|Degree and area of specialization:
The candidate must have a doctorate degree in Mechanical Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Industrial Engineering, or a closely related field and demonstrate excellence in research and teaching.
|Minimum number of years and type of relevant work experience:
Candidates will have a distinguished academic record, exceptional potential in establishing a world-class research program, and a commitment to high-quality undergraduate and graduate instruction.
The College of Engineering is strongly committed to having a diverse faculty, staff, and student body. Candidates from groups that are traditionally under-represented in engineering are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Grainger Institute for Engineering and the departments of Mechanical Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, and Industrial and Systems Engineering at UW- Madison seek candidates to join their interdisciplinary theme in the area of advanced manufacturing. We seek candidates with specialization spanning from fundamental, e.g., materials design for new manufacturing processes, to applied, e.g., the development of new manufacturing processes, integration of design with manufacturing, and enterprise-level manufacturing optimization. We are especially interested in candidates who have expertise in the following broad areas:
-Development of advanced manufacturing processes with an emphasis on polymer and composite processes or metal and ceramic additive systems.
-Design of materials which either (1) possess optimal properties and new functionalities arising from advanced manufacturing processes and/or (2) possess properties which enable manufacturability via advanced processes.
-Integrated Design and Manufacturing; novel programmable additive, subtractive, and hybrid manufacturing systems; new system architectures supporting design of complex systems, and cybermanufacturing
-Novel approaches for manufacturing systems (including plant- and enterprise-level) modeling, analysis, management, and optimization. Examples include but not limited to smart and connected manufacturing systems, data-enabled supply chain management, manufacturing system automation, and quality and productivity improvement.
Candidates with expertise that spans a set of these targeted area and transcends the traditional boundaries of a single department are especially encouraged to apply. Candidates will be appointed as a tenure-track faculty in one of the academic departments listed above and will be appointed as a Fellow within the Grainger Institute for Engineering (http://graingerinstitute.engr.wisc.edu).
The Grainger Institute for Engineering serves as a research incubator within the College of Engineering. The Institute fosters a transdisciplinary research and educational environment and provides the infrastructure to address grand technological challenges. Current areas of focus are advanced manufacturing, energy and sustainability, biomanufacturing, neuroengineering, big data and machine learning, sensors and sensing, and smart and connected healthcare. New research directions will continue to be launched and nurtured within the Institute.
