The College of Engineering and Science at Louisiana Tech University is seeking self-motivated candidates for a Graduate Research Assistant (Ph.D. student) position, with the earliest starting date in Winter 2018.

Successful candidates will join the research group of Dr. Xiang (Shawn) Chen, who is in the research area of atomistic and multiscale simulation/modeling. A list of related publications can be found below: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=qdz0cy4AAAAJ&hl=en

Job responsibilities: Use atomistic and multiscale simulation / modeling to study mechanical and thermal properties of functional materials. Job duties may involve methodology development (theoretical / computational) and applications.

Requirements: B.S. or M.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science/Engineering, Physics, or other related disciplines. In particular, self-motivated individuals who have research experience in one or more of the following areas are strongly encouraged to apply:

  • Finite Element Modeling, Atomistic Simulation
  • Continuum Mechanics
  • Solid State Physics
  • Crystal Plasticity, Dislocation Dynamics, Thermal Transport
  • Multiscale Modeling of Materials
  • LAMMPS, DL_POLY, GULP
  • FORTRAN, C++, OpenMPI

To apply: Please email Dr. Xiang (Shawn) Chen (shawnxc@latech.edu) with a detailed CV, including your GPA, scores of TOEFL (or IELTS) and GRE, if applicable and available.
