Mechanics of Advanced Materials

PhD Position in the group of Mechanics of Advanced Materials

The properties of artificial materials can be designed to exhibit extraordinary properties by cleverly engineering their composition. Our group was granted the European Commission for Research (ERC) consolidators (CoG) grant in order to develop metamaterials that manipulate elastic waves, with potential applications such as vibration isolation, energy harvesting, cloaking and more. The ERC CoG grant is intended to support pioneering ideas of researchers who have shown the ability to conduct creative, ground-breaking research.

We seek motivated and talented PhD students (postdoc positions are also available) to work on the theoretical, numerical and experimental tasks of the project. Suitable candidates should submit their application, which includes a CV, contact details of two referees and a short motivation letter to Prof. Gal Shmuel at meshmuel@technion.ac.il. Please include in the subject line of the email the reference CoG-EXCEPTIONAL. These positions are fully funded.

Our group is a part of the faculty of mechanical engineering, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, located along the Mediterranean in Haifa, Israel, ranked in top 100 universities, houses 3 Nobel laureates, and is a world leader in scientific research and technology development. Technion is recognized as the engine of Israel’s “start-up nation”, as Technion graduates lead 59 of the 121 Israeli companies listed on NASDAQ.

The candidates should have background in mechanics/physics.
