The Computational Science and Engineering Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is seeking highly qualified candidates for one post-doctoral research associate position in the Center for Simulation of Advanced Rockets.

The successful candidate will be a key part of a team that is developing and implementing adaptive, multiscale, high-performance (parallel) computational algorithms for numerical solutions of chemo-thermo-mechanical PDE’s with emphasis on complex heterogeneous materials, such as energetic materials, composites, etc. All computations, including preprocessing and visualization, will be performed on high-performance parallel computers. The successful candidate must be able to interact with faculty and students from various departments.


  1. Ph.D. in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Physics or related engineering or science discipline
  2. Familiarity with numerical analysis, scientific computing, and numerical linear algebra
  3. Experience in parallel programming (MPI)
  4. Knowledge of numerical methods (finite element methods, multigrid methods, domain decomposition methods, iterative solvers, etc.) and computational nonlinear mechanics

Close Date:

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.


Interested applicants should send a CV with a cover letter, names of at least three references, and a summary of recent work. All applications should be submitted electronically (paperless process) as a single PDF document to:
