Faculty Position with a Focus on Additive Manufacturing

Department of Materials Science and Engineering
University of Virginia
Posted: November 30, 2017

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Virginia seeks candidates for a tenure‐track (assistant or associate) faculty position to further investigations in metal and ceramic additive manufacturing (AM) technologies. These technologies are already influencing a broad range of sectors, including aerospace, defense, and biomedical. At the same time, there are challenges related to process monitoring & control, integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) design, as well as certification and life prediction of AM components. Candidates who specialize in experimental, computational, theoretical or a combination of approaches are welcomed.

The successful candidate will possess a doctoral degree in MSE or a closely related field and possess a strong commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The new faculty member will demonstrate the desire to develop a world‐class, sponsored‐research program centered on the mentoring of graduate students. She/he will perform service in support of the professional discipline, outreach, and academic self-governance. Opportunities exist to collaborate across the UVA schools of engineering and medicine and the University at large, including a joint appointment in the department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering or other collaborating department.
