Dr. Feifei Fan’s group has fully funded Ph.D. openings in solid mechanics and mechanical behavior of materials:
- Atomistic simulations of deformation and failure mechanisms. Experience in molecular dynamics (tools include but not limited to LAMMPS and OVITO) is highly preferred.
- Coarse-grained modeling of micromechanics. Experience in finite element analysis (tools include but not limited to ABAQUS and MOOSE) is highly preferred.
- Design, fabrication, and testing of architected materials. Experience in 3D printing, digital image correlation, and mechanical testing is highly preferred.
Minimum requirements for admission:
- Undergraduate GPA of 2.5
- TOEFL score of 80 or equivalent IELTS (For students who have completed a B.S. or M.S. at an English-speaking university, this requirement is waived.)
- GRE (no minimum requirement)
A degree of M.S. is highly preferred.
Interested applicants may contact: Dr. Fan <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
