Computational Modeling Position available at Sandia National Labs, Livermore, CA

Jonathan Zimmerman's picture

The Mechanics of Materials Department performs experimental and analytical studies to understand the mechanical behavior of materials. Our experimental work covers the entire discoverycharacterization-validation spectrum. Motivated by observations, we develop models to simulate material responses under various loading and environmental conditions. The fidelity of our models and simulations vary from atomic to continuum scales corresponding to the requirement of Sandia applications. Accuracy of the models for specific applications is validated by experimental data. Numerical codes are developed to allow implementation of the material models for high performance computing simulations.

An applied mechanics engineer with a background in computational constitutive modeling development is sought to participate in our general continuum and multiscale model development effort. The applicant is also expected to implement models into Sandia computer codes for high performance computing simulations. In addition, the candidate will collaborate with structural analysts to apply these advanced models to Sandia applications.


- PhD degree in Applied Mechanics or a related field.

- Significant experience in constitutive model development, multiscale modeling, numerical modeling, and computer code development.

- Strong communication skills and ability to function in a team environment with other developers, analysts and our customers.

- U.S. Citizenship and the ability to obtain a DOE (Q) security clearance is required.


- Knowledge of material science, parallel computing and experience with large, general-purpose computer codes.

- Exposure to Micro/Nano systems principles and applications.
