Tenure Track Faculty Position in Solid Mechanics and Structural Materials - University of California, Irvine

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at UC Irvine seeks applicants for a tenure-track position in the area of Solid Mechanics and Structural Materials. Candidates should ideally demonstrate the ability to build an active interdisciplinary research program in one of the following areas where MAE seeks to broaden its research portfolio:

  1. Computational mechanics and materials science, including in the areas of mesoscale modeling of deformation and materials processing, data-driven approaches to materials discovery and synthesis, and multi-scale and multi-functional modeling.
  2. In situ and in operando experimentation, including the development and deployment of new techniques compatible with electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction methods, to leverage recent investments in materials characterization facilities at UCI.

Research approaches that combine analytical/numerical and experimental techniques are particularly desirable. The above research areas notwithstanding, MAE primarily seeks energetic and impactful researchers, and so excellent candidates with expertise in any and all areas of solid mechanics and structural materials are welcome. In addition, a commitment to teaching and mentoring students should be demonstrated.
