A PhD or postdoc position is available in computational multiscale modelling of geological materials at computational poromechanics research group at Columbia University. Interested candidates please visit http://gradengineering.columbia.edu/onlineapplication for general information. Answers of general admission question can be found at http://gradengineering.columbia.edu/frequently-asked-questions-2.
Ideally, the successful candidates should have (1) a master degree in civil engineering, applied mechanics, geomechanics, applied mathematics, or other related disciplines, (2) solid background on computational mechanics and reasonable mathematical skills (e.g. linear algebra, partial differential equations), (3) be proficient in python, C++, Java and/or FORTRAN code developments, and (4) possess excellent communication skills. Knowledge in geostatistics, multiscale modeling and functional analysis is a plus, but not required.
