MechE postdoctoral scholars are part of a large network of more than 1,400 postdocs across the entire Institute. Postdocs hold doctoral degrees and pursue a program of research and training under the direction of an MIT faculty member.
Postdoctoral scholars are a very important part of the research community here in MechE, adding insight and energy, expertise and a fresh perspective to our many research endeavors. We hope that, in exchange, postdocs receive one final spark that comes from working side-by-side with a MechE faculty member before shooting out on their own to begin what I know will be careers marked by excellence.
Dr. Heather Beem (PhD ’15) has designed a sensor that could be used by underwater robots to collect data on hydrothermal events or marine life.
MechE alum Addison Stark SM ’10, PhD ’15 shares how his experiences with MIT’s energy programs connect them to the global energy community.
