We have an open PhD position starting in the Fall semester 2019 at the Computational Laboratory for the Mechanics of Interfaces at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The research topic centers upon the modeling of texture evolution during processing conditions of titanium alloys using dislocation density based crystal plasticity. Efficient computational algorithms will be pursued to couple the specimen/part scale and the mesoscale.
Candidates should possess a master’s degree in civil, mechanical, or other related engineering field at the time of enrollment at UT. A strong background in computational mechanics, materials science of metals, and/or computer programming in MATLAB and FORTRAN is desired. US citizenship or residency is also desired, though not required.
If interested, contact Timothy Truster directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your CV along with a brief description of prior research experiences and how your interests align with the research conducted at CLMI. In your CV, include: GPA, GRE test scores, and publication list. Minimum GRE scores for admission are Q = 155 and Q+V = 300. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted after October 3.
