TitlePostdoc/RAP Position in Multiphysics Computation
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerUniversity of South Carolina
LocationUnited States, SC, COLUMBIA
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSunday, December 31, 2023
Postdoc and research assistant professor (RAP) positions in Mechanical 
Engineering are immediately available within the research group of Dr. Yi Wang 
at the University of South Carolina-USC (Columbia/Main 

Multiphysics Simulation, Machine Learning, and Design Optimization 
We will investigate and develop multiphysics simulation, reduced order modeling, 
machine learning, and design optimization methods for a variety of engineering 
applications, which include but not limited to 
thermal-fluidics, aerospace and aeroservoelasticity, additive manufacturing, and 
microfluidics & nanofluidics. 

Research efforts will include 
•	Development of multiphysics models and simulation techniques
•	Development of reduced order models for multiphysics engineering systems
•	Development of big data analytics, machine learning, and optimization 

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), in particular, multi-phase flow and fluid-structural 
•	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) 
(, 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 aerodynamics & aerospace, railroad engineering, 
micro/nanofluidics. CDS&E, recently emerging as a focal point of 
multidisciplinary research has been applied to essentially each phase of 
technology development and industrial engineering. 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 to Dr. Wang 
( with the email subject “Position Application”.
