The Vijay Lab in the Engineering Division, New York University Abu Dhabi, seeks to recruit a postdoctoral associate in Additive Manufacturing (AM) to work on the design, Finite Element Analysis (FEA), fabrication and characterization for projects related to the biomedical applications of Additive Manufacturing such as implants, prosthetics and tissue engineering scaffolds.
The successful applicant will drive a fascinating project on the emerging designs for AM such as lattice-based, Triply Periodic Minimal Surfaces (TPMS)-based, auxetic-based structures for biomedical applications of Additive Manufacturing such as implants, prosthetics and tissue engineering scaffolds. The PI's previous works has proved the versatility of these emerging designs in constituting a biomimetic architecture (i.e.) to mimic the native human tissue both in terms of structure and function. To get further insights, the candidate will be involved in developing several biomimetic designs (lattice, TPMS, auxetic structures) for specific biomedical applications including implants, prosthetics and tissue engineering scaffolds, finite element analysis of the designed structures to investigate the mechanical and fluidic (permeability) properties, fabrication of the structures using different additive manufacturing methods including Powder bed fusion, two-photon lithography, and Stereolithography, material characterization of the fabricated structures including scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, Raman spectra, FTIR, etc. and mechanical testing of the fabricated structures including tensile/compression testing, hardness testing and dynamic mechanical analyzer. There will be a lot of learning opportunities on the job including use of several software and additive manufacturing machines and basic biological assays. The candidate will work in a multidisciplinary environment consisting of PhD-level scientists, graduate students and undergraduate students and will interact with several scientists from other disciplines.
Applicants must have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering or related field. Excellent software and experimental skills relevant to the project (in particular design and FEA software, additive manufacturing and material characterization) are required.
The terms of employment include highly competitive salary, medical insurance, housing allowance, and educational subsidies for children as well as other benefits. Applications will be accepted immediately and candidates will be considered until the position is filled. For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, transcript of degree, and contact information of three references, all in PDF format. If you have any questions, please email Prof. Vijayavenkataraman Sanjairaj at firstname.lastname@example.org
New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, a multi-site, organically connected network encompassing key global cities and idea capitals. The network has three foundational degree-granting campuses: New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, complimented by a network of eleven research and study-away sites across five continents. Faculty and students will circulate within this global network in pursuit of common research interests and the promotion of cross-cultural and interdisciplinary solutions for problems both local and global.
Entering its tenth year, NYU Abu Dhabi has recruited a cohort of faculty who are at once distinguished in their research and teaching. Our students are drawn from around the world and surpass all traditional recruitment benchmarks, both US and global. NYU Abu Dhabi's highly selective liberal arts enterprise is complimented by an institute for advanced research, sponsoring cutting-edge projects across the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, and Engineering.
UAE Nationals are encouraged to apply.
