Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.

Post-Doctoral Scholar:  We currently have two open post-doctoral positions.

Job Description
The Department of Mechanical Engineering, Colorado School of Mines (Mines) is looking for two Post-Doctoral Scientists in Mechanical, Materials Science, Applied Physics.

Position 1
   A postdoctoral position is available in the area of corrosion and high temperature oxidation of additively manufactured ternary alloys. A background in metallurgy and corrosion required. Candidate musth have a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, or Applied Physics, with experimental expertise in high temperature corrosion.
   Requirements:
      1) Must be a U.S. Citizen
      2) Ph.D. in Materials Science or a field related to metallurgy and corrosion
      3) Experimental experience with high temperature corrosion
      4) Experience metallurgical techniques and analysis
      5) Good verbal, writing, and communication skills.

 

Position 2
   A postdoctoral position in available in the area of multiscale computational modeling of phase formation and evolution during corrosion and oxidation of additively manufactured ternary alloys. The candidates should have a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, or Applied Physics, with expertise in density functional theory and/or phase-field modeling of phase diagram calculations and nano/microstructural evolutions.

Requirements:
      1) Must be a U.S. Citizen 2) Ph.D. in Materials Science or a field related to metallurgy and corrosion
      2) Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, or Applied Physics
      3) Expertise in density functional theory and/or phase-field modeling of phase diagram calculations and nano/microstructural evolutions

Ph.D. Gradate Research Assistants:  We currently have one open Ph.D. GRA positions.  These positions pop up randomly (as funding comes in) and I encourage you to send me an e-mail.  I will respond letting you know if I have any available positions.  As with the post-doctoral scholars, all of my Ph.D. students are expected to be highly self-motivated and doggedly pursue their research.

 

Master’s students: We do not have paid positions for Masters students; however, I do mentor Masters thesis for projects related to printed materials and devices.  I typically give Masters students open-ended, applied science projects based upon the group’s previous fundamental research.  You are expected to put in 10 hrs/week of effort on your project/thesis for the first semester and 15-20 hrs/week in your second semester.

 

Undergraduates: We are always looking for self-motivated undergraduates to participate in our lab and gain hands-on research and engineering experience.
