Postdoctoral and PhD positions in Stochastic Computational Mechanics, Duke University

jguilleminot_duke's picture

Several positions at the PhD and postdoctoral levels are available in the group of Prof. Guilleminot at Duke University. The ideal candidates should have a particular interest in conducting interdisciplinary research at the interface of computational mechanics, materials science and uncertainty quantification. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) stochastic modeling and computational frameworks for large-scale nonlinear materials and systems, statistical inverse problems and multiscale approaches. This research program interfaces with a broader initiative in Computational Mechanics and Scientific Computing at Duke University.

Applicants at the postdoctoral level should have a PhD in any of the following fields: civil engineering, materials science or mechanical engineering. Furthermore, the selected candidate should have significant past experience (supported by publication records) in computational mathematics, computational mechanics, multiscale approaches and/or stochastic analysis. Candidates should send a detailed CV, contact information of at least two professional references and a brief statement of research interests (in a single PDF document) to Prof. Guilleminot. The expected starting date is January 2018 (with flexibility on timing), and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Candidates interested to join the group at the Ph.D. level should have a degree in civil engineering, materials science or mechanical engineering. Applicants must demonstrate a strong motivation to perform both theoretical and computational developments. Programming skills are an advantage but are not specifically required. Prospective students should send a cover letter, a vita (including an overview of academic records), names and addresses of at least two references and a research statement (in a single PDF document) to Prof. Guilleminot. Final applications must be submitted through the portal of the Duke Graduate School. The expected starting dates are in spring or fall 2018.
