Posted: October 16, 2017
The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania initiated a period of significant growth in 2015 that has resulted in 30 new faculty hires of which four are in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The department is continuing this aggressive, multi-year hiring effort by seeking a tenure-track assistant professor. Exceptional applicants for tenured associate and full professor positions may also be considered.
Applicants from all materials-related research areas are invited to apply, especially those with expertise in (1) materials for health sciences, (2) electronic materials, and (3) structural materials. Additional descriptions of these research areas and the Penn Engineering’s strategic plan are available (www.mse.seas.upenn.edu/faculty-staff/index.php).
Applications must be submitted online http://facultysearches.provost.upenn.edu/postings/1290 and include a cover letter, a complete curriculum vitae, a short (5 page limit) research statement, a teaching statement and the names of three references (with contact information) who could provide letters of recommendation. The cover letter should describe the applicant’s most significant scientific accomplishment as a graduate student and as a postdoc, the applicant‘s overall goals/vision for a research program at Penn, and the experience and qualifications that make the applicant particularly well-suited to achieve those goals.
Review of applications will begin immediately with a deadline of January 2, 2018.
