Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science Assistant Faculty Position - Duke University

The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science (MEMS) of the Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position starting in September 2018. Candidates in the broad area of mechanical engineering are encouraged to apply, but preference will be given to those whose research falls in the areas of robotics, design, manufacturing, machine learning, acoustics, dynamics and vibrations, energy, or systems. The Pratt School of Engineering is seeking to grow its strengths in interdisciplinary research, and we are particularly interested in candidates with the potential to bridge multiple departments. Where appropriate, candidates may be considered for joint appointments in other departments, such as Electrical and Computer Engineering. We anticipate hiring at the level of Assistant Professor, although truly exceptional candidates may be considered at the Associate or Full Professor level.
