The Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute at the University of Utah and the Center for Multiscale Modeling of Electronic Materials (MSME) invites applications for one post-doctoral researcher for interdisciplinary work spanning applied mathematics, computer science and material sciences. The successful candidate will perform research in the application of uncertainty quantification (UQ) and machine learning (ML) techniques to multiscale algorithms developed at both the continuum level and molecular dynamics level, and will work closely with SCI Institute researchers and external collaborators to integrate research into SCI Institute software applications and apply this software to compelling problems in science and engineering. Previous postdocs who have held this position benefited from its interdisciplinary nature: placing individuals with strong applied mathematics and computing skills at the interface of realistic and compelling engineering problems involving electronic storage devices (batteries and fuel cells) and electronic devices and methodologies (such as optimization of plasmonic nanoparticles).
Being self-motivated and having good organizational, communication, and teamwork skills is essential.
Start Date: As soon as possible, preferably before January 1, 2020.
