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

Applicants from all materials-related research areas are invited to apply, especially those with expertise in quantum and semiconductor materials.

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.

Quantum and Semiconductor Materials: Discovery and engineering of new materials along with novel device platforms will be the core enablers of new technologies. Foundational research on new and emerging quantum and semiconductor materials, characterization and their integration into novel devices will have a significant impact in ushering in a new era of transformational technologies, including but not limited to: materials growth with atomically precise control, novel symmetry/topology-driven quantum materials, new material systems and their heterogeneous integration into precisely controlled architectures. Meanwhile, development of new probes for local and global property measurements is required to accurately characterize novel materials and devices and measure the quantum states as they are prepared, manipulated and transported. We seek candidates with expertise in the areas of materials design and engineering, growth and characterization of their novel structures, properties and functionalities for future quantum and semiconductor technologies. Review of applications will begin immediately with a target deadline of December 1, 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.
