Applications are sought for multiple Post-Doctoral Research Associates at University of California, San Diego (USA) and Cardiff University (UK) and two PhDs (Cardiff) to join a very active cross-continental M2DO research lab. The primary research focus is to develop topology optimization for multiscale and multiphysics problems optimizing materials and structures. The research members are required to travel between US and UK regardless of their bases.  

Research experience in the following areas are required.

  • Topology optimization
  • Level set method
  • Sensitivity analysis
  • Computational methods for multiphysics problems, including finite element method (aeroelasticity, thermomechanical)
  • Homogenisation and multiscale modelling and optimization
  • Composite material optimization
  • Multidisciplinary design optimization
  • Large scale scientific computing and parallel computing
  • OOP software development (C++) in finite element method or optimization

Good team working skills and collaborative experience are essential.  More information about the current research activities of the lab can be found

Applications will be reviewed immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. If interested, postdoc applications based in Cardiff University can be made at

Postdoc applications based in UC San Diego can be applied by emailing (1) CV with publications list (2) one representative and most relevant paper (3) names and contacts for three referees to Dr H Alicia Kim ( with the subject: M2DO postdoc.

For PhD applications,

Dear Alicia,

   I have already submitted my application for the position in Cardiff University and would you inform me your decision if you have found my application?
