Applications are invited for the position of "Post‐doctoral Research Fellow" as part of a multi-disciplinary collaborative project funded by Lockheed Martin. The project's Principal Investigators are:

Dr. Kumar Shanmugam, Mechanical Engineering
Dr. Matteo Chiesa, Materials Science & Engineering
Dr. Amal Al Ghaferi, Materials Science & Engineering

The successful candidate will work on a collaborative interdisciplinary research project. The main objective of the proposed research is to address the technological challenges connected to the integration of carbon nanotube array on carbon and glass fiber aerospace composites towards the realization of innovative solution. Specifically we aim at shedding light on the relation between carbon nanotube properties, their morphological distribution in the polymeric matrix and the macroscopic properties of the composite as a function of micro- and nano-structure (in flake, fiber and paper form). We aim at providing the elements that will enable the development of reliable manufacturing procedures and the integration of Carbon Nanostructure (CNS)-infusion process developed by Applied Nanostructured Solutions (ANS). This means that this inter-disciplinary research outcome would enable us to develop and design new hybrid, multi-functional materials for both structural and non-structural applications at several length scales. The Research Fellow will work on analytical and computational modeling, prototyping using 3D printing and experimental evaluation. He/She will interact with other principal investigators and their postdoctoral fellow who will work on micro- and nano-structural characterization of carbon nano-structured materials.
