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
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.
