Employment Openings

  • Assistant or Associate Professor (Tenure-Track): The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Virginia seeks candidates for a tenureā€track (assistant or associate) faculty position to further investigations in metal and ceramic additive manufacturing (AM) technologies. These technologies are already influencing a broad range of sectors, including aerospace, defense, and biomedical. At the same time, there are challenges related to process monitoring & control, integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) design, as well as certification and life prediction of AM components. Candidates who specialize in experimental, computational, theoretical or a combination of approaches are welcomed. job posting #0621745
  • Research Associate: Professor Balachandran’s research group in the Departments of Materials Science and Engineering and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Virginia is seeking to fill a Research Associate position to study the computational design of materials using density functional theory (DFT) methods. The successful candidate, under general oversight of the principal investigator, will develop novel approaches that integrate DFT with machine learning methods to accelerate the search and discovery of novel materials. job posting #0622507
  • Research Associate: The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Virginia is seeking to fill a Research Associate position in the framework of an ongoing research effort on solid state batteries. Primary duties include the design, synthesis and development of novel battery systems for energy storage and delivery. The work will involve chemical and solid state synthesis of oxide materials, tailoring of their properties and structure as well as functional characterization, with the objective to add to the knowledge base of materials and battery science. The successful candidate will be familiar with most or all of the following research areas: electrochemistry, materials synthesis and characterization (including among others X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, electrochemical techniques). The appointment will be for one year, renewable pending satisfactory performance and funding. job posting #0622993
