Faculty Position in Computational Solid Mechanics at the University of Virginia

Xiaodong Li's picture

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Virginia School of Engineering and Applied Science seeks outstanding candidates for the position of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor, with the rank being commensurate with experience level. Applicants should have a PhD in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering or a closely related field, a record of excellence in research, and commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The target area of expertise and research is computational solid mechanics. Of most interest are applicants who are developing new paradigms in solid mechanics modeling with applications that interface with existing departmental strengths, which include, but are not limited to biologically inspired mechanics, advanced manufacturing, biomechanics, aerospace structures, and composites.

The successful applicant will be expected to establish new, independent, externally funded research programs that broaden the department while building on existing strengths, and to teach solid mechanics courses (both fundamental theory and computational/numerical) at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Previous teaching and proposal writing experience is preferred.

To apply, candidates must submit a Candidate Profile through jobs@UVA, (https://jobs.virginia.edu), search on posting number 0613030.
