Career opportunities for Research Assistant/Engineer and Postdoctoral Fellow in the following areas !

1)  Mechanics of materials and fracture mechanics in the Materials with Tunable Impact Resistance via Integrated Additive Manufacturing Methodologies
Strong mechanics of materials background and especially in the mechanical testing of novel/nano/emerging materials.

For PostDoctoral Fellow: Must have a Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering (or closely related fields, such as Solid Mechanics, or Mechanics of Materials) and a strong theoretical knowledge of solid mechanics and damage dissipation mechanisms in novel/nano/emerging materials.

For RA/RE. Must have a MS degree in Materials Science & Engineering (or closely related disciplines such as Mechanical Engineering or Physics) and a strong theoretical knowledge of solid mechanics and damage dissipation mechanisms in novel/nano/emerging materials.
