Michigan State University is initiating an
aggressive, broad-based effort to expand its research and educational expertise
in complex materials for energy applications. As a cornerstone of this effort, we are
seeking outstanding candidates to fill six (or more) tenure-stream faculty
positions. Appointments can be made at any
level within the Departments of Chemistry, Physics and/or in one or more
of the Departments within the College
of Engineering. Research
in all areas of experimental or theoretical materials research will be
considered, with preference for candidates whose research agenda contributes to
building cross-disciplinary and cross-college collaborations. Michigan State has in place an extensive infrastructure for
the fabrication and characterization of materials and an established faculty
base in energy sciences and engineering. Institutional support for this
initiative is strong with concurrent formation of a center of research
excellence in complex materials, and further investments in faculty positions,
facilities and space are possible upon successful completion of the search.
should be directed to Prof. Phil Duxbury in the Physics/Astronomy Department (firstname.lastname@example.org), Prof. Don Morelli in the Engineering
College (email@example.com) or to Prof. Jim McCusker in the Chemistry Department (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications,
including a resume, publication list, a description of research plans, and the
names of at least four references should be sent to: Complex Materials Search
Committee, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Biomedical Physical Sciences
Building (BPS), Michigan State University,
