Open PhD positions in the general field of theoretical, applied, and computational mechanics of materials

Shuozhi Xu's picture

A research group at Iowa State University is looking for fully funded research assistants in the general field of theoretical, applied, and computational mechanics of materials. Research topics will fall into a broad area of modeling and simulation of mechanical and transport behaviors, such as plasticity, fracture, phase transformation, thermal transport, and mass transport, in a variety of engineering materials.

In particular, self-motivated individuals who have research experience in one or more of the following areas are strongly encouraged to apply for the full-support Ph.D. positions in our group:

  • Continuum Mechanics
  • Finite Element Modeling, XFEM
  • Atomistic Simulation (LAMMPS, DL_POLY, GULP)
  • First-principle calculations
  • Dislocation Dynamics
  • Phase Field Method
  • Crystal Plasticity
  • Multiscale Modeling of Materials
  • FORTRAN, C++, OpenMPI

To apply for the positions, please submit a single PDF file via email (lmxiong@iastate.edu) with (i) your most recent CV; (ii) a transcript; (iii) relevant research experience or publications if there are any, as well as (iv) a list of references.
