The Moini Lab in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Princeton University is searching for postdoctoral or more senior research candidates interested in studying the mechanics and additive manufacturing of architected cement-based materials and their interactions with hydrogels across multiscale pore structure. The goal is to engineer construction materials for higher water uptake and retention for urban infrastructure. The position involves working on other research projects in the areas of mechanics, bio-inspired and designs of architected materials, and automated robotic manufacturing processes. The research will be conducted under the direction of Professor Reza Moini and the successful candidate will collaborate with the Davidson and Datta labs at Princeton. This is a one-year appointment with possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and continued funding.We seek candidates with expertise in some of the following: Fracture mechanics (including experimental, analytical, and modeling approaches), cement and concrete (including calorimetry, imaging techniques of interest such optical microscopy, SEM and in-situ micro-CT), absorption, and permeability in porous media, and/or additive robotic manufacturing and materials processing. Prior experience and knowledge of fracture mechanics, cement chemistry, and/or prior experience with extrusion-based additive manufacturing (3D printing) tools, or hydrogels/polymer is not required but is a plus. Candidates must have a recent Ph.D. in a relevant field including material science, civil, or mechanical engineering and strong commitment to interdisciplinary research are encouraged to apply. Applicants should apply athttps://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/27364 and include a CV (including a list of publications), research interest statement (a discussion of past research and expertise), and contact information for three references. Selected candidate will have the opportunity to work in the state-of-the-art materials characterization and additive manufacturing laboratories, and to work in collaborative, supportive and inclusive interdisciplinary research environment.This position is subject to the University's background check policy.Princeton University is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. We actively seek students, faculty, and staff of exceptional ability and promise who share in our commitment to excellence in teaching and scholarship, and who will bring a diversity of viewpoints and cultures.
