Open Date: Sep 22, 2023

Deadline: Nov 17, 2023 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

The is engaged in an aggressive, multi-year hiring effort for tenure-track professors of all ranks whose interests are aligned with the

Applicants from all materials-related research areas are invited to apply, especially those with expertise in Structural Materials for lightweighting, extreme environments, energy and sustainable manufacturing.

We especially welcome candidates with diverse experiences and perspectives, who will enhance the education, training and mentorship of our students and enrich our intellectual community.

Penn Engineering strongly supports dual career couples, and we welcome and encourage inquiries about dual career assistance (for academic and non-academic opportunities) at an early stage of the recruitment process.

Structural Materials: The field of structural materials has been invigorated in recent years by new approaches in materials processing, such as the creation of high-entropy/multicomponent alloys, additive manufacturing, and high-strain rate deformation approaches. This has led to new materials for applications in lightweighting, extreme environments, energy and sustainability. Furthermore, data-driven computational methods and advanced materials characterization techniques have allowed deep insights into the atomic scale origins of the structure/processing/property relationships that control mechanical response. We seek candidates at all ranks whose research focuses on structural materials, broadly emphasizing experimental science and engineering, theory, or both. Review of applications will begin immediately with a target deadline of November 17, 2023.

Candidates are encouraged to apply early in order to be given full consideration.


Must have a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering, or related disciplines.
