Outstanding candidates with a PhD degree in any area related to materials science and engineering, quantum electronics and optical engineering, biomedical engineering, and energy science and engineering will be considered. Postdoctoral research experience is preferred. We provide: start-up fund of 2 to 5 million RMB; annual salary of 160 to 400k RMB; lab space: 100 to 150 m 2 ; house: 120 to 140 m 2 Please submit application materials, including: a) curriculum vitae, b) names and contact information of three references, c) three representative papers, d) research plan, and e) teaching plan, to Prof. Yi-qiang Qin via MSU is committed to achieving excellence through cultural diversity. The University actively encourages applications and/or nominations of women, persons of color, veterans and persons with disabilities. MSU is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer. The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Michigan State University (MSU) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of materials with a focus on the synthesis and characterization of advanced and complex materials. Competitive applicants will have a demonstrated record of excellence in the development, synthesis and experimental characterization of advanced structural materials, multifunctional materials and complex materials. The position is open to all levels. Applicants must hold an earned doctorate in a field related to the position focus, and demonstrate exceptional promise for high-quality research, teaching, and professional development. A tenured appointment will be considered for candidates with a recognized record of exceptional achievement. Given the crossdisciplinary nature of the research expertise sought, applicants should realize that the appointment (tenure home) will be in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. As such, the successful candidate will be expected to develop a strong and independent externally-funded research program that enhances the existing research activities in the areas of structural engineering, materials and mechanics in the CEE department. The appointee will be responsible for teaching undergraduate and graduate courses as part of the CEE department curricula. Interested individuals should submit an application for this position through: http://jobs.msu.edu/ and refer to position #6979. Applicants must submit a detailed resume, a teaching and research plan (3 pages maximum), and the names and contact information for three references. The application material should be accompanied by a cover letter stating the position specialty being applied to and a brief statement of their interest in the position. Applications will be reviewed on a continuing basis until the position is filled. For full consideration, applications should be received before December 31, 2013. Nominations or questions are welcome by contacting the search committee chair through email at CEE-SEMM-Search@egr.msu.edu MULTIPLE FACULTY POSITIONS, ALL RANKS Materials Science and Engineering The interdisciplinary Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University invites applications for multiple tenured or tenure-track faculty positions. Although we primarily seek candidates at the associate-and full-professor levels, exceptional candidates at the assistant-professor level will be also considered. Applicants must have an earned doctorate in materials science and engineering or an appropriate, closely related discipline. Specifi cally targeted are candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas: (a) Computational materials science; (b) Advanced polymer design, synthesis, and processing science; (c) Materials electrochemistry; and (d) Materials degradation and corrosion. Highly qualifi ed candidates in other areas of materials science and engineering will also be considered. The successful applicants will teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels; develop an independent, externally funded research program; participate in all aspects of the department's activities; and serve the profession. Strong written and verbal communication skills are required. Full position ad can be found at msen.tamu.edu with further details. Applicants should submit a cover letter stating the position they are interested in, curriculum vitae, teaching and research statements, and a list of four references (including postal addresses, phone numbers and email addresses) to the website: www.tamuengineeringjobs.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=54918 Full consideration will be given to applications
