PhD position in Theoretical & Experimental Mechanics of High Performance (bio)Materials

Dargazany's picture

 

Our Group of High Performance Materials in Enviormental & Civil Engineering Department at Michigan State University has two openings for PhD positions to work on Multiscale Modeling or Experimental Charachterization of Soft Materials starting Fall 2019.

 

One research direction is modeling of bio-materials, with combined theoretical and experimental efforts. Highly Stretchable/Flexible gels combines the properties of the water based gels as a scaffold for tissue regenration and mechanical properties of a polymer based composites, and thus do have a very broad biological applications. Examples range from surgical and diagnostic layers that layed over  the human skin to accelerate the  healing procedure to replacement tissues. 

 

 Another one is  experimental mechanics of nano-composites, to study the aging and degradation of soft-materials in differnt enviormental conditions.  This project will utilize both chemical and mechanical methods to reveal the fundamental mechanics and physics of materials exposed to aging. 

 

 Required qualifications for the positions are as follow

 

1. A M.Sc. or equivalent degree  in Mechanics, Civil,  or related engineering disciplines.

 

2. For Modeling :strong background in Solid & Computational Mechanics; Constitutive Modeling, Finite element.

 For Experiment: background in working in Lab enviorment, Previous knowledge with olymeric materials

 

3. English Proficiency (TOEFL, GRE) 

 

Being present in USA is a plus.

 

Interested candidates are encouraged to send a cover letter, CV,  representative publications (if any) and names and contact information of  the references to:

 

Dr. Roozbeh Dargazany (roozbeh at msu .edu)
