Two PhD Openings in Computational Mechanics at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology

harrison_hanfei's picture

The Division of Physical Sciences and Engineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) invites applications for a PhD Student in Mechanical Engineering at the Composite and Heterogeneous Material Analysis and Simulation Laboratory (COHMAS).

We seek two highly motivated candidates who will be involved in one of the directions below:

1. The modeling and numerical simulation of electrical and mechanical properties of nano-particles (such as carbon nanotubes and graphene) composites.

2. Coupling the non-local mechanics (for example, peridynamics) with the classical (local) continuum mechanics for objective simulations of material failures, which involve the damage and the macro-fracture.

The successful candidate must hold a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics or Computer Science. A strong background in theoretical mechanics (continuum mechanics, up scaling techniques, mechanical behavior of engineering materials), applied mathematics and high performance computing is expected.

More details are attached below.
