oregon state school of mechanical industrial and manufacturing engineering

Faculty Openings

We invite applications for two tenure-track assistant professor faculty positions. We seek candidates with experience in experimental and/or computational research. Candidates should have an original and high-impact research program with strong potential for sustained growth and external funding. Given the university’s recent investment in a Collaborative Innovation Complex with world-class supercomputing capabilities and laboratories, applicants interested in multi-scale/multi-physics challenges are especially encouraged. Applications are currently being accepted. Please apply before December 1, 2022, the date when we will start to review applications.

The hiring priority for one of these positions is aerospace engineering. The successful applicant will be an important part of our rapidly growing aerospace engineering programs. Recent developments in aerospace engineering at Oregon State University include a new collaborative Aerospace Research Center and Laboratory, an upgrade of the aerospace engineering minor into a specialization, and the hiring of an Executive Director for Aerospace Research Programs.

The hiring priority for the other position is advanced manufacturing. The school is particularly interested in candidates whose research connects the material design phase with manufacturing through multi-scale and multi-physics modeling of process–structure–property relationships.
