As a Systems Engineer at Rockwell Collins, Shaun Humes (BS 2012) spends his days solving puzzles to ensure that transportation aircrafts are able to maintain communication, navigation, surveillance, and air traffic management performance worldwide. He says, “My degree allowed me to explore the many facets of the field via both class room and extracurricular activities. The faculty and students all made up an educational environment that gave me the knowledge, experience, network and confidence to pursue and succeed in a career as I have always dreamed.”

Post-Doctoral Position

Post-Doctoral Position in Experimental Phase Transitions and Plasticity Under High Pressure

Post-doctoral position at Iowa State University is available starting Summer/Fall 2019 to perform experimental research on coupled plastic flow, phase transformations, and other structural changes under high pressure and torsion of a sample in rotational diamond anvil cell. Experience with in situ high pressure experimentation and/or x-ray characterization of stresses and structural changes in materials at the micron scale is desired. Close collaboration with theoretical / computational collaborators and with Ames Laboratory of DoE is expected. Please email your application to Prof. Valery Levitas vlevitas@iastate.edu.
