Post-doctoral position in experimental phase transformations, plasticity, and microstructure evolution under high pressure

Post-doctoral position at Iowa State University is available in Dr. Valery Levitas’ group starting in the Summer of 2024 to perform experimental research on coupled plastic flow, phase transformations, and microstructure evolution under high pressure and torsion of a sample in static and dynamic rotational diamond anvil cells. Experience with in situ high pressure experimentation and/or x-ray characterization of stresses and structural changes in materials at the micron scale is desired. Close collaboration with theoretical/computational collaborators and Argonne National Laboratory of DoE is expected. Please email your application to Prof. Valery Levitas [email protected].
