Faculty Positions in

  • Materials Chemistry and Chemical Engineering,
  • Condensed Matter Physics,
  • Materials Science and Engineering 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. Inquiries should be directed to Prof. Phil Duxbury in the Physics/Astronomy Department (, Prof. Don Morelli in the Engineering College ( or to Prof. Jim McCusker in the Chemistry Department ( 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, East Lansing, MI 48824-2320. Consideration of applications will commence November 15th and will continue until the positions are filled. MSU is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. MSU is committed to achieving excellence through cultural diversity. The university actively encourages applications and/or nominations of women, persons of color, veterans and persons with disabilities.
