Position opens

(Graduate students) We look for candiates for Master/Ph.D/ Integrated MS-PhD students who have interest in studying  "Mechanics of Materials" of metals, polymers/composites, and "Computational Mechanics/Materials". 

(Post-doc. researcher) This is an open position for a post-doctoral researcher as well. The best candidate should have background on finite element simulation, experimental mechanics, solid mechanics, and physical metallurgy. If one is familiar with commercial software such as ABAQUS, Dyna 3D etc. may be preferentially considered. 

우리 연구실에서는 "재료역학", "재료의 기계적거동", "멀티스케일 재료전산모사", "자동차용 소재의 성형기술" 등에 대한 학업과 연구를 수행할 석사/박사/석박사 대학원 연구원을 모집하고 있습니다. 2020년 9월 또는 2021년 3월 입학하고자 하는 학생들은 연락바랍니다.

모집 연구분야

- 첨단 해양구조물 철강소재의  상변태, 잔류응력 예측을 위한 성형 시뮬레이션
- 에너지 수송 Clad 강관의 제조공정 최적화를 위한 시뮬레이션법 개발 연구

2020년 1학기 봄학기부터 연구실을 경험하고 연구보조할 학부 인턴쉽, 특히 이후 대학원 진학에 관심있는
학부생은 연락 바랍니다.
