The Post-Doctorate Research Associate (PDRA) role is focused on the independent technical delivery of and leadership in the development of projects/activities related to solid-state AM within CAAAM, primarily focusing on the Solid State Metals Additive Manufacturing (SSMAM). The PDRA will work with the faculty across various departments with an inter-disciplinary approach to AM. The primary responsibility of this position is to fully exploit and further develop SSMAM through the MELD technology for alloys such as steels, aluminum-base, nickel-base, titanium-base, as well as metal-matrix composites. The PDRA will be expected to focus on understanding the fundamentals of this solid-state AM process and its influence on microstructure and properties of these alloys. The selected candidate is expected to have a strong background in solid-state alloy processing using friction stir welding (FSW) and/or friction stir processing (FSP), and microstructure-property relationships in these materials. Additionally, the candidate is also expected to have a strong background in physical and mechanical metallurgy of advanced alloys. A background in elasticity, plasticity, computational mechanics, and/or process modeling would be beneficial to the position. The position is also expected to provide technical expertise and support to graduate and undergraduate students, assist/lead preparation of research proposals and scientific/technical papers and presentations.
