Two Ph.D. Positions in Computational Nanomechanics at the University of Vermont

Fred Sansoz's picture

UPDATE 11/03/2014: THESE TWO OPENINGS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR 2014. PLEASE CHECK BACK NEXT YEAR.

Positions for two doctoral students in mechanical engineering are available immediately in the Sansoz Research Group (http://www.uvm.edu/~fsansoz) at the University of Vermont located in Burlington, Vermont (USA).

Our team is small but dynamic, and has become one of the leading groups in atomistic simulation and multiscale modeling of nanomaterials over the past 10 years. Our work is published in high-impact factor journals in materials science and engineering. In addition to research, all students are encouraged to participate to national conferences and meetings, teach and mentor other students, and become active citizens of our graduate program. The group alumni have taken leadership positions in both academia and industry.

Position 1:  Atomistic simulation of plastic deformation and fracture in nanotwinned materials
Desired background: Atomistic simulation and/or multiscale modeling of deformation in metallic materials and polycrystals

Position 2:  Nanoscale mechanics, heat conduction and oxidation of SiC fiber networks
Desired background: Finite element modeling and/or multiscale modeling of woven or random fiber networks

The start date could be either Fall 2014 or Spring 2015, and the positions will be open until filled. The candidates must have already earned, or should soon earn, an MS in Solid Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, or a closely-related field.

To apply for these positions, please send an email to frederic.sansoz@uvm.edu with the following documents: A complete CV, a list of references, and a written justification as to why you qualify for Position 1 or Position 2.
