2 PhD Positions in Atomistic Simulations and In-situ SEM Experiments at the University of Vermont (USA)

Fred Sansoz's picture

Applications are invited for two doctoral research positions in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Vermont to begin immediately.

The successful students will work together with Prof. Frederic Sansoz on US Department of Energy-funded projects related to grain-boundary segregation and shear localization mechanisms in nanocrystalline alloys, with a focus on (1) large-scale Monte-Carlo and Molecular Dynamics (LAMMPS) simulations, including machine-learning interatomic potentials, or (2) In-situ tensile SEM and EBSD experiments, including electrochemical alloy synthesis. Applicants must have earned an MS degree and must meet minimum GPA/GRE/TOEFL requirements for Ph.D. admission.

Interested candidates should send a CV with publication list, a short description of research interests, a course transcript and names of three references from previous research positions, by email to:


Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until a suitable candidate is found. More information about the Sansoz group at UVM can be found at:
