Open Faculty Positions

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering is engaged in an aggressive, multi-year hiring effort for multiple tenure-track assistant professors whose interests are aligned with the School of Engineering and Applied Science’s strategic plan.

Applicants from all materials-related research areas are invited to apply, especially those with expertise in quantum and semiconductor materials. Penn Engineering also has signature initiatives, Quantum devices and engineering (QUIEST), and Energy and sustainability.

Exceptional applicants for tenured associate and full professor positions may also be considered. We especially welcome candidates with diverse experiences and perspectives, who will enhance the education, training and mentorship of our students and enrich our intellectual community. Penn Engineering strongly supports dual career couples, and we welcome and encourage inquiries about dual career assistance (for academic and non-academic opportunities) at an early stage of the recruitment process.
