MIT Faculty Position in Computational Mechanics

The Department of Mechanical Engineering seeks an outstanding
individual at the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor
without tenure, in the area of Computational Mechanics.

Applicants must hold an earned doctorate by the time of appointment in
an appropriate field and must have a demonstrated ability to carry out
outstanding research; they must also have a strong record of, or
promise for, exceptional teaching.  Specifically, applicants must
be strong in solid mechanics, and must have demonstrated strength to
advance the frontiers of research in modeling, computation, and
simulation as practiced in engineering and the sciences underpinning
engineering.  The computational mechanics research should address
the development of novel, robust methods of analysis, and probe deeply
into multi-scale and multi-physics phenomena in a new or emerging
field.  Topical areas of interest are broad, and may include the
design of new materials for extreme loading conditions,
nano-engineering, renewable energy sources, bio-engineering, and the
medical sciences.

Applicants should send a curriculum vita, a research statement, a
teaching statement, and copies of not more than three publications.
They should also arrange for four individuals to submit letters of
recommendation on their behalf. This information must be entered
