Postdoctoral openings

Like most faculty, I am always looking for postdocs who already have previous experience in the topics that overlap with my research. If you have extensive coding experience, have mechanics and/or machine learning background and are interested in our line of research, I am always looking forward to hearing from such candidates.

If you think you would fit the group, please email me with the subject "Postdoc Inquiry". In your email, please explain to me your prior research experience and how this contributes to the overlapping areas. We do not have internal fellowships at the department to support a long visit. These are mainly restricted to short 3-month visit that aims to write proposals to support longer visits. Thus, if you know of potential fellowships that can support your visit, please feel free to let me know about them in the email. Some available fellowships that I am aware of include (but not limited to)

 Visiting students 

I generally do not have funding for extended visits for students. If you are a student and at a university outside of Manchester, then please talk to your advisor about this. I would generally consider a visit only if: (a) I already have a existing collaboration with your advisor and (b) You are not self-funding the visit but have funding support, from your advisor, for the visit. 

 Visiting faculty and collaborators

I am always open for collaborations if there is a mutual topic of interest. Unfortunately, I do not have funding to support visiting faculty. If you are from the EU, India, USA, Brazil, we can explore joint proposals. Some of the potential funding, that I am aware of to support visits include:
