Searching suitable candidates for four possible positions:

 

  1. Research Fellow (Polymer): Strong polymer background and especially expertise in electrospinning and electron microscopy. Work to obtain 3D multi-hierarchy architectured materials based on coaxial fibers and characterizing their fracture behavior and impact resistance. Ph.D in Materials Science & Engineering or Polymer Science & Engineering, with strong theoretical knowledge in polymer science and characterization techniques. Will use electrospinning as an AM methodology.

 

  1. Research Fellow (Mechanics): Strong mechanics of materials background and especially in the mechanical testing of novel/nano/emerging materials. Ideal candidates would have experiences in advanced fracture mechanics (including impact resistance) and possess intimate and hands-on knowledge of microstructural origin of fracture behaviors. 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. Capacity to simulate materials using constitutive modeling methodologies would be especially an additional interests. Work to investigate the mechanics and fracture toughening mechanisms and deformation behaviors of 3D multi-hierarchy architectured materials based on fibers, and achieving materials with tunable impact resistance.

 

  1. Research Assistant: Strong mechanics of materials background and especially in the mechanical testing of novel/nano/emerging materials. 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. Work to investigate the mechanics and fracture toughening mechanisms and deformation behaviors of 3D multi-hierarchy architectured materials based on fibers, and achieving materials with tunable impact resistance. Singaporeans or PR’s preferred, but all will be considered.

 

  1. Research Engineer: Strong instrumentation and equipment-related background especially in the mechanical testing of novel/nano/emerging materials. Must have a MS degree in Materials Science & Engineering (or related disciplines in Engineering) with experiences in materials characterization techniques and hands-on skills with equipment. Work to create the equipment and testing methodology to enable the investigation of the mechanics and fracture toughening mechanisms and deformation behaviors of 3D multi-hierarchy architectured materials based on fibers, and achieving materials with tunable impact resistance. Singaporeans or PR’s preferred, but all will be considered.

 

Interested and qualified candidates – please write to Prof. Baji for Research Fellow (Polymer) position and Prof. Budiman for the other three positions.
Positions are expected to commence Jun 1, 2018, or shortly thereafter.
