Multiple PhD positions in microstructure-mechanics relationships for structural materials at high temperatures

Mark Tschopp's picture

Multiple PhD positions are available for the fall 2012/winter 2013 semesters in microstructure-mechanics relationships for structural materials at high temperatures in the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (http://www.cavs.msstate.edu) at Mississippi State University.  The project is funded through Air Force Office for Scientific Research (AFOSR) and will involve multiscale materials characterization, in situ SEM experiments, and high temperature mechanical testing for turbine blade structural materials (nickel-based superalloys). 

Students with interests in experimental solid mechanics and materials science are encouraged to contact me with a resume/CV at mtschopp@cavs.msstate.edu .  These positions are restricted to US citizens only and will involve working with university, national laboratory and/or industry collaborators on mechanics-related problems for the aerospace industry.
