The University of Tulsa Department of Mechanical Engineering is searching for a postdoctoral researcher to support our recently awarded a U.S. Department of Defense project to develop novel multifunctional SiC/C composites.  This project will integrate materials synthesis and manufacturing with fracture mechanics, macro- and micro-scale materials characterization, and thermal property characterization. The results will be used to develop a broad understanding of the manufacturing and performance of these advanced high temperature materials.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Conducting experimental and computational research as it relates to developing novel high temperature composites.
  • Integrating processing models using traditional and AI/ML approaches with experimental results.
  • Overseeing graduate student research as it relates to project goals and meeting project milestones.
  • Working with a diverse team of co-PIs, technicians, and graduate students.
  • Writing reports and creating technical presentations.
  • Presenting at conferences and leading publication efforts

Minimum Qualifications:

Doctoral degree in engineering field. Strong project management skills and a superior publication record.

Preferred Qualifications:

Experience with AI/ML methods for materials discovery.

Experience with experimental characterization of ceramic matrix composites.
