Tenure-track Faculty at Eastern Michigan University in Tribology, Nanomechanics, or Solid Mechanics

The Depart­ment of Physics and Astronomy invites ap­plications for a tenure-track position in physics in the area of experimental nanomechanics/tribology starting Fall 2016. Re­spon­si­bilities include: teaching a full range of classes (from introductory to graduate level) in physics, especially mechanics; lead­ing mechanics-related activities; performing departmental service; and conducting scholarly activity. Minimum qualifications: A master's degree plus 18 semester hours.  Preferred qualifications: Ph.D. in physics, postdoctoral experience in an area related to experimental surface nanomechanics/tribology which complements ongoing research within the department, a plan for revitalizing engineering mechanics courses, a strong commitment to undergraduate education and research, and a strategy for seeking external funding and research support.  The Department has research facilities that include SPM, nanoindentation, confocal Raman microscopy, and localized electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.  Teaching commitment is 12 credit hours per semester; opportunities exist for research release time. See for more information. Submit a letter of application, documented evidence of a strong commitment to teaching, a statement of teaching approach, and a statement of research achievements and plans, along with a resume, including the names and contact information of three ref­er­ences here.
