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 Advanced Manufacturing. The School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy, one of the seven Fulton Schools, houses a vibrant engineering research community (Learn more at https://research.engineering.asu.edu/). We seek applicants who complement our abilities to solve grand challenges as part of a community of experts. The broad areas of interest in this search are additive manufacturing of advanced materials and development of novel manufacturing processes. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, additive manufacturing of metals, ceramics, polymers and their composites, scalable manufacturing of architected/heterogeneous materials, 3D/4D printing of functional/active materials and structures, additive manufacturing of materials for extreme environments, development of new precursor materials and processes for advanced manufacturing, and modeling, simulation, and computational/experimental methods for understanding fundamental manufacturing processes.

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.

Appointment will be at the rank commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments, beginning August 2023.  Although the tenure home may be in any of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy is currently the most involved in this search.
