Applications are invited from highly motivated researchers for two postdoctoral positions immediately available in the Multiscale Multiphysics Design Optimisation (M2DO) lab, led by H Alicia Kim.

Candidates must have a strong background in mathematical optimization, finite element method and computer programming, and be committed to applying rigorous mathematical tools to structural design and optimization. Experience or interest in developing numerical methods and/or large-scale high performance computing and collaborative software development is also desirable.

The postdocs will conduct research to develop a topology optimization method for engineering structures using the level set method.  In particular, (1) multiscale topology optimization via homogenization for integrated material-structure systems (2) topology optimization for coupled thermo-mechanical problems (3) topology optimization with uncertainties.  Within the scope of the lab's research interests, the Cardiff postdocs will have reasonable latitude in determining own research projects.

Experience in optimization, finite element method and C++ programming skills are essential.  Experience with open source programming and collaborative software development is desirable.

The posts are based in the Cardiff University and will enjoy working in a large M2DO lab situated in the School of Engineering, Cardiff University, UK and the Structural Engineering Department of the University of California, San Diego. Successful candidates would have a proactive and collaborative approach to research and travelling to the UC San Diego and collaborators is expected.

The posts are available immediately. The Cardiff postdoc positions are are fixed term of two years and the UCSD postdoc for one year.

Applications will be reviewed immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. Postdoc applications can be applied by emailing (1) CV with publications list (2) one representative and most relevant paper (3) names and contacts for three referees to Dr H Alicia Kim ( with the subject: M2DO postdoc.
