Posting Summary: The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Virginia invites applicants with expertise in additive manufacturing with metallic materials for a tenured/tenure-track open rank faculty position (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor). The additive manufacturing (AM) 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 and control, integrated computational materials engineering 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.
Advancing additive manufacturing technology is an area of growing strength at UVA Engineering, which builds upon the established expertise in far-from-equilibrium processing (laser, e-beam, etc.), materials degradation (corrosion, oxidation, cracking, etc.), cyber-physical systems, and orthopedic implants. It is also noted that UVA is a charter member of the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM), along with key industry partners Airbus, Arconic/Alcoa, Rolls-Royce Aerospace, and Siemens. CCAM has a focus on AM technology development.
The successful candidate will possess a doctoral degree in MSE or a closely related field and have 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. They 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.
