Postdoc opening in active acoustic metamaterials at University of Missouri

Guoliang Huang's picture

Structured Materials & Dynamics Laboratory ( at University of Missouri develops innovative solutions for Solid Mechanics and Structured Materials, in particular the new frontiers of structural dynamics, wave propagation, micromechanics, topological and quantum mechanics, smart materials and dynamical behaviours of multi-functional materials, both man-made and formed naturally, and understanding relationship between microstructures and material macroscopic properties.

We seek exceptional postdoc scientists to work closely with our research group on exciting research in architecture materials, topological metamaterials, active elastic metamaterials embedded with sensing, actuating and control for manipulating mechanical wave propagation, mechanical energy and topological applications. The candidate should also be self-motivated, independent and willing to work in a multidisciplinary team. This position is immediately available for one year with competitive salary and could be renewed for the multiple years.


Essential Duties:

She/he will:

  • Modeling and characterization of active metamaterials for advance of active elasticity and novel properties
  • Participate in leading-edge research involving multi-physical dynamic simulation and control theory of active metamaterials and topological metamaterials or metastructures for elastic/acoustic wave steering and control.
  • Study reconfigurable acoustic metamaterials for noise control and mitigation.
  • Develop and modeling of topological mechanical metamaterials and topological mechanics.


Required qualifications include:

PhD in an area related to structure dynamics, acoustic/elastic metamaterials, electric circuits or a related field;

Solid background of solid mechanics, piezoelectric materials, active control, multiscale modeling;

Expertise in ANSYS, COMSOL and other numerical simulations;

Experimental experience is a plus.



Review of applications will begin immediately until the positions are filled. Interested individuals should send a detailed resume with names, addresses, and telephone numbers of at least three reference to Prof. Guoliang Huang @


University of Missouri:

The University of Missouri is a Tier I research institution and one of only 60 public and private U.S. universities invited to membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities. MU has a world renowned Veterinary Medicine College on the same campus as an innovative School of Medicine and teaching hospital, the College of Business, School of Nursing, School of Public Affairs, and the College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources. The university was founded in 1839 in Columbia as the first public university west of the Mississippi River. Located midway between St. Louis and Kansas City, Columbia is a vibrant small city consistently ranked among the top places to live in the United States.
