Ling Liu's picture

We have 1-2 PhD positions for modeling the fracture and failure in nuclear materials. The funding comes from a collaborative project involving five universities and one national lab.

The students will have opportunities to work with experimentalists and other computational experts at USU and from the national lab.


1. For applicants with no degree from a English-Speaking country: 

TOEFL >= 79 or IELTS >= 6 (and a minimum score of 5 on each subscale)

2. GRE verbal and quantitative scores (no minimum requirement)

3. Self-motivated

4. Strong interest in computational research

Preferred (not required):

1. Experience with finite element methods.

2. Experience with scientific computing.

3. Experience with fracture mechanics.

Ideally, the students will start in Fall 2016. Though the positions will be open until filled.

Interested applicants should send an email to with your CV. Emphasize your strength if there is any.
