Physics: Computational, Physics: Fluid Mechanics and Dynamics
Looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a background in theory and simulation to carry out analytical and computational studies on the behavior of complex fluids and polymeric materials. In particular, the focus of the research group encompasses modeling the following phenomena: flow of multi-phase fluids in confined geometries, bio-inspired materials, self-propelled soft materials, chemo-mechanical behavior of polymeric gels and nanocomposites, mechano-mutable materials, structurally tailored gels, programmable materials, active and adaptive materials, interactions between simple cellular objects, and self-healing materials. The candidate must have a background in theory and simulation, and knowledge of either statistical mechanics, fluid dynamics, mechanics of solids or polymer physics is highly desirable. Position is available immediately. Please send resume to Prof. Anna C. Balazs, Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Department, 4420 Bayard Street, 313 Schenley Place, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA 15213. Prefer to receive information by e-mail. E-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Medical Benefits covered.
