Tenure-Track Position in Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Materials

The Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at The University of Texas at Austin has a tenure-track position beginning September 2020 in the area of Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Materials. We are particularly interested in the area of Experimental Nano/Micro-mechanics, encompassing design, fabrication and characterization of engineered and biological materials, nanomaterials, and nanostructures. This interdisciplinary endeavor centered on mechanics of solids, bridges with materials science, solid-state physics, biophysics etc., and with applications in advanced multifunctional aerospace materials, nanotechnology, nanotribology, bioengineering and related areas. Candidates with expertise in one or more of these areas are encouraged to apply. The position is expected to be filled at the rank of assistant professor, but exceptionally-qualified senior candidates will be considered. The department and the Cockrell School of Engineering are committed to building a diverse and inclusive environment. We are interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in Engineering or a related field. Successful candidates are expected to supervise graduate students, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, develop a sponsored research program, collaborate with other faculty, and be involved in service to the university and the engineering profession. Applications received by December 1, 2019 are assured full consideration, but the search will continue until the position is filled. Only complete applications will be considered. Interested applicants should submit the following to https://apply.interfolio.com/69763 1) a cover letter, 2) current vitae, 3) statements of research and teaching interests, 4) statement describing a commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion through their research, teaching, and/or service5) a list of five references.

The University of Texas at Austin is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.
