The Computational Mechanics group at The University of Iowa, led by Professor S. Rahman, is looking for new Ph.D. students, who are capable of and interested in performing high-quality research on engineering design. The research, supported by National Science Foundation and others, entails building a solid mathematical foundation, devising efficient numerical algorithms, and developing practical computational tools for stochastic design optimization. A substantial background in solid mechanics and structural optimization is a must; exposures to stochastics and probabilistic methods are highly desirable.
If you are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. degree at Iowa, please contact and send a resume to: Professor Sharif Rahman at email@example.com. Please note that we are interested in students who already have M.S. degrees in engineering or mathematics. The desired start date is Spring 2016 or sooner.
