The Multiscale Computational Physics Lab in University at Buffalo (UB) has one Postdoctoral Research Associate opening, available immediately. The recruited Research Associate is expected to be a key player in developing an Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) model and a predictive framework/toolkit for customized ceramics matrix composite-type materials for hypersonic vehicles. The developed ICME model will also be used for additive manufacturing and involve an analysis on uncertainty quantification and a machine-learning algorithm for material design. The Research Associate will have the opportunity to mentor undergraduate and graduate students, and interact with a number of on-campus centers, such as the recently established Center for Hybrid Rocket Exascale Simulation Technology (CHREST) and the Center of Excellence in Materials Informatics. The initial position duration is 18-months, with renewal upon a satisfactory review. Interested applicants should send the package, including a cover letter, CV, sample publications, and names of at least three professional references. All applications should be submitted, as a single PDF document, to the Lab Director, Dr. James Chen at and Dr. David Salac at Review of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

    science, engineering science or a closely related field.

  • A proven track record of publications in leading journals.

  • US citizenship or US Permanent Residency (Green Card) is required at the time

    of hiring.

  • Experience in phase field simulation, damage mechanics, and/or
