Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Mesoscale Modeling of Nuclear Fuel at Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, NYU-Poly; Brooklyn, NY
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the Computational Mechanics Laboratory at NYU-Poly. The selected postdoctoral fellow will participate in a vibrant interdisciplinary research group and will be involved in a research effort which aims at modeling the behavior of nuclear fuel under extreme conditions. Computational mechanics and theory will be the principal tool of investigation.
Requirements: 1. PhD. in mechanical engineering, materials science, computational materials science or a related field. 2. Experience in at least two of the following areas: finite element modeling, Monte Carlo, phase field or molecular mechanics modeling. 3. Experience in scientific computing (Fortran, C, or C++ programming, parallel computing, and Unix/Linux computing environments). 4. Strong verbal and written communication skills. 5. Demonstrated ability to work independently in a multidisciplinary research environment.
Note: The initial appointment will be for one year, with a possibility of renewal contingent upon the availability of continuing funding and satisfactory performance.
How To Apply: Please submit by email a single attachment that includes your CV, a brief statement of your research interests, and the contact information for two references to:
