Refractory metals and alloys have a wide range of applications from nuclear energy to aerospace applications where thermal-mechanical properties are of critical importance. Thus, there is a need to understand the physical origins of the properties of refractory metals and alloys. CSU Mechanical Engineering is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to study and develop physically-based multiscale models of the thermal-mechanical behavior of refractory bcc metals and their alloys. The successful candidate will have expertise in modeling material behavior using one or more simulation methodologies including density functional theory, molecular dynamics, dislocation dynamics and crystal plasticity. The candidate must be able to learn additional methodologies and develop multiscale models of the behavior of this class of materials. Candidates must also have excellent written and oral communication skills, and be able to work independently and as part of a multidisciplinary research group.
