The Advanced Materials and Building Efficiency Research laboratory (AMBER Lab) in the Division of Engineering, New York University Abu Dhabi, seeks to recruit a post-doctoral associate to work on the characterization and manufacturing of high-fidelity lunar regolith simulants utilizing local materials available within the United Arab Emirates.
The successful applicant will work on three main areas leading to the success of this fascinating project:
(i) to design and development of innovative building materials, including but not limited to magnesium-based cement, limestone calcined clay cement, and self-healing and self-sensing cement with vernacular materials or byproducts, (ii) to engineer innovative construction materials with superior properties, such as 3D printable concrete, (iii) to assist the development, testing, and application of lunar regolith simulants targeted at proposed landing sites of future lunar missions. The candidate will work in a multidisciplinary environment consisting of PhD-level scientists and graduate and undergraduate students.
Applicants must have experience in the development and performance assessment of cementitious materials. Excellent experimental skills relevant to the project (in particular, characterization of construction materials, electromechanical admittance, electrical impedance, and guided wave propagation) are favored. Applicants should have an undergraduate degree and Ph.D. in Civil Engineering, Materials Science, or closely related fields. Candidates with outstanding interpersonal and communications skills, problem-solving, and decision-making abilities are preferred.
The terms of employment are very competitive and include housing and educational subsidies for children.
