The Department of Mechanical
Engineering and Materials Science (MEMS) at the University of
Pittsburgh (Pitt) invites applications for a tenure track or
tenured position in the Thermal Sciences area. Successful applicants should have the ability to build an externally
funded research program, as well as
contribute to the teaching mission of the Mechanical Engineering programs.
Applicants should have a PhD or ScD in Mechanical Engineering or a related
field. Applicants with outstanding track records at the associate professor
level are encouraged to apply.
We are seeking applicants who have strong
interdisciplinary interests, who can collaborate across disciplines of
engineering. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in the
The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science has
28 tenured or tenure-track faculty members who generate over $6 million in
annual research expenditures. The
National Research Council (NRC) has recently placed Mechanical Engineering at
Pitt as top 20 among public universities.
The Department maintains cutting edge experimental and computational
facilities in advanced manufacturing and design, materials for extreme conditions,
biomechanics and medical technologies, modeling and simulation, energy system technologies,
and quantitative and in situ materials characterization.
