The Materials Theory Group at the School of Materials Engineering of Purdue University has a post-doctoral opening in the area of modeling of thermal transport in crystalline solids. The postdoc will use Boltzmann Transport Equation approach to investigate the phonon and electron thermal transport in crystalline solids with defects. Applicants with closely related theory background in physics, materials science, mechanical engineering, or other majors are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate is one who is strongly interested in the fundamental concepts of thermal transport and related computational modeling, and must have excellent programming skills. To apply, please send a curriculum vita with list of publications and the names and contact information of two references to Professor Anter El-Azab ( The cover letter should explain the relevance of the applicant background to the postdoc research topic above. This position is part of the DOE funded Energy Frontiers Research Center for Thermal Energy Transport under Irradiation (TETI), and the postdoc is expected to collaborate with a large team of theorists and experimentalists. The position is available now and will remain open until filled.

  • Purdue University is an EOE/AA employer. All qualified individuals, including minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
