The research group (Multiphase Transport Laboratory, MTL) of Prof. Ben Xu at the University of Houston (UH) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher

Scholarship: Fully funded
Degree:  PhD
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines: September 2023

Scholarship Description:

We have an opening for aPostdoctoral Researcher in metal additive manufacturing (AM) with emphasis on the development and understanding of Nickel-based superalloy design for high temperature and high corrosive environment, and high entropy alloy (HEA) for radiation and salt corrosion protection. The successful candidate will carry out AM experiments, characterize printed samples using advanced electron microscopy techniques, perform data analysis, and develop numerical models to predict the microstructure evolution. Experience with the use of Selective Laser Melting (SLM) machines and advanced electron microscopy techniques are highly desired along with a demonstrated publication record in the area of metal AM and AM process modeling. 

The project team is multidisciplinary and distributed across academia and national laboratories;
