The Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering at the University of Michigan is looking for a US-citizen postdoc or research scientist with skill(s) in structural acoustics & vibrations, underwater acoustics, or hydroacoustics, but will also consider anyone at or above the post-doctoral level who has a willingness to learn about these topics.
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan
Duration: 1–3 years
Start date: Immediate
A post-doctoral-level or higher scientist or engineer is sought for basic research studies into
acoustics and hydrodynamics of enduring interest to the US Navy. The successful applicant will
have or be willing to develop a mixture of experimental, computational, and analytical skills; a
desire to work with and assist undergraduate and graduate students; and a sincere interest in
performing research that leads to publications in top journals. Preferred applicants will have
expertise in one or more of the following areas (and a willingness to learn about the others):
array signal processing, acoustic wave propagation, structural wave propagation, wall-bounded
turbulence, and machine learning. The position is supported by US Government grants and
contracts, and University of Michigan resources.
US citizenship is required. Eligible applicants will have completed their Ph.D. in physics, math,
acoustics, engineering, or another relevant field. Underwater acoustics or signal processing
experience is preferred, but all candidates are encouraged to reach out.

The Center for the Assessment of Tobacco Regulations (CAsToR) aims to provide evidence-based and expert-informed modeling of the behavioral and public health impacts of tobacco regulations. Funded through the TCORS 2.0 program, this multi-institutional Center includes experts in the field of tobacco regulatory science and modeling from the University of Michigan, Georgetown University, Yale University, University California San Francisco, and University of Minnesota.
CAsToR is looking to hire up to two temporary research assistants in the University of Michigan School of Public Health Epidemiology Department, one who will primarily work on a nicotine reduction agent-based model and another who will support a pilot project using machine learning techniques to look at smoking status transitions. The ideal candidates are current graduate students (masters or doctoral level).
- Temporary Part Time Position (Research Assistant II)
- Hours: Up to 20 hours per week, remote preferred
- Pay Rate: $15-28 dependent upon experience
The Center for the Assessment of Tobacco Regulations (CAsToR) is pleased to once again announce the availability of scholarships for a short course on tobacco simulation modeling (EPID 730) to be offered during the University of Michigan Summer Session in Epidemiology (SSE) Program in 2022. Scholarships are also available for Complex Systems Modeling for Public Health Research (EPID 793), in conjunction with EPID 730 scholarships.
EPID 730 will be offered as an on-line course and will provide an introductory overview of computational modeling techniques with examples in Tobacco Regulatory Science, discussions of best practices, and hands-on lab experience in which students will develop their own simulation models. At the completion of the course, students will be able to explain the contributions of simulation modeling in Tobacco Regulatory Science, and describe advantages and disadvantages of common modeling approaches. Students will explore how to incorporate simulation modeling into their own Tobacco Regulatory Science research and participate in interdisciplinary teams that use modeling techniques.
The deadline to apply is April 6th, 2022, and applicants are asked to wait to apply to the SSE program until after receiving notification of the scholarship funding decision in late April. Please see the flyer for more information and a link to the application.
