PhD position in computational solid / fracture mechanics

rabedi's picture


I have a PhD position available for a project titled "Asynchronous, Parallel-Adaptive Solution of Extreme Multiscale Problems in Seismology" funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). The research involves:

a. Formulation of contact / fracture models (interfacial and/or bulk) for seismic applications, e.g. anisotropic, inhomogeneous rock under dynamic loads.

b. Adaptive spacetime time discontinuous Galerkin formulation for the solution of multiphysics PDEs relevant to this application.

c. High performance computing aspects of the method.

The gradurate research assistantship (GRA) position is for the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) which is a part of University of Tennessee Knoxville (UTK). This is a collaborative project with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The student should have a strong background and interest in all or most of the following areas:

1. Mathematics: numerical analysis.

2. Computational Solid Mechanics: finite element methods.

3. Computer programming: Proficiency in C++ programming is highly valued. 

4. Fracture Mechanics

This position will be filled very shortly, so please contact me at the earliest possible.

Interested applicants should send an email to or directly describing their background in the four areas mentioned above and attached their CV / resume.
