MSE Open Faculty Positions:

The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania is growing its faculty by 33% over the next 5 years.  As part of this initiative the Department of Materials Science and Engineering is engaged in an aggressive, multi-year hiring effort for multiple tenure-track positions at the assistant professor level.  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 mechanics of materials, materials for energy applications, quantum materials, and/or in situ microscopies and scattering methods. 

Successful candidates will conduct leading edge research programs benefitting from Penn’s strong interdisciplinary tradition, cross-school research centers such as the NSF-funded Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, and multi-user facilities in the new Singh Center for Nanotechnology.  We are specially interested in candidates whose interests are aligned with the school’s new strategic plan.  If the site is not active, please check back shortly.
