Department of Materials Science & Engineering

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level in the areas of information storage, electronic, or photonic materials. Applicants should hold an earned doctorate in Materials Science and Engineering or in a related field, and should have outstanding potential for establishing an independent research program and for teaching materials science at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The applicant should also have the ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment, as participation in interdepartmental programs and interaction with students and faculty in other disciplines will be expected. The department is interested in applicants with research focused on materials and device structures for informatin storage, and that can participate in our Center for Research on Information Storage Materials (CRISM) and/or interact with the electronic and photonic materials efforts at Stanford. Other individuals with exceptional promise in materials science and engineering who have outstanding records of accomplishment in closely related areas of research and teaching will also be considered.

The department also seeks an individual who is committed to excellence in teaching and to the mentoring of students. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the teaching program of the department by offering core courses in areas such as structures, thermodynamics, and electrical, optical and magnetic properties of materials, as well as by developing new curricula on informatin storage, electronic or photonic materials.

Applications should include a summary of educational and professional backgrounds, a current list of published work, evidence of teaching experience and the names of at least three referees who may be consulted by the search committee regarding the candidate's work. An indication of how the candidate's experience matches the position described above should also be given. Applicants are encouraged to write brief descriptions of their plans for future research and how those plans might be realized in a Stanford setting, as well as to submit similar statements on teaching, focusing especially on their vision of teaching in materials science and engineering. The appointment is expected to be made during the 2000 calendar year; applications should be submitted by 15 August 2000 to:
