Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Meso-scale modeling of materials processing Located at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, the U.S Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is the Army’s central laboratory. Its diverse assortment of unique facilities and dedicated workforce of government and private sector partners make up the largest source of world-class integrated research and analysis in the Army. Exceptional post-doctoral candidates are sought in the area of meso-scale modeling to approach a variety of materials processing problems. The research activities will include process modeling of additive manufacturing, including recycled materials and variable feedstocks, and modeling coupling magnetic and/or electric fields to traditional processing methods. This research opportunity aligns with the ARL S&T in the Materials Research Campaign: Manufacturing at the Point of Need. Eligibility: Applicants should have received a Ph.D. degree in Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering or a closely related discipline. Candidates should demonstrate a strong academic background with research experience in meso-scale modeling, as evidenced by recent presentations and peer-reviewed publications. U.S. citizens only. Experience with Monte Carlo and phase field modeling is highly desirable. Keywords: Monte Carlo, magnetic field, additive manufacturing Click here for more information
