Faculty Position --- Assistant Professor Tenure-Track
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level. Under special circumstances involving exceptional academic merit, candidates at the untenured Associate Professor level may be considered. We seek applicants with significant accomplishments in materials research in its broadest sense that may include materials characterization involving structure characterization, characterization through property measurement (e.g. nano-mechanics, nano-electronics), theoretical modeling, etc. Stanford University has excellent facilities in these areas as represented by the Stanford Nanocharacterization Laboratory (SNL), the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS), the Stanford Nano Center (SNC), the Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF), the Center for Biomedical Imaging at Stanford (CBIS) and the X-ray facilities at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). The successful candidate is expected to play a major role at one of these facilities.
The successful candidate is also expected to make major contributions to large scale multidisciplinary research and to contribute significantly to leadership in Stanford’s nanoscience and technology efforts which span several Departments and Schools, including faculty in the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, and Humanities and Sciences. We are looking for a motivated individual who is committed to excellence in teaching and to the mentoring of students in multidisciplinary materials research applied to energy and the environment, biomedical research and imaging, nano-mechanical or nano-electronic properties and devices, etc.
Applicants should include a summary of their educational and professional backgrounds, a current list of published work, and the names of at least three referees who may be consulted by the search committee. An indication of how the candidate’s experience matches the position described above should also be given. Applicants are encouraged to write brief descriptions of their plans for future research and how those plans might be realized in a Stanford setting, as well as to submit similar statements on teaching, focusing especially on their vision of teaching to students in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The appointment is expected to be made during the forthcoming academic year. Please apply online at: http://soe-apps.stanford.edu/FacultyApplyMSE. Applications should be submitted by March 31, 2013. Questions should be directed to, Search Committee Chair, c/o Carol Scott, via electronic mail to email@example.com.
