Open Positions

Two PhD positions are available as of November 8, 2016. 

  • Two fully funded Ph.D. positions are available. We seek candidates with strong knowledge in nonlinear elasticity, finite element simulation, and/or strong experimental background. We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong interest in one of the Lab research areas: mechanics of composites, active materials (such as electroactive polymers and magnetorheological elastomers), bioinspired materials, 3D printing, acoustic metamaterials, and materials for energy storage.  Requirements: the candidate should have (or about to earn) a Master degree in engineering (mechanical, aerospace, material) or closely related field. The evaluation will start immediately (upon receiving the application) and the position will remain open until filled. 
  •  A fully funded Master position is available. Requirements: a Bachelor degree in engineering (mechanical, aerospace, material) or closely related field; professional English (for international applicants).
  • One postdoctoral position is available immediately under the Israel Science Foundation supported project (2015-2019) on modeling of soft micro-structured materials. Applicants must hold a PhD degree in the area of Solid Mechanics / Mechanics of Materials. Candidates with solid knowledge in non-linear elasticity and mechanics of soft materials are especially encouraged to apply.

  To apply e-mail Dr. Stephan Rudykh ( a single pdf containing
1. CV/Resume and contact information of at least 2 references (3 for postdoctoral candidates)
2. Copy of transcripts, in English (and original language)
