PhD and Postdoc Positions in computational poromechanics at Columbia University

I am seeking a Ph.D. student and/or postdoc associate for a number of projects related to high-strain-rate plasticity and phase-transition of porous media. 

Candidates with demonstrated experience in computational mechanics, poromechanics, and implementation of codes in C++ and python are strongly preferred. Basic understanding of tensor calculus and continuum mechanics is required for the Ph.D. position. Students with track-records of academic achievements are encouraged to apply.
