Advanced Materials and 3D Printing Lab (http://kshanmugam.faculty.masdar.ac.ae/) at Masdar Institute invites applications for postdoctoral position to work on a multi-disciplinary collaborative project funded by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), Abu Dhabi.  Successful candidate(s) will work in the Institute Center for Energy (iEnergy) and will be based in Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MME) department at Masdar Institute. These positions warrant regular communication with the international collaborative team.

Project Description

The goal of this proposed research is to design multifunctional polymer composites with hybrid microstructure and designed-in properties. A combined multiscale modeling and experimental approach will be employed in conjunction with detailed material characterization techniques. The Research Fellow(s) will work in the area of design, manufacturing, characterization and testing of CNT-CFRP composites with an objective of optimizing structural and functional response under a range of loading conditions.  Candidates shall have a PhD degree in a relevant discipline (Mechanical, Materials or Aerospace Engineering) from a reputable university.

Background and Experience in two or more of the following areas are essential

·         Damage and fracture mechanics of hyper-elastic composites

·         Strong background and experience in multi-scale modeling of hybrid composites

·         Experience in writing user subroutines (for example UMAT for Abaqus FEA), working knowledge of MATLAB, Maple/Mathematica and Python scripting

·         Mechanics of 3D Printed composites

·         Multi-physics through-process modeling (TPM) of composites

·         MD Simulation of CNT/Graphene polymer composites

·         Modeling of thermal, electrical and Piezoresistive behavior of multi-scale polymer composites

Desired Skills:

·         Established track record evidenced by publications in top quality journals

·         Excellent verbal and written communication skills

·         Positive attitude, flexibility, willingness and desire to work in a multidisciplinary international research group

·         Demonstrated ability to formulate, plan and conduct research with specific objectives and milestones

·         Demonstrated ability to work autonomously and in team-oriented research environment

·         Strong analytical skills, inter-personnel skills, and innovative thinking

Application submittal information

Application materials should include: Cover letter describing the applicant’s current position and how his/her experience matches the position requirements, Curriculum Vitae, Statements of research interests and E-mail contact information for at least three references. Materials must be submitted electronically as a single PDF file to s.kumar@eng.oxon.org specifying “ADNOC-Postdoc” in the subject line. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Candidates are expected to start at the earliest possible date. While we thank all applicants for their interest, only those under consideration will be contacted for a follow-up interview.
