美国东北大学机械与工业工程系白若冰教授课题组计划在固体力学，仿生材料，生物材料，活性软材料，以及软体机器人方面做跨学科研究，以理论与实验相结合为主。目前课题组经费和实验室空间充足，在波士顿及周边也已有很多待开展的合作。课题组现招收多名博士研究生，2021年春季或秋季入学。课题组也欢迎各个方向的访问学生和学者。感兴趣的老师、同学可访问Dr. Bai的个人主页（谷歌学术 Ruobing Bai - Homepage）了解以往的研究工作，或邮件联系 email@example.com 询问。
美国东北大学目前US News全美排名： #31 in Best Graduate Engineering School, #40 in National Universities, and #1 in Best Co-op/Internships。学校科研投入力度大，并和工业界合作紧密。东北大学坐落于波士顿市中心，临近波士顿大学、麻省理工、哈佛大学、波士顿学院、塔夫茨大学等，非常容易建立联系。波士顿为美国一流的科技、文化、教育中心，极具包容性，是生活与就业的理想选择。
Multiple fully funded PhD positions in mechanics and/or materials at Northeastern University (Spring/Fall 2021)
Information: The group of Dr. Ruobing Bai in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Northeastern University has multiple fully funded PhD positions, starting Spring/Fall 2021. Successful candidates will be working in the broad area of mechanics and/or materials, including but not limited to biomimetic and biological materials, soft active materials, soft robotics, multiphysics characterization, design, and functionalization. Research will be focused on the combination of theory and experiment.
Qualification and how to apply: We are looking for highly motivated students with Bachelor's or Master's degree from any relevant science and engineering background, such as mechanics, materials science, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, physics, chemistry, etc. Interested candidates can visit the personal website of Dr. Ruobing Bai for more information about his background and research interests. Candidates are welcome to directly contact Dr. Ruobing Bai via his current email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss further details of the position.
About Northeastern University: Northeastern University is a private research university in Boston, Massachusetts, established in 1898. It is ranked by US News in 2020 as #31 in Best Graduate Engineering School, #40 in National Universities, and #1 in Best Co-op/Internships. This ranking is expected to continue growing in the near future. The University currently has an increasing endowment in research and expands rapidly. The famous Co-op program by connecting students with industrial companies also make Northeastern graduates very attractive in the industrial job market. Students at Northeastern also have the great opportunity to build connections with other neighboring universities such as Harvard, MIT, Boston University, Boston College, Tufts University, and so on. The city of Boston is one of the oldest cities in the US, and is currently a major center of education, biomedical, IT, and other high technology industries. Boston is a great place for living and working.
About Dr. Ruobing Bai: Ruobing Bai will join the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Northeastern University in January 2021. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering at California Institute of Technology. He received his B.S. in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at Peking University in 2012, and his Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences under the program of Materials Science and Mechanical Engineering at Harvard University in May 2018. His research interest lies in theory and experiment of soft active materials (hydrogels, liquid crystal elastomers, and biomaterials), large deformation, fracture, adhesion, and complex rheology of materials, as well as multiphysics and functionalities of materials combining mechanics, thermodynamics, chemistry, optics, and electromagnetism. Applications include soft robotics, sensors, biomimetic and biological materials for human health, human-machine interfaces, human augmentation, and biohybrid machines.
