Postdoctoral Research Associate

A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in modeling of dynamic failure in heterogeneous and anisotropic materials. The research will involve development of peridynamic models for brittle and ductile failure. The position requires a Ph.D. degree in computational mechanics or related engineering discipline. Strong background in solid mechanics and fracture, mechanics of composites, computational modeling of multiphysics phenomena, and proficiency in code development in Fortran and C++ are expected. The position is for one year, extendable to extra years based on performance. The successful candidate will join a thriving research department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at UNL in Lincoln, Nebraska, a city ranked among the top in the US for being the happiest city, best to raise a family, shortest commutes, cleanest air, lowest unemployment, and with a cost of living below the national average.

Candidates should email a cover letter, CV, two representative publications, and names and contact information for two references to: with the subject line: Post-doctoral position.

Starting date for this appointment is July 1st, 2014.
