PhD Position at McGill University in Architected Mechanical Metamaterials

Hamid.Akbarzadeh's picture

One PhD position is available for Fall 2022 in Advanced Multifunctional and Multiphysics Metamaterials Lab (AM3L) in the Department of Bioresource Engineering of McGill University. The research topic is on the area of Architected Mechanical Metamaterials. Theoretical and computational multiscale modelling along with 3D printing and experimental characterization will be conducted for nonlinear and multiphysics analysis of rationally-designed architected 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, Instability analysis, Cellular solids, and Architected metamaterials.

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

3. Experience on Metamaterials design, Multiscale homogenization, Buckling/Post-buckling analysis, Plasticity, or Machine learning is an asset.

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

5. Good publication records in well-respected journals.

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 the aforementioned topics), CV, and two representative publications (if available) to Dr. Hamid Akbarzadeh (


Short-listed candidates might be asked to provide further information. Selected applicants are recommended to submit their complete application to the Bioresource Engineering Department of McGill University by March 15.
