The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) (https://www.mse.umd.edu) is embarking on a substantial expansion by seeking outstanding individuals for multiple tenured/tenure-track faculty positions in the areas of: (1) advanced microscopy that pushes the boundaries of materials characterization; (2) additive manufacturing of metals and composites, (3) materials for advanced and quantum computing, (4) materials for extreme environment in energy and defense systems, (5) computational materials science, and (6) applied experimental physics on emergent materials. Exceptional candidates in other areas of MSE will also be considered. At least one faculty will be hired jointly with the Institute for Research in Electronics & Applied Physics (IREAP) (https://www.ireap.umd.edu) – a UMD institute with a broad interest in interdisciplinary applied physics research.
Successful applicants should have a Ph.D. in MSE, applied physics, or a related discipline. We seek candidates who can lead interdisciplinary materials research and establish vibrant research and teaching programs at the University of Maryland. Academic rank is open depending on qualifications, but at least three positions are expected to be filled at the junior faculty level.
The Department and Institute are committed to promoting a climate of diversity and inclusion among our faculty. Women and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply, and candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to working with diverse populations through research, teaching and mentoring are encouraged to identify their experience in these areas.
For best consideration, interested applicants should apply by December 20, 2019; review of applications will begin on November 1, 2019 and will continue on a rolling basis until positions are filled.
A cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests, and names of at least three professional references should be submitted electronically to: https://ejobs.umd.edu/; position number 125337. Applicants who are interested in the joint MSE and IREAP position should state their interest in interdisciplinary applied physics research in their cover letters.
Questions about the positions can be directed to the Chair of the Search Committee, Prof. Ichiro Takeuchi (email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Phone: (301) 405-6809).
About Higher Education
Founded in 1856, University of Maryland, College Park is the state’s flagship institution. Our 1,250-acre College Park campus is just minutes away from Washington, D.C., and the nexus of the nation’s legislative, executive, and judicial centers of power. This unique proximity to business and technology leaders, federal departments and agencies, and a myriad of research entities, embassies, think tanks, cultural centers, and non-profit organizations is simply unparalleled. Synergistic opportunities for our faculty and students abound and are virtually limitless in the nation’s capital and surrounding areas. The University is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding and diverse faculty and staff that will enhance our stature of preeminence in our three missions of teaching, scholarship, and full engagement in our community, the state of Maryland, and in the world.
The Materials Science and Engineering at UMD currently has 19 tenured/tenure-track faculty covering a broad range of materials with a research expenditure of $13-14M a year. The vibrant research at the Department was featured on the front covers of Nature, Science and Physics Today, all within the past 6 months.... Faculty research has also led to the formation of several technology startup companies, bringing research outcome to societal impact.
