The Center for Metal Casting Research at Purdue University has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral researcher in the area of numerical modeling of metal casting processes. The successful candidate should have a strong background in coupled transport phenomena and in the numerical analysis of solidification (or related processes).
Applications will be reviewed beginning immediately and the position will remain open until filled, which is expected to be by April 30, 2014. Purdue University is an equal opportunity/equal access/affirmative action employer.
The Purdue Center for Metal Casting Research (PCMC) is the focal point of research in the science and engineering of solidification processing. The goal of the center is to perform fundamental research in solidification science while working with industry to advance commercial metal casting practices and develop new commercial solidification processes.
Models for funding casting related research projects
The mission and vision of the center are to produce technologically relevant solidification science and graduates who have unique research experience with industrial context. The span of research and development will support broad industry needs in four thrust areas: lightweight shape castings, solidification processing of wrought alloys, investment casting, and specialty alloys and processes.
