Mechanical Engineering – Mechanics of Materials

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Johns Hopkins
University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position
in the general area of the mechanics of materials under extreme conditions.
Experiments, modeling and simulations that address mechanics and materials
issues at high strain rates, high pressures and dynamic conditions are of
particular interest, but all outstanding candidates will be considered.
Preference will be given to applicants at the assistant professor level, but exceptionally
qualified candidates at all ranks will be considered.

It is expected that the successful candidate for this
position will be an integral member of the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute
(, a multidivisional institute devoted to advancing the
fundamental science associated with materials and structures under extreme
conditions. The Institute includes strong collaborations with other
universities, national labs and corporate affiliates, and currently houses two
independent research centers.

The successful candidate must have an earned doctorate in
mechanical engineering or related fields, and is expected to establish a
strong, independent, internationally recognized research program as well as
contribute fully to both undergraduate and graduate instruction. The candidate
will continue a strong tradition of excellence in Mechanics and Materials at
Johns Hopkins.

All applications should be submitted electronically to: Electronic applications (submitted as a single PDF
document) should include a cover letter describing the principal expertise and
accomplishments of the applicant, a curriculum vita, and statements of teaching
and research interests. The candidate should also arrange to have three
reference letters sent independently as pdf documents to with the candidate's name included in the filename. The application review process
will begin on January 20, 2014, but applications will be accepted until the
position is filled. The Department is committed to building a diverse
environment; women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. The Johns
Hopkins University is an EEO/AA Employer.
