Postdoc & PhD positions

You are here

The Computational Biomechanics Lab has openings for postdocs and PhD students.

For postdoc position: The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in either mechanical, biomedical, aeronautical, civil engineering or equivalent field with a strong foundation in programming (C++ and python), computational mechanics, numerical methods, machine learning techniques and the finite element method. Special consideration will be given to candidates who are familiar with the open-source finite element library FeNiCS, cardiac finite element modeling, medical image processing, and physics-informed machine learning. The candidate is expected to possess excellent communication and written skills. In this position, the candidate will work to develop data-driven multiscale/multiphysics formulations and code to solve problems related to the cardiovascular system. Additionally, the selected candidate will be expected to help mentor students and publish peer-reviewed journal articles. The successful candidate will enjoy ample training and networking opportunities.

Outstanding postdoc candidates are invited to submit a letter of application detailing their relevant background, a CV and contact information of 3 references to here. Any enquiries can also be directed to Dr. Lik Chuan Lee at

For PhD positions: We are looking for self-motivated PhD students to work in the broad area of computational biomechanics focusing on cardiovascular modeling. Students with background in engineering mechanics, mechanical engineering, civil engineering and/or biomedical engineering are welcome to apply.  PhD students in the lab will receive not only rigorous training in computational modeling of biosystems, but also exposure and possible hands-on-experience in relevant experiments involving animal studies.

Interested students can submit a letter of application and CV to Dr. Lik Chuan Lee at
