Postdoctoral Position in Phase Field Modeling of Oxide Film Growth

The Materials Theory Group at the School of Materials Engineering of Purdue University has a postdoctoral opening in the area of phase field modeling of oxide film growth. The postdoc will use the phase field approach to investigate the growth of metal oxide films in an oxidizing environment, emphasizing the film grain morphology, composition, and stress distribution. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in phase field modeling with elastic effects and excellent computational skills. For inquiry, please email Professor Anter El-Azab (aelazab@purdue.edu). This position is part of a collaborative project with a materials research and software development company, and it will be available as early as April 1, 2021. The position will remain open until filled. Interested candidates can send a curriculum vita with list of publications, about half a page statement of research interests, and the names and contact information of at least two references. The Materials Theory Group performs theoretical and computational research in the areas of dislocation dynamics and mesoscale plasticity, radiation effects in materials, phase field method and applications to microstructure evolution in materials, phonon and electron thermal transport in crystalline solids, and computational methods for materials science and mechanics.
