Postdoctoral Research Position: Inelastic Deformation of Dynamically Compressed Solids

The Institute for Shock Physics at Washington State University has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate (experimentalist) to study the inelastic deformation mechanisms in solids subjected to high stress dynamic compression. Although a broad range of solids – from single crystals to heterogeneous/architected materials – are of interest, the chore of the particular solid to be examined will depend on the academic/research background of the individual hired in this position. Time-resolved (ns resolution) laser-interferometry measurements in single event experiments and their analysis will provide the basis for understanding the dynamic material response. We are looking for a creative, self-motivated experimentalist who has the ability and the drive to pursue challenging, interdisciplinary problems in a fast-paced research



Only applicants who are currently in the U.S.

and meet the following minimum qualifications will be considered for the position:

A very recent Ph.D. degree in Solid Mechanics, Materials Science, Solid State Physics, or a relevant academic discipline

Strong academic and research background related to the mechanical response of materials and excellent problem-solving skills

Graduate or post-graduate experience at a U.S. Academic Institution or National Laboratory

Strong experimental skills and hands-on experience in the study of deformation of solids

Excellent communication skills, both oral and written

Ability to work independently and in a team environment, as needed

Personal attributes should include critical thinking; excellent communication skills; sound judgment; clear sense of purpose; attention to detail; and accountability

Prior experience in dynamic compression research is not required. However, strong hands-on experimental skills relevant to the scientific objectives listed above are essential.

The salary structure is both attractive and nationally competitive. Other benefits include health/dental insurance, vacation/sick leave, retirement plans, and access to all University facilities.

Application Process

Applicants should submit a letter of application explicitly addressing the required qualifications for this position and date of availability; detailed curriculum vitae; and the contact information for three professional references to the attention of Professor Y. M. Gupta via email at

To ensure consideration, please specify the position (Postdoc: Inelastic Deformation) for which you are applying. We will begin reviewing applications immediately and will continue to do so until the position is filled. Please contact Ms. Sheila Heyns with inquiries regarding this position (

, 509-335-1861).

Due to the large volume of applications, we will contact only those selected for next steps.

Washington State University

Washington State University, one of the two research universities in the state, was founded in 1890 as the state’s land-grant institution and is located in Pullman with regional campuses in Spokane, Vancouver and the Tri-Cities. Due to its strong emphasis on excellence in research and education, the Carnegie Classification™ has designated WSU as RU/VH: Research Universities (very high research activity). Current enrollment is approximately 29,686 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. The University offers more than 200 fields of study, with 95 majors for undergraduates, 79 master’s degree programs, 63 doctoral degree programs, and 3 professional degree programs. Academically, the University is organized into 11 colleges (Agriculture, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences; Arts and Sciences; Business; Communication; Education; Engineering and Architecture; Honors; Medicine; Nursing; Pharmacy; and Veterinary Medicine) and a Graduate School.
