Research Area: University of Memphis Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Area of Game Theory Applications
Project Description:
The University of Memphis, Department of Civil Engineering invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in transportation. A successful candidate will work with Michail Gkolias, Ph.D. to carry out a two-year research project (with an optional year possible) in the area of game theory applications (Pareto, Hierarchical, and Nash Equilibriums) on transportation networks to discover vulnerabilities from manmade or natural disasters/threats. Funding for this research and the post doctoral position is provided through the prestigious Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship program which pairs postdoctoral fellows with principal investigators at universities and an intelligence community advisor to pursue work of interest to the IC. Fellows in this program are expected to attend an annual colloquium in Washington D.C. to share their research results with members of the IC. U.S. citizenship and a background check are required.

The salary is extremely competitive and includes full benefits (health insurance, retirement plan, etc.). Travel funds have also been allocated to enable the Fellow to present findings at national conferences.

Requirements:
Candidates should have a Ph.D. (or have successfully defended their dissertation prior to start date) with a background in transportation and operations research. Candidates should have a publication record on multi-objective and hierarchical (e.g. bi-level) optimization. Knowledge of C, C++, Matlab or other programing languages is also required. The successful candidate will be expected to carry out research under minimal supervision, disseminate research results through peer reviewed journals and conferences, and mentor graduate and undergraduate research assistants.

Research Area: Postdoctoral Researcher Opening - Idaho State University
Project Description:
Parametric Analysis of the Behavior of Normal Strength and Ultra High Performance Concrete under High Frequency Direct Shear Loading

The Idaho State University (ISU) Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in structural engineering. The position is for two years with the possibility of a third year. The successful candidate will carry out research in the area of material characterization of cementitious materials under high strain rate loading using physical testing and numerical modelling.

Funding for this research is provided through the prestigious Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship program which was established in 2000 to fund basic research in areas of interest to the Intelligence Community. This unique program pairs postdoctoral fellows with principal investigators at universities and an intelligence community advisor. Fellows in this program are expected to attend an annual colloquium in Washington D.C. to share their research results with members of the IC. This program requires postdocs to be U.S. citizens capable of passing a background check.

Idaho State University, a Carnegie-classified doctoral research institution founded in 1901, educates approximately 13,000 students per year in more than 280 programs.
