The University of Tulsa Department of Mechanical Engineering is searching for a postdoctoral researcher to support our recently awarded U.S. Department of Energy SunShot award for GEN3 CSP Collectors (https://www.energy.gov/eere/solar/generation-3-concentrating-solar-power-systems-gen3-csp).TU will develop a comprehensive particle and substrate durability model that will enable improved understanding of the performance of high-temperature components for the particle-based pathway. The team will advance existing research capabilities in erosion, corrosion, fracture mechanics, macro- and micro-scale materials characterization, and thermal and optical property characterization. The results will be used to develop a broad understanding of mechanical durability that can be used to determine component lifetime and performance degradation models.
Conducting experimental and computational research as it relates to erosion, corrosion, materials characterization for GEN3 solar thermal systems. This includes developing lifetime durability models.
Overseeing graduate student research as it relates to project goals and meeting project milestones and go/no-go points.
Working with a diverse team of co-PIs, technicians, and graduate students.
Writing quarterly reports and creating quarterly technical presentations.
Doctoral degree in engineering field, appropriate experience, and expertise. Strong project management skills and a superior publication record.
Please send your CV and cover letter to email@example.com. This is a 1-year position with the possibility of renewal.
