Syracuse University Post Doc - Biofilm in Syracuse, New York
The research project, supported by NIH, aims to uncover the fundamental mechanics of preventing biofilm formation and fracturing biofilms with actively controlled surface topographies. The postdoc research associate will focus on the modeling and simulation aspects and closely collaborate with experimental groups at SU. The appointment will be 12 months, renewable based on performance and funding availability. The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) is concerned with the two areas of activity implied by its name. Mechanical engineering, one of the major disciplines within the engineering profession, deals with thermal and mechanical energy and its transformation and application for the public good. Virtually every aspect of human existence is influenced by modern mechanical engineering. In contemporary society mechanical engineers design and build medical devices, home appliances, transportation systems, industrial machinery, aircraft and rockets. Mechanical engineers are involved with power generation, computer design and with cleaning and maintaining a healthy environment. The degree program in Aerospace Engineering is closely allied with Mechanical Engineering and focuses on aeronautical and space system applications including aircraft and spacecraft for civilian and military use.
