Post-doctoral position in Failure of Brittle Materials at National University of Singapore
We anticipate an opening for a post-doctoral fellow position in micromechanics based failure modeling of heterogeneous brittle materials. The focus will be on characterizing the roles of flaw distributions on rate-dependent failure in materials such as concrete. The objective is to develop an understanding of failure processes with the aim of designing high performance brittle materials.
An ideal candidate must have a strong background in computational materials mechanics and in writing computational codes, with a good knowledge of failure and fracture processes. Experience with developing or implementing discrete element modeling is desirable. Knowledge of high performance computing will be a definite plus. Candidates must possess a PhD in Mechanical/ Civil/ Materials Science or allied fields with strong written skills (demonstrated in the form of publications in reputed journals) and oral communication.
Salary and benefits will be commensurate with educational qualifications and work experience. The initial appointment will be for one year with a possible one year extension depending on the performance and availability of funds.
