Job Description

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) and the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (AME) at the University of Arizona invite applications for a faculty position in high performance materials simulation and theory. A technical expert is sought in the area of multiscale modeling and simulation applied but not limited to hypersonic fluid-thermal-structural interactions, thermodynamics of advanced high performance materials, dynamical evolution of microstructures in the presence of external stimuli, diffusion and non-equilibrium situations in materials systems under extreme conditions. In addition, expertise is desired in using big data to capture dynamic evolution of microstructures and simulating high temperature oxidation kinetics and corrosion. This is a tenure-track position intended to be at the assistant professor level, although candidates at a more senior academic level will be considered based on qualifications. This position is to begin in spring semester 2018. The position could be in either department or joint between both departments depending on the expertise of the successful candidate. As one of the world's premier public research universities, the University of Arizona is ranked 19th among public universities and 29th overall in research expenditures by the National Science Foundation. The Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering is the largest department in the College of Engineering and has interests and established strengths in experimental and computational fluid mechanics and multiscale computational mechanics. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering has established strengths and interests across a wide spectrum of materials systems, phenomena, and applications including high temperature ceramics and integrated computational materials science and engineering. Both departments have a long history of interdisciplinary collaborative research and education. Details about the AME and MSE Departments, respectively, can be found at: http:// http://www.ame.arizona.edu//, http://www.mse.arizona.edu/. Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision insurance plans; life insurance and disability programs; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; state and optional retirement plans; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
