Opening

A postdoc opening in experimental polymer materials (06/21)

There is an immediate opening of a postdoctoral researcher in the Mechanics of Soft Materials Lab in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The research will be on experimental mechanics of soft materials, and fabrication of soft machines. The successful candidate should have a PhD degree with expertise in experimental polymer materials. Experience on synthesis of hydrogels or elastomers, and characterization of soft materials is preferred. Interested applicants may send their CV with three references to Professor Lihua Jin (lihuajin@seas.ucla.edu).

A PhD opening in solid mechanics (06/21)

The group also has a PhD opening to be filled in 2021 fall, 2022 winter or 2022 fall. The successful candidate is expected to work on modeling, simulations, and experiments of soft materials. The ideal candidates will be highly motivated with a strong background in solid mechanics, and be fluent in spoken and written English. Interested applicants may send their CV with three references to Professor Lihua Jin (lihuajin@seas.ucla.edu).
