Shuozhi Xu's picture

A research group led by Dr. Liming Xiong (currently at Iowa State and will be moving to NCSU) ( at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, is looking for full-support ($2600/month + tuition) graduate 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 dislocation plasticity, fracture, phase transformation, thermal transport, and mass transport, in a variety of engineering materials.

Self-motivated individuals who have research experience in one or more of the following areas are strongly encouraged to apply:

  • Atomistic simulations, Coarse-graining and Data-driven Finite Element
  • Dislocation Dynamics, Phase Field Method, XFEM, Crystal Plasticity Finite Element
  • Continuum and Micro-continuum Mechanics
  • Multiscale Materials Modeling
  • VASP, Gaussian, LAMMPS, and GULP
  • C++, OpenMPI, Python

To apply for the position, please submit a single PDF file via email ( with (i) your most recent CV; (ii) relevant research experience or publications if there are any, as well as (iii) a list of references. NCSU is located in Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, which forms one vertex of the world-famous Research Triangle Park (RTP). RTP is an innovative environment, both as a metropolitan area with one of the most diverse industrial bases in the world, and as a center of excellence promoting technology and science. The Research Triangle area is routinely recognized in nationwide surveys as one of the best places to live in the U.S. We enjoy outstanding public schools, affordable housing, farmer’s markets and festivals, and great weather- all in proximity to the mountains and the seashore.
