The Form Finding Lab in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Princeton University invites applications for a post-doctoral or more senior research position to support research on the mechanics and design of elastic rod network. The research will be conducted under the direction of Professor Sigrid Adriaenssens. 

Responsibilities will include: 
- Developing a numerical framework that efficiently solves static equilibria and bifurcations in elastic rod networks, a stability test that determines the stability of the static equilibria, and an optimization framework that assembles fundamental network cells to elastic structures with tunable mechanical properties and geometries;
- Overseeing day-to-day graduate student's research as it relates to project goals and meeting project milestones and go/no-go points; 
- Giving and contributing to research seminars within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering;
- Presenting at conferences and leading journal publication efforts;
- Leading outreach effort of designing and constructing demonstrators, and developing and writing research proposals.  

Minimum qualifications:
- Doctoral degree in mechanical or civil engineering, architectural engineering, physics or applied mathematics field;
- A strong background in theoretical mechanics and applied mathematics, with an expertise in the mechanics of thin rods and strips, stability analysis, and optimal control theory. Experiences with analytical modeling, boundary value problems, numerical continuation, and table-top experimental mechanics will be a plus;
- Strong project management skills and a very good publication record.
