About the Opportunity
The Roux Institute in Portland, Maine is seeking a postdoctoral
fellow to join our team focused on developing the integration of
fundamental mechanics and physics-based principles with data-driven
approaches at the interface of disciplines. Successful candidates
will emphasize at least one of the following domains: mechanics and
physics-based models and data science in engineering in systems of
fluids, solids, motions, thermodynamics, biophysics, and
electrostatics. Areas of research will focus on data-driven methods
in broad areas of engineering including, but not limited to,
Engineering Design, Energy, Computer Engineering, Power
Electronics, Bioengineering, Ergonomic, Human Factors, Engineering
of Health Systems, Manufacturing, Robotics, Autonomy, Internet of
Things, and Cybersecurity. An effective research program will
