The University of Cincinnati, a premier, public, urban research university ranked as one of America’s top 26 public research universities by the National Science Foundation, is located in beautiful southwest Ohio. This great region, positioned along the banks of the scenic Ohio River reaches across portions of three states. Cincinnati is a vibrant metropolis full of culture & history and overflowing with endless events & attractions. The City of Cincinnati is also known for a strong arts culture; including Aronoff Center, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, Cincinnati Museum Center and Cincinnati Art Museum. Greater Cincinnati is also home to nine Fortune 500 companies and 2 Fortune 100 companies.

Material Science and Engineering Program Position in Physical and Mechanical Metallurgy
Candidates are sought with research specialties in physical and mechanical metallurgy with emphasis on lightweight alloys, high-temperature alloys and/or additive manufacturing of metals. Qualifications include a doctorate in materials science and engineering or closely related discipline and a record of scholarly achievement. Expertise in microstructural characterization including diffraction and analytical/high-resolution electron microscopy and spectroscopy are desirable. The successful candidate is expected to develop a strong funded research program, supervise graduate research, publish in archival journals, and teach graduate and undergraduate courses in the metallurgy and materials characterization.

The Materials Science and Engineering Program has a long history in metallurgical engineering dating back to 1950 as can be found at http://www.min.uc.edu/me/mse/materials-science-and-engineering. There are active research programs in surface science, advanced mechanical surface treatments like laser shock peening, high temperature and lightweight alloys, nanotechnology for energy applications, flexible solar cells, nano-medicine, ceramic composites and structure of soft matter.
