Open Master's or PhD position for Fall 2023 on experimental mechanics

One MS or PhD student is sought to fill an opening in the Gross Materials Lab (group website: at the University of South Carolina. This research is focused on conducting novel mechanical experiments with advanced metrology. This research is primarily experimental and will integrate with the work of a postdoc working on computational methods to distill the multitudes of data into information that practicing engineers rely on. Students must have prior hands on experience to be considered (any prior experience is OK, whether it be in a lab, garage, shop, etc.).

Open Postdoc position for Fall 2023 on computational methods to process experimental data

One postdoc is sought to fill an opening in the Gross Materials Lab (group website: at the University of South Carolina. This research is focused on extracting yield surfaces from data rich full-field experimental information by solving an inverse problem. This research will be primarily computational and will integrate closely with a graduate student conducting experiments. Applicants with relevant experience are strongly encouraged to apply.
