Post-Doctoral Scholar Recruitment

The ARMOR Lab is currently not interviewing or hiring any post-doctoral scholars.

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) foundation is sponsoring a postdoc fellowship opportunity in conjunction with the Naval Medical Center San Diego (NMCSD) and the University of California - San Diego's (UCSD) Active, Responsive, Multifunctional, and Ordered-materials Research (ARMOR) Lab.

The selected candidate will collaborate among a diverse group of researchers and clinicians at the Extremity Trauma and Amputation Center of Excellence (EACE) and UCSD's ARMOR lab. He/she will have the opportunity to contribute to technology development that will improve the clinical care of patients with musculoskeletal trauma. The EACE is the leading advocate for research and treatment of Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) patients with extremity trauma and amputation. The EACE leads efforts to enhance collaboration between the DoD and the VA extremity trauma and amputation care providers and conduct scientific research to minimize the effects of traumatic injuries and improve clinical outcomes (

The primary research program to be undertaken involves skills in computer optimization, additive manufacturing, and multifunctional design of smart sensing materials. The candidate will conduct fundamental research, advance innovative ideas and technologies, and prototype new sensing and actuation systems. The candidate will also be involved with hands-on experimental testing, as well as numerical simulations. The research will span a broad spectrum of technology readiness levels, with both civilian and military applications.
