The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE) seeks candidates for open tenure-track faculty positions to begin July 2016 or thereafter. Appointments would be at the assistant or untenured associate professor level. In special cases, a senior faculty appointment may be possible. Faculty duties include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, research, and supervision of student research.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering or a related field by the start of employment. DMSE intends to broaden its research portfolio in computational materials science and in particular seeks candidates who conduct research in theory, modeling and simulation of materials. All areas of computational materials science and materials classes will be considered, including application and development of first-principles methods; materials theory; data-driven design and discovery of materials; and development and application of meso-scale, multi-scale, and multi-physics methods.
DMSE has strengths and interests across the full spectrum of materials science and engineering, and excellent candidates with expertise in any and all areas of the field are welcomed. This includes candidates who can engage with Institute initiatives in Manufacturing, Energy, Environment, Health, and Data.
Interested candidates should submit application materials electronically at http://dmsefacsrch.mit.edu. Each application should include: a curriculum vitae; a statement of research interests; and a statement of teaching interests. We request that each candidate arrange for 3 letters of reference to be uploaded at http://dmsefacsrch.mit.edu/letters/. Questions should be addressed to DMSE-Search-Master@dmsefacsrch.mit.edu. Responses received by December 31, 2015 will be given priority. No application received after March 1, 2016 will be considered in this year’s search.
