Currently Available Positions

Multiple Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) Positions Available

Multiple GRA positions for PhD track candidates are available in the areas of mechanics of materials, polymer additive manufacturing, polymer recycling. Interested candidate are encouraged to apply to the ME school directly.

Postdoc Position 1: Postdoc research associate in polymer science and engineering

A postdoc position in polymer science and engineering is available in Dr. Qi’s Mechanics of Soft Active Materials and 3D Printing in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. This postdoc will work on developing novel recycling polymers and corresponding characterization methods. This postdoc will also explore novel applications of these polymers in areas such as 3D printing, surface coating, sealing, and composites self-healing. The candidate should have a doctoral degree in polymer science and engineering, or chemical engineering, or material science and engineering with a focus on developing novel polymers and characterizing these polymers. Experience in modeling is a plus but is not required. The candidate should also demonstrate a strong record of publications, fluency in English communication and English writing. The candidate should be willing to work in a large interdisciplinary team and collaborate with other team members.

The minimum duration for this position is two-years and will be extended based on the performance. Interested candidate can email Prof. Qi directly at qih@me.gatech.edu. Please include a CV and a research statement in the email.

Postdoc position 2: Postdoc research associate in multiphysics modeling of polymer 3D printing

A postdoc position in multiphysics modeling of polymer 3D printing is available in Dr. Qi’s Mechanics of Soft Active Materials and 3D Printing in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. This postdoc will work on developing finite element based multiphysics models of the 3D printing process of polymers and incorporating such models in to design framework. The 3D printing methods include digit light processing (DLP), direct ink write (DIW), and hybrid. This postdoc will also provide support to the NSF IUCRC center by helping other teams’ work on 3D printing and helping organize the IAB meetings. The candidate should have a doctoral degree in Solid Mechanics with a focus on nonlinear constitutive modeling and should be familiar with polymer physics and additive manufacturing. The candidate should demonstrate a strong record of publications, fluency in English communication and English writing and should be willing to work in a large interdisciplinary team and collaborate with other team members.

The minimum duration for this position is two-years and will be extended based on the performance. Interested candidate can email Prof. Qi directly at qih@me.gatech.edu. Please include a CV and a research statement in the email.
