Looking for postdoc position in solid mechanics/biophysics

Tianxiang's picture

Dear everyone,

My name is Tianxiang Su. I am a 4th year PhD student in ME department in UPenn, working with Dr. Prashant Purohit. I am graduating in August and would like to look for a postdoc position in solid mechanics or biophysics. I am keeping an eye on this forum for openings myself. But if anyone happens to know some other great opportunities, please kindly let me know. 

Here is my information:


Education Background:

(1) 07-now (4 yrs): PhD, ME@UPenn, GPA: 4.0

(2) 03-07, BS, ME@Peking University, GPA: 3.86/4.0, (rank #1 every year).


1. T Su and PK Purohit (submitted on Feb 18, 2011) Fluctuating elastic filaments under distributed loads.

2. T Su and PK Purohit (submitted on Dec 24, 2010) Entropically driven diffusion: Application to motion of polymers in non-uniform nanochannels.

3. T Su, SK Das, X Ming and PK Purohit (2011) Transition between two regimes describing internal fluctuation of DNA in a nanochannel.  PLoS One, (accepted)

4. T Su and PK Purohit (2010)  Thermomechanics of a heterogeneous fluctuating chain. Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids, 58:164-186.

5. T Su and PK Purohit (2009)  Mechanics of heterogeneous fluctuating elastic rods. The Proceedings of the ASME-IDETC conference. (8 pages)

6. T Su and PK Purohit (2009) Mechanics of forced unfolding of proteins. Acta Biomaterialia, 5:1855-1863.


Best paper, graduate student paper competition, SES 2010 Conference. 


I am interested in doing research on solid mechanics or biophysics. I am posting this message in hopes of getting more information on possible openings. I will be grateful for any suggestions.

Thanks for your time to read this message.
