Case Western Reserve University’s Engineering Strategic Hiring Initiative continues in 2012 and beyond with a focus on recruiting extraordinary faculty in the broad areas of advanced materials, energy and human health. Research clusters identified as strategic priorities and opportunities for the Case School of Engineering are Biomedical Imaging, Biomolecular Engineering, Brain Interfacing & Signal Analysis, Layered Polymeric Materials, Electrochemistry, Multi Scale Biomedical Systems & Computational Biology, Musculoskeletal Innovation, Photovoltaics & Lifetime Degradation, Smart Grid, Sustainable Manufacturing, and Translational Biomaterials.
We are currently seeking candidates with relevant experience in the area of fire and materials flammability. Candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas: fire dynamics, fire suppression, flammability of polymeric materials, polymer flammability mechanisms and the development of non-halogenated flame retarding agents are of particular interest.
Launched in 2010, the strategic hiring initiative has attracted outstanding junior and senior candidates interested in being part of a community determined to drive discoveries that improve people’s lives. The Case School of Engineering values interdisciplinary thinking, creative collaboration and entrepreneurial ideas. It also believes strongly in the vital importance of diversity within the professorial ranks, both in terms of women and underrepresented minorities.
Successful candidates will hold primary appointments in the Case School of Engineering, although in many instances they will be eligible for additional appointments within the School of Medicine or College of Arts and Sciences, among others.
Candidates seeking positions at the Assistant Professor level and higher should hold an earned doctorate in a field of engineering or related science and demonstrate promise for research and teaching excellence. Those seeking these positions should provide the names and contact information of three references in addition to a cover letter, research and teaching statements and CV. Candidates seeking positions at the Associate Professor level should have established a significant research reputation nationally and possess a record of extramural funding. Candidates seeking positions at the level of full Professor should be recognized internationally for research excellence, leadership and scholarship in their discipline.
