There are multiple opportunities for graduate students and postdocs as well as undergraduate researchers in the general area of computational mechanical design, with a bias toward fundamental aspects, both theoretical and computational.

If you feel that you have a background that can contribute to our work, then send me an email explaining how you could contribute.

Funding may be available to exceptional graduate students who have the potential to excel beyond their undergraduate education. Our research is focused on the theoretical aspects of computational design. For this reason, a successful graduate student in this area must have

  • a firm background in mathematics and engineering;
  • strong computer programming skills, and familiarity with at least one high level programming language;
  • outstanding communication skills; and
  • a motivating curiosity to understand how things work, state the principles formally, and then prove them :-)

Desired Qualifications: previous research experience, advanced mathematics, and familiarity with geometric modeling.

The CDL lab has postdoctoral positions available for several projects in computational design for researchers with excellent analytical, algorithmic, and writing skills.
