The Polytechnic School
Professor (all ranks) in Manufacturing
Location: Arizona State University – Polytechnic Campus

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) and The Polytechnic School (TPS) seeks applicants for tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in advanced manufacturing. Specifically those who will contribute to the academic programs, promote transdisciplinary teaching and research, and help the University to achieve its aspirations, including enabling student success, transforming society, valuing entrepreneurship, and conducting use-inspired research.

The Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering Program at The Polytechnic School is particularly interested in expanding the programs capabilities in the research areas that lie between the areas of basic research in the physics/materials/chemistry aspects of manufacturing processes and applied research at the production system and supply chain levels. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to: multi-material and composite manufacturing systems; hybrid additive-subtractive manufacturing process integration; scalable manufacturing at the limits of resolution, throughput, temperatures, and material properties; precision machining processes (e.g. micromachining & micro-EDM); complex, hierarchical and architected materials fabrication via additive manufacturing; manufacturing of bio‐compatible materials for biomedical applications; non-destructive testing-manufacturing integration; robotics and automation strategies for hybrid manufacturing; physics-based modeling of manufacturing processes; smart manufacturing with augmented reality, open software architectures, and cyber-physical manufacturing. At The Polytechnic School, the Manufacturing Research and Innovation Hub provides more than 15,000 ft2 of space with state-of-the-art additive manufacturing equipment and metrology systems. Additionally, ASU offers several user-facilities such as the Biodesign Institute, the LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Science, the Flexible Electronics and Display Center, and the Nanofab.

Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, adopt innovative educational practices in graduate and undergraduate education, develop and teach graduate and undergraduate courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate students, and undertake service activities. ASU strongly encourages transdisciplinary collaboration and use-inspired, socially relevant research. Successful candidates will be encouraged to expand expertise and collaborations in these areas.

Appointments will be at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank commensurate with the candidate’s
experience and accomplishments, beginning August 2018. Although the tenure home may be in any of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, The Polytechnic School is currently the most involved in the interest areas of this research.

Required qualifications:
• Doctorate in engineering, materials science and engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, industrial engineering, or a related field
• Demonstrated evidence of research capability and commitment to teaching excellence as appropriate to the candidate’s rank

Desired Qualifications:
• Demonstrated commitment to a collaborative, transdisciplinary approach to research and teaching

Review of applications will begin December 27, 2017; if not filled, reviews will occur on the 1st and 15th of each month thereafter until the search is closed. To apply, candidates will be asked to submit the following through their Interfolio Dossier:
• Cover Letter
• Curriculum Vitae
• Statement Describing Research Interests (two pages maximum)
• Statement Describing Teaching Interests and Philosophy (two pages maximum)
• Contact Information for Three References
