The Institute for Molecular Engineering (IME) is a unique interdisciplinary institute launched by the University of Chicago in 2011 with the aim of translating molecular-level science into technological solutions with potential societal impact in health care, energy, environmental sustainability and information technology. An independent unit within the university, IME is also affiliated with Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and joint appointment is encouraged when appropriate.

IME invites applications for tenure-track and tenured faculty positions at the ranks of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor in the area of experimental materials synthesis and integration. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, materials and systems for new computing approaches, quantum materials, sensing, energy conversion, additive materials and additive manufacturing, engineered low-dimensional materials with novel properties, and biologically inspired materials. The candidate will be expected to establish a strong independent research program and be interested in a multidisciplinary, system level approach to materials science and engineering. The IME also has close ties with Argonne National Laboratory (several faculty members have joint appointments) and the position will enable close interaction with Argonne scientists. While we will consider exceptional candidates from all fields of materials science, we seek in particular expertise in inorganic materials based approaches to the areas noted above. Candidates must have a doctoral degree in a relevant field of study and have an outstanding research record.
