Post-Doctoral Position – Thermal Transport in Crystalline Solids

The Materials Theory Group at the School of Materials Engineering of Purdue University has a post-doctoral opening in the area of physics of thermal transport in crystalline solids. The postdoc will use Boltzmann Transport Equation (BTE) approach to investigate the phonon and electron thermal transport in crystalline solids with lattice defects. A solid state physics background is highly desired for this position but applicants with a strong, closely related theory background from materials science or other engineering disciplines will be considered. The ideal candidate is one who is strongly interested in the fundamental theoretical concepts related to thermal transport and related computational modeling, and must have excellent programming skills in Fortran and/or C++. For inquiry please send an email to Professor Anter El-Azab (aelazab@purdue.edu). The position will remain open until filled. Interested candidates can send a curriculum vita with list of publications, a one-page or less statement of research interests and the names of at least two references, with their email addresses and telephone numbers to the provided email. The Materials Theory Group performs theoretical and computational research in the areas of mesoscale plasticity and dislocation dynamics, radiation effects in materials, microstructure evolution, phase field method development, phonon and electron thermal transport in crystalline solids, and computational methods for materials science and mechanics. The group has over ten graduate students and postdocs, with a wide range of collaborations.
EEO/AA Policy
Purdue University is an EOE/AA employer. All qualified individuals, including minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.

Two Fully-funded PhD Positions in Additive Manufacturing

The National Center for Additive Manufacturing Excellence (NCAME) at Auburn University is announcing for two fully-funded PhD positions in the area of structural integrity of additive manufactured (AM) materials/parts. These students will work under direction of Dr. Shamsaei from Mechanical Engineering Department. These opportunities include;
1- One PhD student is expected to work on experimental and analytical mechanics, additive manufacturing, fatigue testing and modeling, failure analysis, microstructural characterization, and fracture mechanics.
2- The second PhD student will implement computational mechanics to investigate structural integrity of AM parts. The candidate for this position should have background on crystal plasticity and finite element analysis. This candidate is also expected to be familiar with a finite element software including writing subroutines.
For international applicants, you need to have your TOEFL and GRE scores ready to report by Oct. 15th. If interested, please send your resume and a cover letter, briefly explaining your relevant experience and publications to Dr Vaziri (mzv0045@auburn.edu).

Opening for two new Ph.D. students in the Computational Mechanics group, The University of Iowa.

The Computational Mechanics group at The University of Iowa, led by Professor S. Rahman, is looking for two new Ph.D. students, who are capable of and interested in performing high-quality research on uncertainty quantification and stochastic design optimization. The research, supported by U.S. National Science Foundation, requires building a solid mathematical foundation, devising efficient numerical algorithms, and developing practical computational tools, all associated with stochastic analysis and design of complex materials and structures.
