The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) and the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy seek applicants for appointments made at the tenure-track or tenured faculty position in the area of machine learning in mechanical and materials engineering. The School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy, one of the seven Fulton Schools, houses a vibrant community of researchers in the mechanical and aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, and materials science disciplines (learn more at https://research.engineering.asu.edu/). We seek applicants who complement our abilities in these areas and will discover new Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence-based approaches for advancing the fields of mechanics and materials engineering. Areas of interest include but are not limited to, aerospace materials and structures, materials characterization and/or processing/manufacturing, mechanics of defects, materials reliability and failure, and computational materials science.
We seek applicants who will contribute to our academic programs, promote transdisciplinary teaching and research, and help the University to achieve its aspirations, including enabling student success, transforming society, valuing entrepreneurship and conducting use-inspired research. Faculty members in the Fulton Schools are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, adopt effective pedagogical practices in the development and delivery of graduate and undergraduate courses, advise both undergraduate and graduate student research and projects and undertake service activities.
This search is part of ASU’s engagement with the Arizona’s New Economy Initiative (NEI), a bold effort to ensure that Arizona leads the new economy that will rely on engineering, computing and technology to drive sustainable growth, resilience and opportunities for all. NEI investments in the Fulton Schools of Engineering will grow our world class faculty to accelerate research outcomes and to broaden student access to our programs; will establish Science and Technology Centers to foster the growth of new economy Industries; and will expand experiential learning and workforce training opportunities.
