Advanced Metallic Materials for Transportation
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering and at The
Ohio State University (mse.osu.edu) invites applications for a
senior-level tenure-track position in metallic structural
materials for transportation applications. This position is one
of three positions in a cluster hire initiative in the College of
Engineering among the departments of Materials Science and
Engineering (MSE), Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE),
and Integrated Systems Engineering (ISE). The faculty appointed
through this cluster hire initiative will assist in defining and
building a center of excellence in the design and manufacture of
lightweight and high-performance structures and assemblies. The
successful applicant will be expected to complement existing
manufacturing, modeling and characterization strengths in the OSU
science and engineering community. Research leadership is
implicit in this senior-level appointment and the successful
applicant will be expected to attract significant federal funding
and industrial partnerships for advanced structural materials in
automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, or other
