Advanced Materials and Additive Manufacturing (AM2) Research Group
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Princeton University

Two Ph.D. positions in the areas of (1) bio-inspired design and novel architected engineering materials and (2) additive and automated manufacturing processes

Advanced Materials and Additive Manufacturing (AM2) Research Group is seeking motivated candidates for two open Ph.D. positions starting Fall 2021. Interested candidates must contact Prof. Reza Moini in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University.

(1) Students with degrees in material science, civil, or mechanical engineering and backgrounds in mechanics of materials, biomimetic design, materials characterization, processing, and computational mechanics are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will work on challenging research questions focused on understanding architected and bio-inspired designs of engineering materials and structures and necessary fabrications processes, including advanced and additive manufacturing techniques, and implementing them in the development of brittle and quasi-brittle materials with unique performance characteristics for civil and energy infrastructure.

(2) Students with a degree in mechanical, industrial, and civil engineering with a strong background in the fields of autonomous manufacturing, additive manufacturing of materials, and robotic fabrication and control are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will work on the development of automated additive manufacturing technologies and the advancement of materials processing techniques for understanding and investigating fundamental processing-property relationships in new infrastructure components.

The students will work with Prof. Moini and will have the opportunity to work in state-of-the-art materials and additive manufacturing laboratories and to work in a collaborative, supportive, and inclusive interdisciplinary research environment. Candidates with a master’s degree and relevant expertise and research skills are further encouraged to apply.
