Faculty Position in Solid Mechanics, Cornell University
The Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell
University, Ithaca,
New York invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in solid
mechanics and
mechanics of materials. Candidates must hold a doctorate in an appropriate
field and are
expected to establish an outstanding, funded research program as well as
contribute fully to
both undergraduate and graduate instruction. Applicants at the level of
Assistant Professor
are preferred but appointments at the Associate Professor level will be
considered. Salary
and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
We seek outstanding individuals engaged in theoretical, computational
and/or experimental
research with a strong interest in collaborations that combine these
elements. Applicants
should have solid mechanics as their core discipline. Areas of interest
include, but are not
limited to, atomistic or molecular mechanics, large scale computation and
modeling, novel structural and materials systems, and mechanical behavior
of a broad range
of materials such as soft materials, biological and biomimetic materials,
structural materials,
and active materials. Applications consistent with traditional and emerging
mechanical and
aerospace engineering products, processes and systems such as lightweight
materials and structures for energy systems, smart systems, nano-scale
systems, and others
will be considered.
Cornell University fosters interdisciplinary research through Centers and
an atmosphere of
cooperation. Faculty in solid mechanics have outstanding opportunities to
interact with a
number of programs across the university including the Cornell Center for
Research, the High Energy Synchrotron Source, the Nanofabrication Facility,
and the
Cornell Center for a Sustainable Future, and to collaborate with colleagues
across campus.
The Sibley School and the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace
diversity and seek
candidates who will foster a climate that attracts students of all races,
nationalities and
genders. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to
apply. Cornell
University seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, has a Dual
Career program, and is
a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to
with dual career searches.
Please submit an application on line, at https://bsa.mae.cornell.edu.
Applications should
include a cover letter, a complete resume, a statement of research and
teaching interests and
experiences, and the names of at least three references. All applications
received by
December 31, 2010 will receive full consideration this academic year.
Applications will be
evaluated on an ongoing basis until all positions are filled.
Cornell University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action
educator and employer.
