FACULTY POSITION in ADVANCED MATERIALS (Open Rank)

 

The Department of Mechanical Engineering, and the Materials Science and Engineering Program invite applications for a faculty position (Open Rank) beginning the 2016/17 academic yearExceptional candidates in all areas of ME and MSE will be considered, with preference given to those with interdisciplinary expertise in:

 

Advanced materials, with emphasis on the development of techniques that allow synthesis and processing of novel materials with properties that significantly exceed the state-of-the-art, and thus, serve as critical enablers for applications including, but not limited to energy, aerospace, transportation, electronics, biology, and/or healthcare.

 

Full consideration will be given to applications beginning on December 23, 2015. Further details and application instructions can be found at http://www.engr.ucr.edu/facultysearch/.

 

 

 

MULTIPLE FACULTY POSITIONS (Open Rank) in

COMPUTATIONAL MATERIALS

INTELLIGENT AND AUTONOMOUS EMBEDDED SYSTEMS

PHONON AND MAGNON ENGINEERED MATERIALS AND DEVICES

 

The University of California at Riverside (UCR) is embarking on a major new hiring initiative that will add 300 tenure-track positions in 33 cross-disciplinary areas. The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department is leading three cluster searches as part of this initiative, the hires of which will have opportunity for appointments in ECE and/or other departments in engineering (including Mechanical Engineering) or the sciences, with the goal of enhancing UCR’s research strengths in:

 

  • Computational Materials (3 positions): One area includes ab initio approaches with applications in energetics and kinetics of material growth and structure including dopants, crystal defects, domain boundaries, crystal hetero-interfaces, magnetic properties, and vibrational spectra. A second area includes GW, Bethe-Saltpeter, and TDDFT approaches. A third area will focus on strongly correlated materials using traditional tools of condensed matter theory or more quantitative tools such as dynamical mean field theory or quantum Monte Carlo. All candidates are expected to collaborate with experimental groups.
  • Intelligent and Autonomous Embedded Systems (3 positions): Areas of primary interest include: robotics, autonomy, computer vision, machine learning, and embedded, networked, and real-time systems. Excellent candidates with theoretical and system-building research experience are desired.
  • Phonon and Magnon Engineered Materials and Devices (3 positions): Areas of interest include: spectroscopy of phonons and magnons, phonon transport in nanostructures, phononic crystals and phonon engineered materials, thermoelectric devices, magnetic materials, spin waves and magnonic devices. The candidates are expected to collaborate with the research centers on campus focused on investigation of phonons and spins in nanoscale systems.   

 

Full consideration will be given to applications beginning on December 23, 2015. Further details and application instructions can be found at http://www.engr.ucr.edu/facultysearch/.

 

 

 

LECTURER WITH SECURITY OF EMPLOYMENT (LSOE) POSITION

 

The Department of Mechanical Engineering invites applications for a Lecturer with Security of Employment (LSOE) position beginning the 2016/17 academic year. Appointment as a LSOE requires evidence of a long-standing record of exceptional undergraduate teaching, professional achievement, and service to the academic community. A LSOE is a member of the academic senate and will be expected to teach six quarter-based classes per year. Applicants from all areas of Mechanical Engineering are encouraged to apply.

 

Full consideration will be given to applications received beginning on December 23, 2015. Further details and application instructions can be found at http://www.engr.ucr.edu/employment.html
