Faculty position in computational mechanics engineering science and mechanics department, Penn State University

Wei Hong's picture

The Engineering Science and Mechanics Department at The Pennsylvania State University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in computational mechanics at the assistant professor level. Exceptional candidates at the associate or full professor level will also be considered. Candidates are sought with a foundation and research interests in mechanics across all scales from the molecular to the macroscopic, including expertise in: efficient massive and nonlinear computations; molecular and multiscale simulations; innovative and efficient approaches to nonlinear FEM for large deformations, inhomogeneities, and/or inclusions; problems with evolving microstructure such as phase transitions and damage evolution; massively parallel simulations of large systems of equations; novel numerical/empirical approaches to modeling multiscale constitutive behavior of composite, biological or otherwise novel material systems.

Multidisciplinary research interests would be advantageous, particularly those related to the department’s strategic thrust areas: health monitoring of machines and people; neural and biomedical engineering; and bionanomaterials and technology. Candidates with teaching interests in numerical methods and engineering mathematics, as well as in emerging areas, are encouraged.

Qualifications for the positions include an earned Doctorate in mechanics or an area appropriate to the applicant’s field of specialization and a proven record of scholarly activities. Duties will include undergraduate and graduate teaching and scholarly research that will advance the state of the art of mechanics and engineering science. Collaboration with Penn State’s Institute for Computational Science, and Center for Computational Mathematics and Applications is encouraged. The department is committed to diversity and fostering a welcoming climate for all.

Review of applications will begin December 1, 2006. Applications will be considered until the position is filled. Please send a curriculum vitae, statement of professional interests, teaching philosophy and the names and addresses of four references to:

Attn: ESM Search Committee Chair
Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics
212 Earth-Engineering Sciences Building, Box 212
