Clemson University: College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences: Materials Science & Engineering
Assistant, Associate or Full Professor - Materials Science and Engineering
Location: 161 Sirrine Hall
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Clemson University (http://www.clemson.edu/mse/) is seeking outstanding candidates to fill two tenure-track positions.
One position, located on the main University campus and expected to be at a rank of Assistant Professor, will focus on inorganic materials including, but not limited to interface science or materials characterization. A second position, located at the Clemson University Restoration Institute (CURI) campus in North Charleston, SC, and at the rank of Associate or Full Professor, will focus on materials corrosion and related surface science technologies and engineering aspects to counteract corrosion and degradation caused by the environment. Corrosion failure mechanisms, metallurgy, corrosion phenomena at the atomic and molecular level, electrochemistry, protection of embedded materials in the built environment, resilient materials design are among topics of particular interest. CURI consists of a graduate education center, an advanced energy systems testing, research and development center, and a conservation center focusing on materials science and engineering aspect of degradation of materials in the marine environment. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering has 17 tenured/tenure track faculty, 3 research faculty, 15 research associates/scientists, over 160 UG students (sophomore to seniors) and over 50 graduate students. The faculty of this research-focused department extensively collaborates with various programs across the campus and with colleagues nationally and internationally. Clemson University is ranked as one of top twenty five public universities in the US and holds highest research activity Carnegie Classification, with several Innovation Campuses, such as CURI, providing outstanding facilities for interdisciplinary collaborations (http://www.clemson.edu/research/innovation/campuses.html).
Candidates must hold a doctoral degree in Materials Science and Engineering or a related discipline, have demonstrated a record of prior research accomplishments and shown the potential to educate and mentor students. Successful candidates will be expected to establish vigorous, high quality research programs including interdisciplinary collaborations, attract significant external funding, and be able to collaborate with current faculty both within MSE and the University as a whole. In addition, the candidates must demonstrate the potential to teach both at the undergraduate and graduate level.
All applications must be submitted electronically via Interfolio (https://apply.interfolio.com/39955) and include: 1) a 1 page cover letter specifying for which position the application is being made; 2) a current complete CV including a list of all publications; 3) PDF copies of the three most significant publications along with a brief statement (1 page max.) explaining why these articles best represent the applicant's work; 4) 2-4 page research statement highlighting complimentary capabilities to the existing faculty and programs; and 5) contact information of 3-5 references. Questions can be sent to Prof. John Ballato, Search Committee Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The anticipated starting date is August 2017. Review of applications will commence on February 5, 2017, with full consideration being assured to applications received by this date. Screening will continue until the positions are filled.
