Employment Openings

  • Assistant or Associate Professor (Tenure-Track): The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Virginia solicits outstanding applicants for a tenure track faculty position. The successful applicant will develop an internationally recognized research program, engage enthusiastically in undergraduate and graduate teaching, and perform service in support of outreach and academic self‐governance. Opportunities exist to (i) develop independent research, (ii) explore interdisciplinary collaborations with existing faculty, and (iii) initiate new research initiatives focused on a variety of materials classes, functionalities and energy technology platforms which demand that materials operate at high homologous temperatures. Candidates who specialize in experimental, computational, theoretical or combinations of approaches are sought. We are especially interested in candidates who seek to address high temperature materials behavior through a materials science approach, applying equilibrium and kinetics processes that govern the nano‐ micro‐structure/processing/property paradigm. job posting #0619986
