Postdoc positions in computational science at UIUC

Two postdoc positions in computational science are available at UIUC in the research group of Prof. Harley T. Johnson in the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering and the Materials Research Lab.  

The first position, available immediately, is in the area of machine learning based topology optimization for multiphysics problems.  The project will focus on design of surfaces for thermal- optical and thermo-mechanical applications.  The position will require the ability to work closely with national labs partners, and will be for a duration of two years, with the possibility of renewal.

The second position, with a start date in late spring or early summer 2022, is in the area of modeling the mechanics of interfaces in 2D materials.  The work will be based on atomistic modeling using empirical and electronic structure methods, and will involve close collaboration with other modelers and experimentalists at Illinois and elsewhere.  The position will be for a duration of two years, with the possibility of renewal.

Postdocs in the group participate in a highly collaborative research environment across UIUC and beyond, and develop professionally through mentorship, networking, and leadership opportunities.  More information about recent scholarly work from the group can be found here: .

For questions about the positions, or to submit an application for either position (consisting of a cover letter, a CV, and the names of three references), interested candidates may contact Prof. Johnson by email at  Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
