Post Doc Opportunity with Professor Slaybaugh, UC

Application Deadline: 
Sunday, Dec 31st 2017

Prof. Slaybaugh's group researches methods and algorithms for solving the Boltzmann transport equation applied to neutrons and photons more effectively. These methods are often inspired by the physics of the problem at hand, developments in computer hardware, or both. We are seeking an individual interested in taking a leadership role that will build their skillset and foster their preparation to lead a research group of their own. This position is two years with potential to extend to three.

The main duties are:

  • leading and collaborating on research projects; documented through publication
  • following reproducible practices for computational science
  •  mentoring graduate and undergraduate students
  • collaboration on grant proposal submission
  • some teaching (optional)

Potential projects include:

  • deterministic methods for neutron transport
  • hybrid methods for neutron transport
  • coupled multiphysics for reactor analysis
  • machine learning applied to nonproliferation and/or reactor operations and safety
  • monte carlo on advanced architectures
