Job Description:The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida invites applications for full-time, non-tenure track, 12-month faculty position at the rank of Research Assistant/Associate/Full Scientist. Although the anticipated hiring rank is Research Assistant Scientist, senior levels will be considered based upon experience.Duties and responsibilities include:

  • Developing mesoscale models using the phase field method for predicting microstructure evolution in harsh environments, including grain growth and high temperature reactions with hydrogen. These models will be implemented using the Multiphysics Object-Oriented Simulation Environment (MOOSE).
  • Analyzing simulation results to draw conclusions about the material behavior and its impact on performance.
  • Using simulation data to train machine learning models of microstructure evolution.
  • Mentoring and directing undergraduate, masters, and PhD students.
  • Collaborating with experimentalists and data scientists.
  • Writing papers summarizing research progress.
  • Presenting research progress and professional conferences.

The University of Florida is the flagship campus of the State of Florida university system and is ranked as the #1 best public US university according to the Wall Street Journal. UF is currently ranked as one of the top-6 best public universities, 6th according to the 2024 U.S. News & World Report of Best Colleges.
