We are looking for PhD students in the Mechanical Engineering or Biological Design Program at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. The currently available collaborative projects are funded by the Office of Naval Research with emphases on
"Dynamic behavior of biological systems for blunt injury and wound healing mechanisms".
The position will start from Spring 2021. During these projects, the candidates will work with leading biologists, material scientists, electrical and mechanical engineers at both ASU as well as US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) to overcome critical barriers in the combined theoretical and experimental investigations of complex biological systems at different length scales from subcellular characterization to cell damage at cell population levels.
Applications will be immediately reviewed until the positions are filled. Interested candidates should submit the items listed below to Prof. Wonmo Kang (firstname.lastname@example.org):
1. A detailed CV including a list of publications
2. A cover letter with a short description of their research experience and interests
3. The names and email addresses of at least three references
The successful candidates will enjoy additional opportunities in Prof. Kang’s lab including (1) opportunities to work at DoD labs, (2) hands-on experience with cutting-edge facilities, and (3) local attractions (including weather) in Phoenix, AZ. For domestic Ph.D. students, prestigious Dean’s Fellowship will be considered. The fellowship provides tuition, health insurance and $30,000 of annual support (https://graduate.engineering.asu.edu/fellowships/deans-fellowship/).
