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
