Postdoc in Mechanics and Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments

ktramesh's picture


The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in experimental mechanics, with an emphasis on understanding the critical mechanisms that control the behavior of materials in extreme dynamic environments. A significant part of the research is expected to include using major national facilities such as APS. It is expected that the Fellow will also help develop the intersection of experimental mechanics and data science.

The selected candidate will work under the primary supervision of Professor K.T. Ramesh. HEMI Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to develop collaborative interactions with faculty and collaborating scientists in the Institute. Further, in addition to scholarship, HEMI Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to develop skills in mentoring students, writing scientific proposals, and communicating to non-scientists.

The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute ( is a multidivisional institute at Johns Hopkins University that is devoted to advancing the fundamental science associated with materials and structures under extreme conditions and/or exhibiting extreme performance.

Candidates must have an earned doctorate in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, materials science, mechanics, physics, planetary science or related fields. If you are interested, please send an email to with a single PDF file containing your curriculum vitae, the names of at least two references, a brief (1 page) research statement, and at least one representative journal publication. Please use the subject line “HEMI Postdoctoral Fellow in Dynamic Behavior.” We will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.

Johns Hopkins University is committed to building a diverse environment; women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. The Johns Hopkins University is an EEO/AA Employer.
