The College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin?Madison seeks faculty candidates for up to three tenure track faculty positions and one tenured position in the area of Accelerated Materials Discovery. Particular areas of interest include (but are not limited to) high through?put, combinatorial, or rapid screening methods. All classes of materials design are relevant (soft or hard) within this multidisciplinary search. An ability to integrate experimental, theoretical, and informatics efforts is preferred. The tenured position includes the responsibility of serving as Thrust Leader for this area of focus within the Grainger Institute for Engineering.
The Grainger Institute serves as a research incubator within the College of Engineering. The Institute fosters a transdisciplinary research and educational environment and provides the infrastructure to address grand technological challenges. Our current hiring focus on accelerated materials discovery complements other targeted efforts in the areas of advanced manufacturing and energy and sustainability, with computational science and engineering serving as a crosscutting theme. New research directions will continue to be launched and nurtured within the Institute.
Successful candidates will be expected to maintain a world?class extramurally funded graduate research program on technological problems that are relevant to the needs of the profession and of society. They will also contribute to the education and professional development of undergraduate and graduate students, teach engineering courses, and engage in department, college, university, community, and professional service activities as appropriate.
Funded with a $25 million commitment from The Grainger Foundation, of Lake Forest, Illinois, the Grainger Institute for Engineering will foster new discoveries and build the University’s global reputation as a leader in driving advances that help solve critical technological challenges. “The positive and transformative effects of this investment within the College of Engineering will resonate thro...ughout the state and our nation far into the future,” says UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank. “Through innovation in advanced manufacturing technologies and education of the workforce, the Institute will accelerate the renaissance of the U.S. manufacturing industry and enhance the nation’s economy.”
