The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania initiated a period of substantial growth in 2015 including four new hires in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The department is continuing this exciting multi-year hiring effort by seeking multiple tenure-track assistant professors. Exceptional applicants for tenured associate and full professor positions may also be considered.
The primary hiring focus is the research area of materials for health, along with a secondary focus on functional materials. Exceptional applicants in other areas of materials science and engineering may also be considered. Additional descriptions of these focus areas and Penn Engineering’s strategic plan are available at http://www.mse.seas.upenn.edu/faculty-staff/
Review of applications will begin immediately with a target deadline of November 1, 2018.
Applications must be submitted online and include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a research statement (limit 5 pages), a teaching statement, and contact information for 3-5 references who could provide letters of recommendation. The cover letter should summarize the applicant’s (i) scientific and teaching accomplishments, (ii) vision for their research program specifically at Penn, and (iii) approach to contributing to a diverse and inclusive learning environment.
