needed.
