Dear Colleague,

I am pleased to inform you that the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, seeks applications for one faculty position. The position is at the tenure-track, Assistant Professor level in the areas of Energy Science and Micro/Nanoscale Sensors and Systems.

Topics of specialization within these areas include but are not limited to:

  1. Energy Science: combustion and primary energy conversion processes, design of energy systems, alternative energy technologies, energy efficient processes with basis in thermodynamics and heat transfer. Fundamental study of energy transfer in materials, devices and systems. Study of transport phenomena in advanced materials processing and manufacturing. Sustainability and climate change resilience (e.g., alternative energy technologies, efficient, sustainable and resilient water, food and energy production and distribution). Scalable surface and nanoscale engineering to improve the efficiency of large-scale thermal energy storage, CO2 sequestration and mitigation, and direct energy conversion processes such as solar-thermal power and oxyfuel combustion, the development of optimized hybrid energy conversion systems, as well as novel ultra-efficient active and passive energy conversion and energy storage systems.
  2. Micro/Nanoscale Systems Engineering: nanoscale engineering or engineering science in one of the fields of micro/nanoscale mechanics, materials, heat transfer, dynamics, materials processing and manufacturing, and device and system design along with the appropriate analytical and computational capabilities. Development of smart and inexpensive environmental monitoring and pollution protection/mitigation, disaster prevention, safety and security systems. Novel nanoscale sensing and actuation for application in smart and personalized healthcare, health diagnosis, monitoring and maintenance and human assistance, rehabilitation and exercise technologies.  Integrated low-cost gyroscopes, accelerometers, force and pressure sensors, novel bio-sensing techniques at the cellular and sub-cellular levels and non-invasive micro-surgery techniques; nanostructured biosystems, including artificial organs and drug test models; advanced and affordable point-of-care devices/systems to assist diagnostics for health monitoring, evaluation of disease status and treatments, and clinical interventions in centralized and decentralized locations.

For additional details, please consult the attached file. 

Thanking you in advance for your interest.
