University of Minnesota: Department of Mechanical Engineering


In the Dutcher Group, we highly value approaching challenges in complex fluid dynamics with multidisciplinary perspectives. Excellent scholars from all areas of engineering and science, broadly defined, and at any education level, are welcome here. Former and current group members hold degrees in applied science, biological engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry, engineering mathematics, environmental science and engineering, mathematics, mechanical engineering, meteorology, music performance, and physics.

Postdoctoral scholars: There may be openings this Fall in the area of fluid dynamics, soft matter, and rheology. Please contact Prof. Dutcher with your CV and list of three references.

Graduate students: There are 1-2 RA openings in the Complex Fluids and Multiphase Flows group starting Fall 2018. First year Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering and Materials Science UMN PhD students should contact Cari to learn more. If you are interested in a position for Fall 2019, the first step is to apply for graduate studies here.

Undergraduate students: There are undergraduate research positions available in Fall 2018, for exceptional and highly motivated undergraduate students to perform independent research projects. Interested ME and CEMS students should contact Prof. Dutcher with your CV, unofficial transcript, and 2 references.
