Associate/Full Professor Positions in "Advanced Materials" in Purdue University's College of Science

The Departments of Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy, Biological Sciences, and Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University invite applicants for multiple faculty positions at the rank of Associate/Full Professor, rank to be commensurate with experience, and departmental appointments to align with candidate's expertise and interests. Successful candidates hired at all faculty levels as part of this College-wide cluster search will help form the core of a new interdisciplinary Center for Advanced Materials, along with an already established dynamic group of Purdue College of Science faculty across all departments. Center faculty will create an interdisciplinary, globally competitive research presence in the design of new materials in which atomic and molecular-scale understanding and control of structure leads to transformative new capabilities at larger scales.
