Postdoctoral Scholar

John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center

Location: University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH
Postion Posted: May 26, 2021. Open until filled.

The John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of New Hampshire is searching for a creative postdoctoral scholar in the area of the mechanics, materials characterization, and manufacturing innovations with a particular focus on metal deformation processes. The specific project that the postdoctoral scholar will contribute is the “Sheet Metal for Trauma Fixation” research thrust, which is part of a $20M/5-year NSF-funded cooperative agreement called NH BioMade.  This includes experimentally and numerically investigating non-linear deformation paths during the forming of biocompatible sheet metals.  The project involves extensive material characterization with intentional manipulation of the deformation path as well as crystal plasticity modeling to predict, e.g., phase transformation during stainless steel forming and twinning behavior in titanium alloys.  A $1M double sided incremental forming machine will allow patient specific style implants to be fabricated.  Opportunities for research communication and mentorship training and teaching of courses are also available.

If interested, please apply to the position at:


The target date for applications is June 21, 2021, but the search will remain open until the position is filled.
