PhD Opening in Computational Mechanics

Two PhD positions (research assistants) are available in the Department of Mechanical Engineering within the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). The full-support position is available for Fall 2018. The projects are focused on conducting computational modeling and simulations of various materials, including atomistic and multiscale simulations.

Candidates who have a Bachelor/Master's degree in Engineering Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering, or Material Science and have research experience in one or more of the following areas are encouraged to apply: (1) Atomistic Simulations (Molecular Dynamic); (2) First-principles Density-Functional Theory (DFT) calculations; (3) Finite Element Modeling and Analysis; (4) Multi-scale Simulations;  (5) Computational Coding (FORTRAN, C++, MPI, Linux). Interested applicants please send a detailed C.V. and transcripts to Dr. Yang by email ( For details regarding the open positions and Dr. Yang’s research, please visit
