Post-Doctoral Research Position in Multiscale Modeling
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position within the Micro and Nano Mechanics Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Northwestern University. The successful candidate will participate in a vibrant interdisciplinary research group and will be involved in projects addressing multiscale modeling to understand load-transfer mechanisms in hierarchical carbon-based nanostructures, as well as modeling of semiconducting nanowires to understand failure modes and size effects in electromechanical properties. In our research group, we believe in a combined experimental-computational approach; therefore, the candidate will be working in close collaboration with experimentalists to facilitate the understanding of experimental findings.
The position is available immediately for a period of one year and may be renewed thereafter. Actual start date is negotiable. Applications will be reviewed immediately and continue to be accepted until the positions are filled. Interested candidates should submit a CV, a cover letter describing their research experience and interests, and the names and email addresses of at least three references to Horacio D. Espinosa at the address below.
