Two postdoctoral fellow positions in solid mechanics/biomechanics at Dartmouth are available from July 2015.

The subjects of research include, but are not limited to, mechanics of morphogenesis in embryos and plants, fast motion of plants (e.g., the Venus flytrap's rapid closure), mechanical self-assembly and instability of thin structures (e.g., DNA, origami structures, plant tendrils, self-assembly of nanostructures, etc.), and bioinspired structures.

Candidates with a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, Physics, Biomedical Engineering (or any related field) with strong publication records are encouraged to submit a full CV, a cover letter stating research experience and interests, and the contact information of three references to Dr. Zi Chen at

Our group strives to provide a stimulating, interdisciplinary environment with exciting research topics and excellent colleagues where the candidates can be trained to become outstanding independent researchers, with sufficient freedom to explore their own ideas while working on well-designed projects. More details about our research can be found at The positions remain open until filled.

Dartmouth College (or Dartmouth) is a private ivy league research university located in Hanover, New Hampshire, about two hours' drive from Boston. Dartmouth has one of the oldest professional schools of engineering in the country and features a single unified department of engineering sciences that fosters cross-disciplinary innovation in research and teaching. CNN and Money magazine rated Hanover the sixth best place to live in America in 2011, and the second best in 2007. Among college towns, Hanover was ranked the first (
