Postdoctoral Position in Computational Mechanics

The Universityof New Mexico is seeking hire one ormore outstanding post-doctoral fellows with expertise in the area ofcomputational mechanics, particularly with the material-point method andparallel processing. Candidates should have an earned doctorate in AppliedMathematics, Mechanical Engineering or in a related field. Proficiency inF90/F95, is essential. C/C++ and knowledge of Python is a plus. Expertise insimulating fluid-structure interactions and related algorithm development isparticularly desirable, and familiarity with immersed-boundary techniques is aplus. The candidate must be familiar with high-performance computing.

Applicants mustprovide a detailed resume of experience and qualifications and the names of atleast three references.  Applications from women and minority candidatesare strongly encouraged. Applicants should submit the application materials to:Prof. Deborah Sulsky, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University ofNew Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131. It is recommended that applications be sentby e-mail to Prof. Sulsky, sulsky@math.unm.edu, followed by official copies.Evaluation of candidates will begin immediately, and will continue untilpositions are filled. Positions are available immediately.

       The positions support tworesearch projects: CMG: Collaborative Research On Multi-Scale Modeling ofArctic Ice, and PRISM: Center for Prediction of Reliability, Integrity andSurvivability of Microsystems. The NSF CMG(Collaboration in Mathematical Geosciences) is an interdisciplinary project to develop a multi-scale, computationalprocedure to predict ice motion, deformation and thickness under observedexternal forcing conditions and to verify the procedure using newly available datafrom NASA satellites. PRISM seeks to accelerate significantly theintegration of MEMS technologies into NNSA stockpile monitoring and weaponssystems through the use of predictive, validated science and petascalecomputing. http://www.nnsa.doe.gov/docs/newsreleases/2008/PR_2008-03-07_NA-08-14.htm
