Fayetteville State University is a constituent institution of the University of North Carolina and the second oldest public institution of higher education in the state. Founded in 1867 as the Howard School for the education of African Americans, today FSU serves a growing student body of approximately 6,000 and ranks among the nation’s most diverse campus communities.
Primary purpose of this position is to perform research in Phase Transformations and Mechanical Properties of materials. The successful candidate for this position will develop a continuum model of solid materials fracturing, conduct computer simulations of mechanical behavior of materials in conditions of cyclic loading, analyze mechanical properties of materials, and visualize the material’s structure.
This position is in Dr. A. Umantsev’s research group in the Department of Chemistry and Physics at Fayetteville State University. The group is a part of the Center for Hierarchical Materials Design (CHiMaD) at Northwestern University in Chicago, which is funded through the Grant from National Institute of Standards
and Technology (DOC NIST). The mission of CHiMaD is to conduct research in the framework of the White House Materials Genome Initiative (MGI).
Minimum Education And Experience Requirements:
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in Materials Science and experience in computer simulations, multi-scale modeling, and visualization of materials processes.
