Assistant Professor Keng Hsu from the Polytechnic (CTI) campus is seeking researchers for a FURI project that is involved in micro-manufacturing, 3D printing and soft actuators/robots. The Fulton research theme is Energy.
This FURI project is part of a research program that seeks to develop a transformational additive manufacturing approach capable of producing metal-polymer heterogeneous materials voxel-by-voxel. Specifically the FURI project will entail defining the required process conditions that will allow the metal constituent material to be manipulated and deposited. This project will involve 80% of experimental work and 20% of theoretical analysis.
Students who major in Mechanical engineering, Engineering, or Material science, and have strong inclination to hands-on lab work, basic knowledge in mechanics and materials are encouraged to apply.
Number of hours per week: 10-12 hours/week
Stipend: per FURI guidelines
How to apply
Individuals who are interested in this position should start by emailing Dr. Keng Hsu (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up a time for a detailed discussion of the project background, scope, and expectations. The rest of the process follows the FURI application process.
