Post-doc position in Mechanics of Materials at University of Houston

Shailendra's picture

A one-year post-doc position is available in our research group at the University of Houston with a start date of 1 September 2021. 

We are interested in understanding how microstructural aspects govern material failure. Our approach relies on formulating theoretical frameworks that are informed by experiments and implementing them computationally.

Join us to expand in more novel directions:

(i) Data-driven plasticity and failure;

(ii) Phase-field approaches to plasticity and failure;

(iii) Granular mechanics (Discrete element modeling/ Enriched continuum modeling).

As a post-doc, you should have a strong background in continuum mechanics and experience in one or more of the topics mentioned above.

To apply, please email me your CV and a 1-page research statement at The research statement should capture key contributions of your current/past research and briefly indicate your future research direction.


Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply. The University of Houston is an EEO/AA employer.
