Greetings from Lexington, Kentucky! We are an interdisciplinary research group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kentucky. We specialize in the modeling, computation and simulation of materials across multiple length- and time-scales. Our missions include advancing fundamental understanding of materials under different operating environments and making contributions to material design and discovery for diverse applications. The impact of our work lies in sustainable energy, batteries, aerospace/ocean/civil structures, protection materials/structures, among others.

The research group has a couple of fully-funded openings for PhDs and several openings for MSs, starting from Fall 2022. The deadline of application is March 15th. Experience in the related areas is NOT a must. However, solid backgrounds in mechanics, mathematics and programming are strongly preferred. Specifically, students with experience or strong interest in one of the following areas are highly encouraged to apply:

• Atomistic modeling and simulation;

• Finite element analysis;

• Structural optimization;

• Uncertainty quantification;

• C++/MATLAB/Python programming.

For inquires, please contact Prof. Xingsheng Sun via email ( More details about the research interest can be found at our group website
