EmployerUniversity of South Carolina
LocationUnited States, SC, Columbia
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateWednesday, December 01, 2021
Description:
PhD positions in Mechanical Engineering are available in Spring 2021 and 
Fall 2021 within the research group of Dr. Yi Wang at the University of 
South Carolina-USC (Columbia/Main campus, 
https://yiwangusc.wixsite.com/yiwang). 

Reduced Order Modeling, Machine Learning, and Design Optimization for 
Multiphysics Engineering Systems 
We will investigate and develop reduced order modeling, machine learning, 
and design optimization methods for multiphysics systems for a variety of 
engineering applications, which include but not limited to thermal-fluidics, 
aerospace and aeroservoelasticity, energy materials and management, additive 
manufacturing, and microfluidics & nanofluidics. 

Research efforts will include 
•	Development of reduced order models for multiphysics engineering 
systems
•	Development of data mining, machine learning, and optimization 
algorithms
•	Development of topology optimization algorithms

The preferred qualifications include: 
•	Strong background in linear algebra, and computational mathematics 
and/or mechanics
•	Experience in developing numerical models, codes, and computation 
algorithms (CFD and FEM) 
•	Hands-on experience with computing in Matlab, C/C++, Python, or 
other object-oriented programming languages
•	Strong interest and self-motivation to perform cutting-edge research 
and conquer challenges in real-world engineering and to publish high-impact 
papers

USC is the flagship university in the State of South Carolina, and the Ph.D. 
program at the department of Mechanical Engineering is ranked No. 31 
nationally by the National Research Council (NRC) 
(http://www.me.sc.edu/about/), and the College of Engineering and Computing 
is ranked No. 1 in the State of South Carolina for faculty research 
productivity.  

The group of Dr. Wang focuses on computational and data-enabled science and 
engineering (CDS&E) and its applications in real-world multiphysics systems, 
including micro/nanofluidics, energy management, additive manufacturing, 
aerodynamics & aerospace. CDS&E, recently emerging as a focal point of 
multidisciplinary research has been applied to essentially each phase of 
technology development and industrial engineering, from conceptualization, 
virtual prototyping and design, and automation and control, to final 
verification and validation (V&V). Our group aims to discover and develop 
new methodologies, framework, and capabilities to bridge CDS&E and system 
engineering in the real world and with particular emphasis on multiphysics 
and engineering intelligence. To apply, please send your CV/Resume, 
publications, etc. in a single PDF (for Ph.D. applicants, transcripts, and 
GRE scores are also required) to Dr. Wang (yiwang@cec.sc.edu) with the email 
subject “Position Application”.
