Positions Available: Energetic and self-motivated graduate students interested in my research areas are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to students with Solid Mechanics background. Please send your CV directly to me by email.

NEW! Position is available (starting from January 2014) for a postdoctoral fellow to carry out an industry sponsored project on carbon fiber composite modeling. The contract is initiated for one year, with possible extension if work progresses satisfactorily. The research will focus on (1) micromechanics modeling of mechanical behavior of carbon fiber composites; (2) homogenization techniques and constitutive model development for vibration, strength and impact simulations of carbon fiber composites.

The candidates must have a PhD degree in a field of study related to the research project. Ideal candidates should have a solid background and previous work experience in solid mechanics, composites, micromechanics modeling, and numerical simulations with ABAQUS/ANSYS. Interested candidates are encouraged to send your CV with a list of three referees to Prof. Jiang directly via email.
