The Stephen Timoshenko Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow will be given the opportunity to pursue independent research in the general area of solid mechanics, as well as to contribute to ongoing research in the Mechanics and Computation Group. Research activities should be in the field of solid mechanics interpreted broadly. The candidate should be aligned with interests in the group, which include additive manufacturing, micro- and nano-mechanics, and bio-mechanics, with an interest in machine learning as it applies to the field of computational mechanics. Candidates will be given opportunities to develop their teaching experience by designing and teaching a class in the mechanics curriculum. This position might be of particular interest to candidates who are seeking an academic career.

Candidates are expected to show outstanding promise in research, as well as strong interest and ability in teaching.
