Senior Postdoc Position in Advanced Materials Lab at Northwestern

cbrinson's picture

A senior postdoctoral position is available
immediately in Brinson’s Advanced Materials Lab. The main project involves
multiscale modeling of polymer based composites, considering nanostructure, microstructure,
and continuum level approaches. It is
also integrated with the Materials Genome projects ongoing in our research
group. The work is highly collaborative and involves interaction with other
research groups in design, optimization, and modeling. A major focus of the
Advanced Materials Lab is the study of the role of interfaces in polymers. The
postdoc will also contribute to this larger effort as appropriate.

Experience with writing code for 3D finite element modeling and creating user subroutines
is essential. Solid knowledge of mechanics, fundamental modeling skills and
independent work ethic are required. Experience with polymers and composites is ideal.

 The research group is highly interactive encompassing synthesis,
characterization and modeling of polymers and other advanced material systems.
There is significant latitude in research explorations and opportunities to
assist with proposals and preparation of reports and interaction with research
sponsors. The postdoc will also have the opportunity to mentor junior graduate
and undergraduates students in topically similar projects. Candidates will also
be considered for ability to help manage the project across the multiple
investigators. Finally, publication of the work is of key importance.
Northwestern provides an excellent benefits package to postdoctoral fellows
including health, dental, vision and 401(k).

Applicants are requested to send their CV along with their availability (please include earliest start date in your email) to the following email address only:

Due to the volume of applications, individual
responses will only be given to a few top applicants. Thank you for considering this position.
