There are immediate openings for multiple Postdoc positions on 3-D printed electronics and computational thermo-fluidic modelling of 3D printing processes. Interested candidates should immediately apply to Prof. Siddhartha Das (

Candidates interested to work on other other areas should apply for any one of the following fellowships. Prior discussions with Prof. Das is necessary (send an email to; also based on the situation Prof. Das may help the candidate to prepare the application package. Citizenship requirement may vary depending on the fellowship:

  1. NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship (for Canadian citizens and Canadian Permanent Residents) 
  2. Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship (for Canadian citizens and Canadian Permanent Residents) (Prof. Das has been a recipient of this fellowship; so he can help the interested and eligible candidates to prepare their package)
  3. Fulbright-Nehru Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (for Indian citizens)
  4. Raman Fellowship for Post Doctoral Research (for Indian citizens)


There are immediate openings for multiple PhD students in three areas: (1) Computational Modelling of Thermofluidics of 3D printing; (2) Atomistic Modelling of Soft Materials and Nanoscale Flows; (3) Thermo-fluidic experiments related to 3D Printing and Printed Electronics.

The eligible candidates should apply for a PhD position for Spring 2021 in the Department of  Mechanical Engineering, University of Maryland. Interested students should email Prof. Das (Email: immediately with their detailed CV and a Cover Letter where they clearly describe their prior related computational/experimental knowledge/experiences.


Currently, there are several openings for MS positions in SMIEL. The qualified and interested candidates may discuss the exact nature of the project and other prospects (e.g., funding, possible conversion to Ph.D.) directly with Prof. Siddhartha Das ( Dr. Das will only respond to the emails of those candidates who will be considered to be sufficiently qualified to fill these vacant positions.


A big part of SMIEL is training and involving undergraduate students in cutting-edge research with a focus on publishing high-quality journal papers. Already multiple papers authored by undergraduates working in SMIEL have been published in top-tier journals, with one of the papers being selected as the Cover Article of the journal Colloids and Surfaces B. Undergraduate students, who are interested to join SMIEL and do research during the summer or during the normal semesters, are encouraged to apply. Emails should be sent directly to Prof. Das (
