We have one postdoctoral position, available in October 2009, in the general
area of fragmentation and dynamic failure. The specific interest is in the timescales and lengthscales associated with the interactions of failure modes in materials. A background in modeling and simulation is essential, while some experience with shock physics is desirable. The successful candidate will become part of a highly collegial and diverse research group with activities in nanomaterials, planetary science and biomechanics. The work involves collaborative research with the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, and US citizenship is required. If you are
I have one postdoctoral position, available immediately, in the general area of mesoscale modeling. The specific interest is in the development of computationally tractable models that incorporate the appropriate lengthscales and that can be used for microstructural design. The work is in conjunction with research groups involved in the development of materials for impact applications. Examples of topics of interest include the processes of dynamic failure in specific microstructures, and the development of physics-based models that account for grain size, grain size distribution, grain rotation and texture.

I am looking for two postdocs in the analytical and computational modeling areas. One position will focus on the theoretical and computational modeling of microstructure-modulated failure processes, with an emphasis on nanocrystalline materials. The other will focus on hypervelocity impact fragmentation problems, including planetary scale impact and fragmentation. The latter position is available immediately, and the former is available as of June 1, 2008.
If you are interested, please send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your CV and the names of at least two references. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. The Johns Hopkins University is an EEO/AA Employer.
