Postdoctoral Fellow, Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute: Multiscale Impact Simulations for Planetary Science

A postdoctoral fellow position is available within the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (hemi.jhu.edu) at Johns Hopkins University. The position is in the development and implementation of multiscale impact simulations for applications in planetary science, with a focus on impact into asteroids and moons. The postdoctoral fellow is expected to assist in the development of computational approaches for such simulations, as well as addressing specific applications that involve rotating bodies.

The potential candidate should have a Ph.D. in planetary science, geophysics, mechanics, physics, or computer science. A background in large-scale computations, numerical methods and/or impact would be valuable. The selected candidate will work under the supervision of Professor K.T. Ramesh. The University is committed to building a diverse environment; women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

If you are interested, please send an email to ramesh@jhu.edu with a single PDF file containing your curriculum vitae, the names of at least two references, and a brief (less than 1 page) research statement. Please use the subject line “HEMI Postdoctoral Fellow in Planetary Science.” Review of applications will begin April 15, but we will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.
