Postdoctoral position at University of Pittsburgh

The Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh anticipates an opening for a postdoctoral associate starting September 2010. The position’s primary area of research will focus on mechanics of the microforming processes and characterizing the thermomechanics of deformation at micrometer length-scales.

The initial appointment is for one year with potential to extend, subject to the availability of funds. A strong background in solid mechanics with expertise in computational crystal plasticity methodologies and finite element modeling of manufacturing processes is preferred. Expertise in analytical electronmicroscopy (TEM, SEM and HRTEM) and mechanical characterization is desirable.

The candidate isexpected to be independent, self-motivated and posses a proven record of high-quality publications. A doctoral degree in mechanical engineering or materials science is preferred. We will be reviewing applications immediately on receipt. Interested candidates should forward their CV, two representativepublications and contact details of at least two references to (electronic submissions are preferred):
