Faculty Position in Materials Science & Engineering at Cornell University
Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place to work. Our inclusive community of scholars, students and staff impart an uncommon sense of larger purpose and contribute creative ideas to further the university's mission of teaching, discovery and engagement. With our main campus located in Ithaca, NY, Cornell's far-flung global presence includes the medical college's campuses on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and Doha, Qatar, as well as the Cornell Tech campus located on Roosevelt Island in the heart of New York City.
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Cornell University is soliciting applications for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position. Exceptional candidates are sought, particularly those who will dramatically enhance our core research thrusts, especially in the areas of soft materials and/or biomaterials. More information on Cornell MS&E's strategic research focus is available at: http://mse.cornell.edu.
Candidates are expected to currently have or to develop an internationally recognized program of research and teaching in materials science and engineering. Ideal candidates should be able to create strategic interactions between Cornell faculty. Considerable institutional resources are available for the support of the successful applicant's research program and a competitive start-up package can be expected. The successful candidate can expect to benefit from associations with Cornell's many interdisciplinary research centers, facilities, and initiatives, which include a number of national resources. The successful candidate will be expected to excel in the teaching of materials science and engineering and to mentor students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace diversity and seek candidates who will create a climate that attracts students of all races, nationalities, and genders. Women and under-represented minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
