Postdoc Position in machine learning informed materials design at Johns Hopkins University

I am seeking a motivated and qualified postdoctoral fellow with expertise in the field of machine learning (ML)-informed materials design. In particular, the postdoctoral fellow will work closely in collaboration with other experimentalists and modelers within the newly established AI for Materials Design (AIMD) facility at JHU for the design of new refractory multi-principal-element alloys (RMPEAs) by identifying their processing-structure-property-performance relationships for high-strain-rate and high-temperature-rate applications.

Postdoctoral Position at the University of Connecticut in Modeling of Mechanics of Polymer Matrix Composites at Atomic Scales

The Computational Materials and Mechanics Group (CMMG) at the University of Connecticut has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher in the modeling of mechanical behavior polymer matrix composites across multiple scales starting immediately.

The postdoctoral researcher will use classical molecular dynamics simulations and machine learning algorithms to investigate the links between atomic-scale microstructure and the properties/behavior of polymer matrix composites under high-rate deformation.
