Assistant research scientist in the PRISMS center at the University of Michigan

The Predictive Integrated Structural Materials Science (PRISMS) Center at University of Michigan is seeking a computational materials scientist to participate in the development of production-standard open source scientific codes. The Center is home to a number of closely-knit research groups that specialize in computational materials science spanning the spatial scales from electronic structure to the continuum, and a spectrum of theories including Density Functional Theory, Statistical Mechanics, Phase Field Models, Crystal Plasticity and Continuum Mechanics. We have released major open source codes in all of these areas. It also has a dedicated data and model repository group and experimental groups. The ultimate goal is to advance the scientific study of microstructural evolution and mechanical behavior of structural metals, develop advanced materials and mechanics models and integrate them into an open-source code that will be available to the materials science community. The required codes will be integrated, open-source, computationally efficient and user friendly.

We are looking for a candidate to work closely with other staff, faculty and graduate students to develop this ground-breaking technology.  The specific area is in the development and application of our crystal plasticity and fracture simulations codes that are housed in our finite element based PRISMS-Plasticity code. Come join this exciting center as we seek to create the future of integrated computational materials science and engineering.
