Interdisciplinary Engineering/Science Postdoctoral Fellow

About Northeastern:
Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and the recognized leader in experience-driven lifelong learning. Our world-renowned experiential approach empowers our students, faculty, alumni, and partners to create impact far beyond the confines of discipline, degree, and campus.

Our locations—in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; London; Portland, Maine; San Francisco; Seattle; Silicon Valley; Toronto; Vancouver; and the Massachusetts communities of Burlington and Nahant—are nodes in our growing global university system. Through this network, we expand opportunities for flexible, student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focused research.

Northeastern's comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs— in a variety of on-campus and online formats—lead to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Among these, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degrees designed to prepare students for purposeful lives and careers.

About the Opportunity:
We seek 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.

Responsibilities:
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 execute use-inspired discovery with an entrepreneurial mindset that develops science and solutions that matter to society and impact the Maine economy.

Postdocs will receive formal and structured mentoring on topics including mentor/mentee research relationship, technology transfer, and proposal development.

This fellow will have opportunities to collaborate on group on existing projects and the development of new opportunities with Roux Industry Partners and federal grant opportunities. There will are also opportunities to mentor junior team members and provide educational support across the Roux Institute. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in applied engineering and science with an entrepreneurial mindset or a willingness to learn about use inspired research. As an individual contributor to the visualization research mission, the Postdoctoral Fellow will be responsible for executing and developing a research portfolio with meaningful engagement of partner organizations.
