Job Description

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Virginia Tech seeks applications for tenure-track faculty position(s) at the assistant professor or associate professor level.  We are seeking candidates motivated to contribute to a collegial, interdisciplinary community with a strong tradition of both fundamental and applied research in the following two areas: (i) manufacturing metallurgy and (ii) quantum materials with emphasis on innovative material synthesis and advanced characterization.

The MSE department, with over 17 faculty members, 175 undergraduates, and 55 graduate students, has an ambitious plan to double its graduate student enrollment over the coming years. With the addition of a new department head and over 102,000 sq. ft. of teaching and laboratory space in the newly renovated Holden Hall, MSE is poised to build upon its current strengths and expand into new areas.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in metallurgy, physics, materials science or a closely related field by appointment start date, a strong record of academic accomplishments, and a proven ability to work collaboratively; a commitment to interdisciplinary research and instruction and a willingness to expand disciplinary boundaries to address complex technical and societal challenges. Tenured and tenure-track faculty are expected to initiate and develop independent research that is internationally recognized for excellence, conscientiously mentor research-oriented graduate students, teach effectively at both graduate and undergraduate levels, and serve the university and their professional communities. Position requires occasional travel to attend conferences and meetings.
