Postdoctoral Appointee – Materials Science

Argonne National Laboratory

Lemont, IL

Job posting number: #7084707

Posted: September 3, 2021

Application Deadline: Open Until Filled

Job Description

The Applied Materials Division at Argonne National Laboratory has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral appointee. The candidate will conduct experiments and develop computational models of high temperature materials, including both metallic and ceramic systems. This position requires experience both in completing and interpreting high temperature material property tests and in developing corresponding computational models.

Safety, Security, and Environmental Protection: All activities, as they apply to work performed by self or by personnel under supervision, will be executed in compliance with ES&H and security responsibilities established by Argonne National Laboratory's ES&H policies, Safeguards and Security policies, work rules, and safe practices.

This position description documents the general nature and level of work but is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all activities, duties and responsibilities required of job incumbent. Consequently, job incumbent may be required to perform other duties as assigned.

Basic Requirements:

The prospective candidate is expected to hold a Ph.D. in materials science, mechanical engineering, or a closely related field.

Experience with both mechanical property testing and material modeling.

Experience running mechanical property test campaigns, ideally for high temperature materials, including strength, toughness, and creep tests.

Experience working with high temperature ceramics is desired.

Experience developing models for high temperature metallic and/or ceramic material systems is desired.

Basic background in statistics, sufficient to correlate and describe mechanical property test results for high temperature ceramic materials.

Strong skills in oral and written communications and presentations at all levels of the organization.

A successful candidate must have the ability to model Argonne’s Core Values: Impact, Safety, Respect, Integrity, and Teamwork.

What will put you ahead:

Experience with crystal plasticity finite element modeling, engineering ceramic strength models, and mechanistic ceramic material models.
