The Computational Dynamics and Design Lab (CDDL) at Mississippi State University is currently looking to hire for one or more Post-Doctoral positions. The projects will involve the development and implementation of advanced finite element schemes for nonlinear fluid and/or structural systems. Phenomena of interest include turbulent and free-surface flows within the context of fluid dynamics, and large deformation structural response with material nonlinearity and high strain-rate mechanics. Finite element analysis will involve the use of high-order discretization with the development of adjoint-based error-metrics to drive hp-adaptivity for large-scale systems.

Opportunities also exist to collaborate with other ongoing activities at CDDL, including the development of cut-cell (immersed/unfitted) finite element methods for topology optimization of nonlinear thermoelastic structures and the study of nonlinear dynamics (bifurcation, limit-cycle-oscillations and chaos) arising from fluid-structure interactions.

Applications for these positions are sought from highly motivated researchers with a PhD in Engineering/Physics/Applied Mathematics with strong mathematical and programming skills. Candidates with the following skills and experience will be considered favorably:

  • Prior experience with advanced finite element analysis
  • Proficiency with C/C++ programing
  • Exposure to HPC software, preferably libMesh, PETSc and SLEPc.
  • Strong writing skills and experience with LaTex

Interested candidates can email the following items as a single PDF to Prof. Manav Bhatia (

  • a cover letter,
  • a statement of research interests,
  • a CV including the contact information of three references,
  • representative publications

Please reference in your cover letter when
applying for or inquiring about this job announcement.
