We are looking for research assistants in the field of solid mechanics, computational mechanics, computational materials science and engineering. Research topics will fall into a broad area of modeling and simulation of mechanical and transport behaviors, such as plasticity, fracture, phase transformation, thermal transport, or mass transport, in a variety of materials.

In particular, self-motivated individuals who have research experience in one or more of the following areas are strongly encouraged to apply for the full-support Ph.D. positions in our group:

  • Continuum Mechanics
  • Finite Element Modeling, Atomistic Simulation
  • Dislocation Dynamics, Phase Field Method, XFEM, Crystal Plasticity
  • Multiscale Modeling of Materials
  • FORTRAN, C++, OpenMPI


To apply for the position, please submit a single PDF file via email ( with (i) your most recent CV; (ii) a transcript; (iii) relevant research experience or publications if there is any, as well as (iv) a list of references. Please name your file “FirstName.LastName.pdf”.
