The Materials Engineering Department in the College of Engineering at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, is seeking a faculty colleague for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level. The faculty position is focused on metallurgy and the practical application of metals to industry. The MATE Department is a relatively small and dynamic community of collaborators meeting the technical challenges of the twenty-first century and contributing to our College's vision of leading engineering education. We emphasize excellence and innovation in teaching, collaboration, and collegiality.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering, metallurgy, or a closely related field. An undergraduate degree in these areas is also preferred. The successful candidate will be proficient in teaching basic and advanced metallurgy courses, involved in scholarly activity (research) in the metallurgy area, and enthusiastic about metals and metallurgy. Highly desired expertise areas include ferrous metals, nonferrous metals, corrosion, welding, and advanced joining, physical metallurgy, metallurgical thermodynamics and kinetics, metals processing (including but not limited to additive manufacturing, liquid metal processing, metal deformation processing), heat treatment, and the detailed connections between alloy microstructures and resulting properties. Industrial experience in metallurgy is welcome.
Demonstrated experience and commitment to student-centered learning and teaching, as well as the ability to collaboratively work in multidisciplinary settings is required. Demonstrated proficiency in written and oral use of the English language is required.
Closing Date/Time: Open until filled
