Job Description


Tenure-Track Faculty Positions
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Cambridge, MA

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE) seeks candidates for tenure track faculty positions to begin July 1, 2021 or on a mutually agreed date thereafter. Faculty duties include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, research, and supervision of student research in DMSE. The search is for candidates to be hired at the assistant professor level; under special circumstances, however, an untenured associate or senior faculty appointment is possible, commensurate with experience.

We seek candidates with proven excellence in research who have the vision and interest to contribute to science and engineering for design, synthesis, processing and manufacture of soft matter, molecular materials, and polymers. Examples include, but are not limited to, sustainable manufacturing and recyclability, bio-derived materials, materials for public health, and polymer and biomaterials chemistry. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Polymer Science and Engineering, or a related field by the start date of employment.


Application Details

Interested candidates should submit application materials electronically at https://faculty-searches.mit.edu/soe/dmse. Applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, 2-3 page statement of research and teaching interests and goals. In addition, candidates should provide a statement regarding their views on diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past and current contributions as well as their vision and plans for the future in these areas.

Each candidate should include the names and contact information of three reference letter writers. Letters should be uploaded by the deadline. Questions should be addressed to dmse-search@mit.edu. Applications will be evaluated as they are received, with fullest consideration given to those received by November 30, 2020.

We especially encourage minorities and women to apply because of MIT’s strong commitment to diversity in engineering education, research and practice.

MIT is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
