Postdoctoral Position at Penn State University in Multiscale Computational Dynamics

Joseph P. Cusumano's picture

We have an immediate opening in the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics for a postdoctoral research associate in multiscale modeling and computational mechanics. The focus of this position is on the modeling, simulation, and analysis of the nonlinear evolution of coupled macro/microstructure in failure processes, with an emphasis toward structural health monitoring. Coupled-field models using continuum damage variables will be used to study the fundamental spatiotemporal features of damage evolution, particularly regarding the nature and origin of unpredictability in damage processes. The candidate must have a solid general background in theoretical mechanics and dynamics, and be familiar with nonlinear finite element analysis
and adaptive mesh refinement. Experience in dealing with fully dynamic analyses is a must.
Programming on UNIX platforms and in C++ strongly preferred. The position is for one year with the possibility of renewal.

Interested candidates should contact Joseph Cusumano, Professor of Engineering Science & Mechanics,, 814-865-3179.
