Multiple Positions on Robotic Metamaterials and Flexible Electronics at Duke University

Xiaoyue Ni's picture

My lab is looking for strongly motivated Ph.D. students and Postdocs to join our group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science at Duke University. We conduct research on human-centered materials intelligence through a combination of flexible electronics, robotic metamaterials, and artificial intelligence. Two positions are available immediately. 


Position 1: The project will focus on the design, fabrication, and testing of robotic mechanical metamaterials.

Position 2: The research will aim to create new classes of epidermal electronics for precision measurement of body mechanics and acoustics. The candidate is expected to collaborate with the school of medicine at Duke University to explore novel clinical applications.


For both positions, the ideal candidates will have an experimental background in materials science, mechanics, physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, etc., with experience in one or more of the following areas: microfabrication, smart materials, sensors.


If interested, please email Dr. Xiaoyue Ni ( with your CV to discuss potential opportunities. Students can apply through Duke MEMS and mention my name. The deadline is 12/15/2022.
