Postdoctoral Appointee \- Structural Mechanics
Requisition Number: 404748 Location: Lemont, IL
Functional Area: Research and Development Division: AMD\-Applied Materials Division
Employment Category: Temporary 6 Months or Greater Education Required: Doctorate Degree
Level \(Grade\): 700 Shift: 8:30 \- 5:00 Share: Facebook LinkedIn Twitter
The Applied Materials Division at Argonne National Laboratory has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral appointee\. The successful candidate will engage in programs involving expertise in materials science, structural mechanics, mechanics of materials, computational solid mechanics, and finite element analysis\. The candidate will work to develop models and design methods for high temperature structural metal alloys by developing new models to describe material behavior, developing design code rules from experimental data, conducting finite element analyses in support of structural designs\. These methods will be applied to the design of high temperature structural components for advanced nuclear reactors\.
Additional Responsibilities:
+ Develop new constitutive models for high temperature structural materials\.
+ Perform computational and analytical studies in support of programmatic needs\.
+ Investigate new concepts and applications in support of program development\.
+ Communicating results and implications of work to scientific community and sponsors\.
Minimum Education/Experience Requirements:
The prospective candidate is expected to hold a Ph\.D\. in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, nuclear engineering, materials science or a closely related field\. Working experience after Ph\.D\. is desirable\. A strong background in structural mechanics, mechanics of materials, computational solid mechanics, and finite element analysis are required\.
Additional Requirements:
+ Comprehensive knowledge of constitutive modeling of structural materials\.
+ Considerable knowledge finite element techniques and numerical methods\.
+ Considerable skills in using computer software and programming languages such as Matlab, Python/Numpy/Scipy, and C\+\+\.
+ Previous experience using finite element software, especially the MOOSE package and commercial codes like ANSYS and ABAQUS\.
+ Good skills in oral and written communications and presentations\.
+ These levels of knowledge and skills are typically achieved through formal education to the level of Ph\.D\. \(or equivalent\) in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, or an associated field\.
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\.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
