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

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.
