Post-Doctoral Position – Modeling of Thermal Transport in Crystalline Solids

The Materials Theory Group at the School of Materials Engineering of Purdue University has a post-doctoral opening in the area of modeling of thermal transport in crystalline solids. The postdoc will use Boltzmann Transport Equation approach to investigate the phonon and electron thermal transport in crystalline solids with defects. Applicants with closely related theory background in physics, materials science, mechanical engineering, or other majors are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate is one who is strongly interested in the fundamental concepts of thermal transport and related computational modeling, and must have excellent programming skills. To apply, please send a curriculum vita with list of publications and the names and contact information of two references to Professor Anter El-Azab (aelazab@purdue.edu). The cover letter should explain the relevance of the applicant background to the postdoc research topic above. This position is part of the DOE funded Energy Frontiers Research Center for Thermal Energy Transport under Irradiation (TETI), and the postdoc is expected to collaborate with a large team of theorists and experimentalists. The position is available now and will remain open until filled.

EEO/AA Policy:

Purdue University is an EOE/AA employer. All qualified individuals, including minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.

Post-Doctoral Position – Physics of Thermal Transport in Crystalline Solids

The Materials Theory Group at the School of Materials Engineering of Purdue University has a post-doctoral opening in the area of physics of thermal transport in crystalline solids. The postdoc will use Boltzmann Transport Equation (BTE) approach to investigate the phonon and electron thermal transport in crystalline solids with lattice defects. A solid state physics background is highly desired for this position but applicants with a strong, closely related theory background from materials science or other engineering disciplines will be considered. The ideal candidate is one who is strongly interested in the fundamental theoretical concepts related to thermal transport and related computational modeling, and must have excellent programming skills in Fortran and/or C++. For inquiry please send an email to Professor Anter El-Azab (aelazab@purdue.edu). The position will remain open until filled. Interested candidates can send a curriculum vita with list of publications, a one-page or less statement of research interests and the names of at least two references, with their email addresses and telephone numbers to the provided email. The Materials Theory Group performs theoretical and computational research in the areas of mesoscale plasticity and dislocation dynamics, radiation effects in materials, microstructure evolution, phase field method development, phonon and electron thermal transport in crystalline solids, and computational methods for materials science and mechanics. The group has over ten graduate students and postdocs, with a wide range of collaborations.
