Postdoctoral Appointee – Computational Plasticity

A postdoctoral position at Sandia National Labs in Livermore, CA is available for an applied mechanics engineer with a strong background in computational constitutive model development. The work will support our current projects in the areas of continuum plasticity and failure modeling. The applicant will also be 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.

The Mechanics of Materials Department performs experimental and analytical studies to understand the mechanical behavior of materials. Our experimental work covers the entire discovery-characterization–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 varies from atomic to continuum scales corresponding to the requirements of Sandia applications. The accuracy of models for specific applications is validated by experimental data. Numerical codes are developed to allow the implementation of material models in high-performance computing simulations.
