PhD Position - Computational Crystal Plasticity

mkasemer's picture

The Advanced Computational Materials Engineering Laboratory (ACME Lab), in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Alabama is seeking qualified candidates for an open PhD position. This position is open to US citizens only.

The position will focus on the development of a reduced-order crystal plasticity model through the use of machine learning methods. Sets of training data will be generated by crystal plasticity finite element simulations, using the in-house code FEPX. Of particular interest is the relationship between crystallographic texture and the macroscopic yield surface of the material. This will then be extended to include evolution of the yield surface due to hardening.

Students with a BS or MS in Mechanical Engineering or any related STEM field (e.g., physics or mathematics) are welcome to apply. Some programming experience is desired. Hiring is for August 2021, though the exact start date is negotiable.

See the attached flyer for more information. Contact Dr. Kasemer for any additional information regarding this position, via either email ( or telephone (814-431-9080).
