The MMD lab is not currently actively seeking postdoctoral researchers, however we will support applications to Cornell postdoctoral fellowships. Please email Prof. Silberstein with an attached CV and brief statement of interests.
Graduate Research Assistant
Already Admitted to Cornell’s Ph.D. Program
Ph.D. students already admitted to Cornell should email or visit Prof. Meredith Silberstein in 281 Kimball Hall. Prospective students are welcome at group meetings. Group meetings are Friday 2-3pm in Kimball 280. If you would like to attend virtually, please email Prof. Silberstein for the Zoom link.
Not Yet Admitted to Cornell’s Ph.D. Program
To be eligible to join Prof Silberstein’s group, students must first be admitted into the Ph.D. program at Cornell University, typically in the graduate fields of Mechanical Engineering or Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. Information on the Mechanical Engineering program can be found here. You will also find a list of frequently asked questions on this website. Note that the admission deadlines are typically in December or early January for Fall admission, and that applications outside of the regular cycle are not considered for admission. Contacting Prof Silberstein by email in advance with an explanation of why you are interested in joining the group will facilitate the admissions process.
Undergraduate or Masters Students
Motivated students currently enrolled at Cornell are encouraged to inquire about available projects. Emails welcome with a resume or brief description of any mechanical engineering, materials, or programming classes and/or experience. We also looking for senior design or MEng students with an interest in composites. For fall 2021 we have several MS student projects available in the areas of: (1) composites manufacturing, (2) mechanochemically self-healing glassy polymers, (3) applied math approaches to material design, and (4) ionically conducting polymers. Prospective students are welcome at group meetings, in Fall 2021 they are Fridays at 2pm in Kimball 280.
