Ideal applicants should have strong background in solid mechanics and great interests in computational modeling & simulation using nonlocal meshfree/meshless methods, such as peridynamics.

Job opening at IIT Kharagpur

We are looking for an applicant with Master degree in Mechanical Engineering or allied fields with prior experience in finite element modelling and mechanical/damping characterization.  The position is for a period of up to 36 months, depending on the performance of the candidate. There might be possibility of registering for the MS (by research) or PhD program at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, if found suitable in the corresponding selection procedure of these programs.

Seeking Help from the community to continue employment in the United States (O 1 VISA)

This is probably not the right question for the forum.

I graduated with a Ph.D degree from Virginia Tech in 2018 and have been working in ASML San Diego since early 2019. I have exhausted all three H1-B lottery attempts (The visa is granted on random selection with 275000 applicants for 85000 spots).

As a results my only way out to continue employment in the US is to apply for an O-1 visa. However, my company attorney feels that my citation number is too low for a successful case.

Postdoc at Johns Hopkins University in x-ray phase contrast imaging

The research — We use x-ray phase contrast imaging (XPCI) to study deformation and fracture of materials under dynamic loading on microsecond and sub-microsecond time scales. For example, we might like to measure the change in pore size distribution of a granular material such as sandstone under impact loading.
