Ph.D. Positions in Mechanics and Materials at the University of Houston

Shailendra's picture

We have open Ph.D. positions in my group at the University of Houston (UH) this Fall or Spring 2022. The general area of research is the mechanics of material failure. Of particular interest, is understanding how microstructures influence damage and fracture processes in advanced materials including metals and polymers. We formulate theoretical frameworks to assess and predict material behaviors at different length-scales via computational modeling and simulations. We closely collaborate with experimental groups. Our emerging interest is in adopting machine-learning approaches for these problems. 

The applicant should (ideally) have a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering or a related field and should demonstrate a strong understanding of solid mechanics. Knowledge of discrete element modeling/ granular mechanics/ finite elements, and constitutive theories are desirable.

Please email me ( your CV and a 1-page cover letter. The cover letter should clarify how your research interest and background are aligned with the research area described above. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply. The University of Houston is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
