Assistant or Associate Professor, Tenure Track
Mechanical and Materials Engineering
University of Cincinnati
Open until filled
Position Start Date
1/1/2016 or 8/15/2016
The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering in the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) at the University of Cincinnati invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty position in the Materials Science and Engineering Program in the area of Physical and Mechanical Metallurgy, starting January 1 or August 15, 2016. Applications at the assistant or associate professor level are preferred. A broad and diverse spectrum of candidates is sought; women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
The department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering currently has 37 faculty members (10 in Materials) and an enrollment of about 800 undergraduate and 250 graduate students. The department presently offers an ABET accredited B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science and Engineering. Currently, the College of Engineering and Applied Science also offers a Materials Engineering minor in all engineering programs. Additional information about the department, college and university can be found at http://www.eng.uc.edu/dept_min/.
Candidates are sought with research specialties in physical and mechanical metallurgy with emphasis on lightweight alloys, high-temperature alloys and/or additive manufacturing of metals. Qualifications include a doctorate in materials science and engineering or closely related discipline and a record of scholarly achievement. Expertise in microstructural characterization including diffraction and analytical/high-resolution electron microscopy and spectroscopy are desirable. The successful candidate is expected to develop a strong funded research program, supervise graduate research, publish in archival journals, and teach graduate and undergraduate courses in the metallurgy and materials characterization.
The Materials Science and Engineering Program has a long history in metallurgical engineering dating back to 1950 as can be found at http://www.min.uc.edu/me/mse/materials-science-and-engineering. There are active research programs in surface science, advanced mechanical surface treatments like laser shock peening, high temperature and lightweight alloys, nanotechnology for energy applications, flexible solar cells, nano-medicine, ceramic composites and structure of soft matter.
Applications must include the candidate’s curriculum vitae, name and contact information for at least three references and a cover letter summarizing the candidate’s research plan and teaching interests. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until positions are filled. The search committee may request further documentation, including letters of recommendation.
The University of Cincinnati is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer with a strong commitment to the principle of diversity. The University of Cincinnati is the recipient of the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Award to increase the participation of women in academic science and engineering careers.
