Job Summary

CU Boulder's PSAAP Multidisciplinary Simulation Center for Micromorphic Multiphysics Porous and Particulate Materials Simulations Within Exascale Computing Workflows has an opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher to conduct extreme-scale simulations at the grain length-scale of fracture and fragmentation of bonded particulate materials with experimental validation and coordination with micromorphic multiscale models.

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.

Who We Are

In the past decade, AMReC has gained a worldwide reputation as a leader in the development of analysis and design methods for coupled multi-field problems, particularly in the context of aeroelasticity. The methods pioneered by AMReC faculty have become standard tools in academia and industry for analyzing complete aircraft configurations. This work is complemented by the development of high-performance parallel computing strategies. In past years, additional focus areas have included the development of models and design methods for multi-functional material systems and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). The latter two research areas are considered to be key components of next-generation technologies in aerospace, mechanical, and bio-medical engineering.

What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be

Successful applicants will have strong written and verbal communication skills, and interest in working with an interdisciplinary team to apply the following to real-world problems:
  • collaborative software development and devops (Git, continuous integration, etc.);
  • finite element, discrete element, and/or material-point discretizations;
  • computational mechanics/inelasticity; and
  • scalable data-intensive computing with in-situ data analytics.

What You Should Know

The position can start immediately and is remote-friendly, especially during the pandemic. 

Visa sponsorship is not available for this opportunity.
