Open Positions

The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MME) at the University of Cincinnati currently has three Open Rank Faculty Searches in the Three Programs of the Department: Mechanical Engineering Program, Materials Science Engineering Program, Industrial Systems Engineering Program.


The Mechanical Engineering Program invites applications for multiple full-time tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professors rank in the areas; (i) vibration, control, structural dynamics and acoustics; (ii) theoretical and applied mechanics and simulation; (iii) advanced materials and manufacturing; (iv) bio health; and (v) energy and thermal-fluid systems. Rank, tenure, salary and startup funding are commensurate with credentials.

The Industrial and Systems Engineering Program invites applications for multiple full-time tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professors rank in the general areas of data analytics and optimization with emerging applications which include, but are not limited to, Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, cybersecurity, health systems, safety/ergonomics, supply chain management, energy systems, smart city, and advanced manufacturing. Rank, tenure, salary and startup funding are commensurate with credentials.

The Materials Science and Engineering program in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Cincinnati seeks to fulfill multiple full-time faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professors rank in all areas of materials science and engineering, with preference to advanced microscopy and characterization; surface and interfacial science; nanoscale heterostructures; hierarchically-organized materials, bio-synthetic hybrid assemblies; materials for environmental sustainability; energy storage and conversion such as solar harvesting, batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells; oxidation and corrosion; advanced materials processing; materials for high temperatures or extreme conditions; mechanical behavior; bio-inspired materials, and materials genomics and integrated computational modeling.
