Two PhD positions in computational mechanics at the University of Tennessee

Timothy Truster's picture

Two PhD positions are currently available in the Computational Laboratory for the Mechanics of Interfaces at the University of Tennessee - Knoxville ( Research topics are in the following areas:


1. Modeling of aluminum alloys using dislocation density based crystal plasticity methods.

2. Fracture in composite materials using a Discontinuous Galerkin method for debonding


Candidates should possess a master's degree in civil, mechanical, or other related engineering field at the time of enrollment at UTK. A strong background in continuum mechanics, finite element modeling, nonlinear constitutive modeling, and/or computer programming in MATLAB and FORTRAN is desired.

If interested, contact Dr. Truster directly at Please include your CV along with a brief description of prior research experiences and how your interests align with the research conducted at CLMI. In your CV, include: GPA, GRE test scores, and publication list.
