The School of Materials Engineering at Purdue University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in the area of Computational Mesoscale Plasticity. The successful candidate will model plasticity of single crystals using continuum dislocation dynamics and perform computational solution using finite element method. We are particularly interested in applicants with expertise in computational materials science and/or computational mechanics, good background in elasticity and plasticity theory, and knowledge of dislocation dynamics. Prior experience in numerical methods and parallel programming is highly desired. The position will be available in April 2017. It will be offered initially for 12 months with the possibility of extension to two or more years depending on candidate’s performance. Applications should be submitted by email to: Anter El-Azab, Professor, Purdue University, School of Materials Engineering, Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering, 701 West Stadium Avenue, West Lafayette, IN 47907-2045, Phone: 765-496-6864, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Application should include a curriculum vita with list of publications, one-page (or less) statement of research interests, and the names of at least two references with their email addresses and telephone numbers. Purdue University is an EOE/AA employer. All qualified individuals,including minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
