We are seeking a PhD student to work in a funded graduate research assistant (GRA) position at the University of Colorado Boulder (CUBoulder). The GRA will perform experimental and theoretical mechanics research on the thermomechanical behavior of 1) bonded granular materials and 2) porous cellular materials with the scope of energy and defense applications. Candidates should have a background in continuum mechanics and experimental solid mechanics. The GRA will work in a team of other graduate students and in close collaboration with national laboratory scientists.

For more information, please contact Dr. Yida Zhang via For those who are interested in applying, please send an email with subject line “Application for MSE/ES GRA PhD Position”. The email must include a curriculum vitae/resume, GRE scores, and academic transcripts. Review of applications will begin immediately.
