Two Department of Aerospace Engineering professors have had their research featured on the Iowa State University web site home page.

“Flight path to adventure” highlights the work of assistant professor Peng Wei and assistant professor Kristin Yvonne Rozier in developing a software prototype for the Federal Aviation Administration to manage low-altitude air traffic in the crowded skies of the United States. The project received a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation.

The story is one of a series of “adventure”-themed front page stories compiled by University News Service. It can be viewed on the university home page here.

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.
