About the Department
- PIRE Postdoctoral FellowshipsApplications are invited for postdoctoral positions at the Department of Mathematical Sciences in Carnegie Mellon University, partly funded by the NSF PIRE award Science at the Triple Point Between
Mathematics, Mechanics and Materials Science. The scientific scope is directed to issues in applied mathematics and mechanics, including partial differential equations, calculus of variations, and scientific computation, which arise from the materials sciences. Four principal areas are identified: Pattern formation from energy minimization, challenges in atomistic to continuum modeling and computing, prediction of hysteresis, and pattern dynamics and evolution of material microstructure.
The appointment is for three years starting on September 1, 2013 with two semesters spent at one or more of our international partner sites: International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA, Trieste, Italy), Max Planck Institute (Leipzig, Germany), University of Antwerp (Belgium), University of Bonn (Germany), University of Oxford (United Kingdom) and University of Warwick (United Kingdom).
Priority will be given to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Candidates should apply directly through MathJobs.Org. Processing of applications will begin on December 15, 2012.
