We seek a full time post-doctoral fellow to work on the continuum analyses, including constitutive modeling and finite element simulations, of cracks in hydrogels under the supervision of John Bassani and Prashant Purohit in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. The position will be for two years and will be funded through a new NIH-funded project on mechanisms of mechano-chemical rupture of blood clots and thrombi that combines experiments, molecular modeling, and continuum-based analyses. The goal is to explore and understand the fracture toughness of blood clots and thrombi, thus providing a mechanistic basis for life-threatening thrombotic embolization. A strong background in mechanics of materials and numerical analyses is required. The ideal candidate is also expected to have the ability to collaborate with experimentalists and specialists in molecular simulations and to have knowledge of biomaterials.

Applicants should send their CV with a list of references and letters (2) of recommendation when available to:

Peter Litt Academic Coordinator, MEAM

Email: Phone: 215-746-1818

Thank you,

John Bassani

Prashant Purohit
