Graduate Research Position Available

Dr. Shim (assistant professor in CSEE) is currently seeking a motivated PhD student to work on research topics in the field of Mechanical Metamaterials, which are artificial materials engineered to have unconventional mechanical properties stemming from their microstructural geometry rather than from their chemical composition. 

No prior knowledge on the topic is required, but the candidate should have strong background in mathematics, solid mechanics, and finite element method.  In particular, preference will be given to students who are interested in designing and deploying experimental setups.

Recent research of Dr. Shim can be found in his website (http://www.buffalo.edu/~jshim), and interested applicants should send his/her resume to Dr. Shim (jshim@buffalo.edu).
