Postdoctoral position in Computational Mechanics at Vanderbilt University

Ravindra Duddu's picture

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position (open immediately) in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Vanderbilt University. The candidate will conduct research in the broad area of computational solid mechanics and is expected to contribute to one or both of the following ongoing projects:

1) Modeling the mechano-electrochemistry of corrosive dissolution or dealloying of metal alloys. 

2) Wave propagation in acoustic, elastic and viscoelastic media relevant to ultrasound imaging of biological tissues.

Qualifiations: The candidate must have completed a Ph.D. in Civil or Mechanical Engineering (Computational Mechanics) or a related field. The candidate is expected to have a good record of publications and possess excellent verbal and written communication skills. The candidate will be working in a multi-disciplinary research environment and work in close collaboration with material scientists, biomedical engineers and clinicians.

The ideal candidate would have a strong background in computational mechanics and have prior experience in more than one of the following topics: extended/generalized finite element method (X/GFEM), level set method, phase field method, mechanics of electrochemical systems and/or wave propagation. Experience with finite element software such as FEniCS, Abaqus, and programming in C++ and FORTRAN is essential. Knowledge of parallel computing strategies is desirable.

Application Details: The review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.To apply,email Prof. Ravindra Duddu with your CV, cover letter and the full contact details of three professional references. Vanderbilt University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. Women, minorities and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
