PhD Position at McGill University in Advanced Nonlinear Materials

Hamid.Akbarzadeh's picture

One PhD position is available for Fall 2018 in the Advanced Multifunctional and Multiphysics Metamaterials Lab (AM3L) in the Bioresource Engineering Department of McGill University. The research is on the field of  multiscale mechanics of Advanced Nonlinear Architected Materials. Theoretical, computational, and experimental (3D printing and characterization) studies will be conducted for multiscale multiphysics analysis of architected cellular materials. The candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Hamid Akbarzadeh at McGill University.


Required qualifications for the position are:

1. Strong background on Advanced mechanics of materials, Computational multiscale mechanics, Nonlinear mechanics, Instability analysis, Cellular solids, and Architected composites.

2. Proficiency in nonlinear finite element analysis and using commercial finite element packages such as ANSYS/ABAQUS and COMSOL is a must.

3. Experience with Multiscale homogenization techniques and Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation is asset.

4. Excellent programing skills using MATLAB and Python/C.

5. Good publication records.

6. Proficiency in English and high undergraduate and graduate GPA for admission to McGill University.


Interested candidates should send their Cover letter (emphasizing on their prior experience on aforementioned topics), CV, and two representative publications to Dr. Hamid Akbarzadeh (


Potential candidates might be asked to provide further information. International students should submit their complete application to Bioresource Engineering Department of McGill University till January 15.
