Biological Dynamics and Devices Lab in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Stevens Institute of Technology invites applicants for PhD student and postdoctoral scholar positions in the areas of cellular mechanics and concussion biomechanics.
The selected candidates will have opportunities to closely work with collaborators at Stanford, UIUC and Mount Sinai Hospital. Interested candidates should send their CVs and representative publications to firstname.lastname@example.org by addressing Prof. Mehmet Kurt.
Stevens is a top-ranked private technological university located in Hoboken, New Jersey. The Institute’s small size eases cross-department and interdisciplinary research ties and teaching programs. The 55-acre campus is on the Hudson River across from midtown Manhattan within a few minutes from New York City via public transportation. Hoboken is an upscale small city, the residence of choice for many professionals working in NYC. Students typically live in Hoboken, Manhattan, and in suburban communities in Northern New Jersey along commuter train lines to Hoboken and NYC. Stevens’s location offers excellent opportunities for collaborations with nearby universities such as NYU, Princeton, Columbia, and Rutgers/DIMACS as well as major industrial research laboratories such as Bell Labs, AT&T Labs, IBM Research,Google NYC, Siemens, and the Sarnoff Corporation.
