The School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (GT) seeks to add tenure-track faculty who have an established record of nationally and internationally recognized excellence in research and leadership. Outstanding candidates with demonstrated expertise in materials science and engineering featuring some combination of synthesis, processing, theory, computations, data analytics, and/or high-throughput experimentation are sought. Exceptional candidates may also be considered for the College of Engineering interdisciplinary hire in Data-enabled Design and Manufacturing. These positions are designed to enhance the broad research portfolio of MSE at Georgia Tech that spans all forms and classes of materials.
Qualified candidates must possess a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering or a closely related discipline. Successful candidates will be expected to provide leadership in research programs that cut across several academic programs. The ideal candidate will champion independent and collaborative research at the cutting edge of his/her field and be able to attract external funding to build strong sponsored-research activities. The top candidate will also be expected to successfully mentor graduate students, and develop and teach fundamental courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in materials science and engineering.
Interested applicants must submit an online application, which includes a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research interest and teaching philosophy, and the names (and contact information) of at least five references, at:
Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their completed application package by December 2, 2016 to ensure full consideration. The selection process will include passing a pre-employment background screening.
