Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
Develop and apply state-of-the-art software to support High-Computational-Effort Modeling and Simulation. Research and develop software engineering for the design and development of multiscale constitutive modeling, and finite element analysis, and physiological modeling. Study the mechanical behavior of various materials, quantify structure-property relations and design experimentation and process-structure-property-performance quantification.
Ability to work independently, publish in archival journals, write research proposals, and present in a public forum.
A PhD in Biological/Biomedical/Mechanical Engineering or related field
Experience in finite element analysis, multiscale modeling, physiological modeling, non-linear solid mechanics, software development, biomedical applications, mechanics of materials, thermodynamics, internal state variables, hydrogen embrittlement, and plasticity.
Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
Skills associated with a PhD in Biological/Biomedical/Mechanical Engineering or related field. Experience with one or more programming language (e.g. C++, Python, Fortran) and knowledge of software packages such as Abaqus, python, and Matlab.
Instructions for Applying:
Apply online and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae with the names, addresses, email and phone numbers of three references that can comment on candidate's capabilities, copy of transcript(s) and two (2) letters of recommendation.
