Description and qualifications

A postdoctoral research associate position is available in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The postdoctoral researcher will work with Prof. Serife Tol on a research project related to vibration isolation and stabilization of space structures. The work involves development of new techniques and structural design concepts, and validation of measurements. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the development of novel metamaterial technologies and publications, and collaborate with the partners involved in the project. There will be opportunities to work in an innovative area and present work to sponsors and at conferences to a larger audience.

The ideal candidate will have experience in one or more of the following fields: structural dynamics, mechanical vibrations, wave propagation, metamaterials, phononic crystals, prototype design, experimental testing, and signal processing. Previous experience with vibration and wave propagation testing and COMSOL (or similar Finite Element) software is a plus. Strong publication record is expected and excellent work ethic is a must.
