Mechanical Engineering Faculty, Multiple Positions - Worcester Polytechnic Institute

The Mechanical Engineering Department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has three faculty positions available at the assistant professor level.

Advanced Manufacturing
Research areas of interest include: advanced materials processing, additive manufacturing, digital manufacturing, and sensor development.

Computational Materials Engineering
Research areas of interest include: Product design, material selection, and material processing methods by linking materials models at multiple length scales. Application of integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) to alloy development and process optimization. Modeling techniques that represent the micrometer scale such as dislocation dynamic codes for metals and phase field models for multiphase materials.

Thermal/Aerospace Engineering
Research areas of interest include: turbomachinery, aircraft propulsion, combustion, aeroacoustics, multiphase flows, or other closely related areas.


Each candidate will be expected to develop an externally funded research program and teach relevant undergraduate and graduate courses and is required to have a PhD or equivalent degree in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, materials science & engineering, or a relevant discipline.
