What You Will Do

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join our multidisciplinary team to conduct research on the science and technology of ultrasonic/acoustic interrogation of complex structures. The aim of the project is to study the behavior of acoustic waves in complex media with localized and extended non-uniformities as well as interfaces between solids and fluids. The current fields of interest for the project are: modeling and simulation studies of ultrasonic wave propagation in such media, experimental validation of such simulation results, and development of prototype systems for diagnostics and monitoring.The successful candidate will be expected to work closely with other experimental and theoretical/computational scientists and engineers at Los Alamos, as well as on joint projects with industry.There will be extensive opportunities to work in a wide range of areas and to innovate.

Experience in structural health monitoring (SHM), non-destructive evaluation (NDE), non-invasive testing, electrical measurements, building complex experimental setups, sensor development, or modeling and simulation using common software platforms, such as COMSOL and MATLAB, will be considered as important assets.

What You Need

Minimum Job Requirements:

  • Possess extensive hands-on experience in acoustic SHM or NDE research and development,

  • Proven ability to work creatively and independently,

  • A demonstrated record of technical excellence and innovative thinking as evidenced by publication and presentation records and letters of reference,

  • Excellent communication skills (both oral and written).

Education: Candidates must have completed all PhD requirements by commencement of the appointment and must be within the last five years of completion of the PhD, specializing in physics, applied physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, nuclear engineering, applied mathematics, or a related field.

Note to Applicants:

Please send a cover letter addressing how you meet all of the required skills when applying for the position. A current C.V. with the minimum following information/sections is also required: Educational background, degree dates, GPA with scale, name of advisor(s); Work experience; Invited presentations; Grants; Peer-Reviewed Publications; Non-peer-reviewed Publications; Talks and Poster Presentations; contact information for at least three references. Only complete applications with a cover letter and C.V. will be considered. References will not be contacted without permission from the applicant. For additional technical inquiries, contact Dr. Alp Findikoglu at findik@lanl.gov.
