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.
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 units. 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.
MSE at Georgia Tech currently boasts 34 faculty FTEs whose research portfolio spans all forms and classes of materials that are aimed at addressing various societal grand challenges. Faculty have numerous opportunities for campus-wide interactions, including joint faculty and courtesy appointments within the various academic units in the Colleges of Science, Engineering, and Computing. There are also six interdisciplinary research institutes (IRIs) which have strong materials research components, such as the Institute for Materials (IMat), the Renewable Bioproducts Institute (RBI), the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute (GTMI), the Institute of Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN), the Strategic Energy Institute (SEI), and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). Additionally, there are many state-of-the-art shared user facilities all over campus which include the recently established centralized Materials Characterization User Facility, and a new High-Performance Computing Center that is currently under construction.
The Georgia Institute of Technology is an AA/EOE employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
