Closure DateWednesday, December 31, 2014
The University of Notre Dame, Center for Shock Wave-processing of Advanced Reactive Materials (C-
SWARM), is seeking two highly qualified candidates for Postdoctoral Research Associate positions in the 
area of computational mechanics/physics and Verification/Validation (V&V) and Uncertainty Quantification 
(UQ). C-SWARM is a newly established center of excellence by National Nuclear Security Administration 
(NNSA) whose primary focus will be on the emerging field of predictive science. The main mission of C-
SWARM is to predict shock conditions under which new materials can be synthesized using predictive 
computational models that are verified and validated with quantified uncertainty on future high-
performance Exascale computer platforms.
	The successful candidates will be key personnel in a team that is developing and implementing 
adaptive, multiscale, high-performance (parallel) computational algorithms for numerical solutions of 
chemo-thermo-mechanical PDE’s with emphasis on complex heterogeneous materials, such as 
heterogeneous reactive composites, etc. The candidates should have detailed knowledge of relevant 
technical areas of science, engineering, system software, applications software for advanced scientific 
computing, broad knowledge of computer technology and hardware, and the ability to collaborate in a 
variety of relevant disciplines. U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is required except in very limited 

•	Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Theoretical & Applied Mechanics, Applied Mathematics, Physics or 
related engineering/science discipline, publications in peer-reviewed journals and conference 
•	Knowledgeable in computational nonlinear mechanics, numerical methods, fluid dynamics, and/or 
chemical kinetics and solid-solid phase transformations.
•	Knowledge of C/C++, Fortran and UNIX operating system is required.
•	Experience in parallel programming.

Close Date:
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Interested applicants should send a CV with a cover letter, names of at least three references, and a 
summary of recent work. All applications should be submitted electronically (paperless process) as a single 
PDF document to:
