The School of Engineering at Brown University is seeking to fill a faculty position in Mechanics of Solids and Structures at any academic level. Candidates should have expertise and research interests in the mechanics of soft, biological, structural, energy materials or systems that are complementary and synergistic with existing research areas in the School as described below. The successful candidate is expected to make a significant contribution to the School’s research activities and to build a strong, externally funded research program. The candidate should also have a marked interest in, and demonstrated talent for, teaching in both the undergraduate and graduate programs.
The Mechanics of Solids and Structures Group fosters a balanced program of research and instruction that integrates the perspectives of mechanics of solids, materials and structures. The program has a long standing tradition of leadership in solid mechanics through innovations in analytical, computational, and experimental concepts and methodologies that form the core of the field. Research areas of particular strength in the Mechanics of Solids Group at Brown include: experimental mechanics of materials; mechanics of biological materials; mechanics of soft materials; mechanics of nano-structured materials; mechanics of energy storage materials; multiscale materials modeling; cellular and molecular biomechanics as part of the school-wide program in biomedical engineering.
Applications should contain the following documents: (1) a letter of application, (2) a curriculum vita, (3) a research statement, (4) a teaching statement, and (5) provide three letters of reference (for applications at the Assistant Professor level) or names and contact information of five references (for senior level applications), whom the search committee may contact directly. All application materials should be submitted online through https://apply.interfolio.com/37647.
