Post-Doc position at Mississippi State University

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

We are currently seeking a qualified postdoctoral researcher to join our geotechnical engineering team at Mississippi State University (MSU). The postdoctoral fellow will be working with a multi-disciplinary team of scientists and engineers at MSU in collaboration with few other institutions to contribute to our ongoing studies on two main modeling themes of geo-energy (e.g., carbon sequestration) and geotechnical engineering in the face of climate change.

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 isogeometric methods and uncertainty quantification. 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 isogeometric analysis of complex materials and structures. A substantial background in solid mechanics with coding experience in finite-element or similar methods is a must; exposures to uncertainty quantification and probabilistic methods are highly desirable.
