Postdoc in mechanics of woven and fiber-based materials at the University of Pittsburgh

iasigal's picture

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc to join our team to study the mechanics of woven or fiber-based materials. Applicants should have expertise in mechanics of materials with long fibers. These can be artificial, like textiles and fabrics, or natural, like soft tissues including tendon or heat valves.  Experience in multi-scale methods is advantageous.  Experimental or computational are both welcome.

Experience with biological samples or soft tissues is preferred but not required. Experience in cytoskeletal fiber mechanics would be outstanding.

Experience in composites or solid mechanics is not sufficient to get the position.

Experience in ophthalmology or vision sciences is not required.

We do require a solid publication record and evidence of strong writing and presentation skills will be an advantage.

The postdoc will have the opportunity to develop his/her own scientific ideas in the rich environment of the University of Pittsburgh, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the McGowan institute for Regenerative Medicine and the Fox center for vision restoration.

To apply, send to Ian A. Sigal (

-          CV.

-          Two representative publications.

Applications will be evaluated as they are received. Applications missing either document will not be evaluated. More info on the Laboratory of Ocular Biomechanics at

The University of Pittsburgh is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer.
