Funded PhD positions in brain finite element modeling and material modeling within the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at UTSA

Two PhD positions are available within the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio for Summer/Fall 2022 or Spring 2023 in the area of impact biomechanics research focused on computational modeling, traumatic brain injury and injury protection technologies.

The overall goals of these positions, are to 1) integrate computational and experimental techniques to unfold mechanisms underlying traumatic brain injury (TBI) and 2) develop new generation of injury protection devices.

- Position #1: The PhD student will be working as part of a team working in the development of multi-scale computational modeling of the brain. Applicants are sought who possess solid knowledge of finite element modeling, continuum constitutive modeling, machine learning, and neuroimage processing. Experience in working with FE software such as LS-DYNA and programming languages such as MATLAB is required.

- Position #2: The PhD student will be working as part of a team exploring various aspects of both impact biomechanics and head protection design. Experience in impact mechanics, lattice structure design, 3D printing, finite element modeling and strong knowledge in mechanical and material engineering are highly desired. Experience in working with SolidWorks, FE software and programming languages such as MATLAB is required.

Successful applicants will have a B.S. or M.S. degree in either Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Material Science, or a related engineering field.

Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae, transcripts along with the contact information of three references that could be contacted.
