Postdoctoral Fellow, Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute: Theoretical and computational multiscale modeling of the dynamics of granular solids

A new postdoctoral fellow position is available within the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (hemi.jhu.edu) at Johns Hopkins University.  The position is in the area of the fundamental mechanics issues associated with theoretical and computational multiscale modeling of the dynamics of granular materials.  The postdoctoral fellow is expected to assist in the development of a theoretical basis and associated computational approaches for the dynamics of granular solids that accounts for the lengthscales and timescales associated with the granular structure. The transition from monolithic solids to granular flow is also of interest. The selected candidate will work under the supervision of Prof. K.T. Ramesh and Prof. Lori Graham-Brady.

The potential candidate should have a Ph.D. in engineering or physics, and a background in continuum mechanics, numerical methods and constitutive modeling.  It is strongly desirable for the candidate to have experience using finite element methods or particle-based numerical methods for analysis of problems in solid mechanics. The University is committed to building a diverse environment; women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

If you are interested, please send an email to bess@jhu.edu with a single PDF file containing your curriculum vitae, names of at least two references, and a brief description of how your experience and background meets the requirements for this position. Please use the subject line “Postdoctoral Fellow Application: Dynamics of granular solids.” Review of applications will begin June 15, but we will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.

The Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer.
