The College of Engineering at Michigan Technological University invites applications for multiple faculty positions in all fields of engineering or computing. The positions are expected to be filled at the Assistant Professor level, but senior level individuals with exceptional records will also be considered. We seek faculty who will redefine their discipline by creating and exploiting new digital tools and techniques, and who will transform the university to one where all of our graduates seamlessly apply these emerging technologies in their chosen fields.

A PhD in an engineering discipline or a closely related field is required. The College of Engineering encourages minority and female applicants and is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all people. Applications are to be submitted online at http://www.jobs.mtu.edu/postings/7342. Candidates are asked to identify the department(s) most closely aligned with their background and research interests (see: www.mtu.edu/engineering/).

THE DEPARTMENT OF MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level. Senior level individuals with exceptional records will also be considered. Applicants for this position must have an earned Ph.D. degree in materials science and engineering or closely related discipline. Research thrust areas of interest include (but not limited to): (i) computer vision for microstructure analysis and feature extraction (ii) machine learning for automated mining of big data generated from digital instrumentation, including ’5 V’ problems associated with atomic to nanometer scale collection, manipulation and interpretation from atomic resolution STEM (iii) computer simulation for interpretation of imaging, diffraction, property measurements, etc. (iv) expert system development for accelerated design of new material compositions and discovery of processing-microstructure-property relationships. We seek candidates who will help define their discipline by creating and exploiting new digital tools and techniques and collaborate across experimental and computational materials research. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an externally funded research program in their area of interest while leading collaboration with other faculty, engage in both undergraduate and graduate teaching and contribute to professional service.
