University of Notre Dame - Postdoctoral Associate

Postdoctoral Associate

 

            The University of Notre Dame, Center for Shock Wave-processing of Advanced Reactive Materials (C-SWARM), is seeking a highly qualified candidate for the postdoctoral associate position in the area of computational mechanics/physics with emphasis on chemically reactive solids. C-SWARM is center of excellence established by National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) whose primary focus is on the emerging field of predictive science. The main mission of C-SWARM is to predict shock conditions under which new materials can be synthesized using predictive computational models that are verified and validated with quantified uncertainty on future high-performance Exascale computer platforms.

            The successful candidates will be a key part of a team that is developing and implementing adaptive, multiscale, high-performance (parallel) computational algorithms for numerical solutions of chemo-thermo-mechanical PDE’s with emphasis on complex heterogeneous materials, such as heterogeneous reactive composites, etc.

 

Qualifications:

·   Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Applied Mathematics, Physics or related engineering or science discipline

·   Knowledge of computational nonlinear solid/fluid mechanics and/or chemical kinetics and solid-solid phase transformations

·   Knowledge of numerical methods for solution of nonlinear PDEs

·   Knowledge of C/C++ and UNIX operating system is required

·   Experience in parallel programming

 

Close Date:

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

 

Salary:

Salary will commensurate with qualifications and experience.

 

Additional questions:

Contact the Center Director.
