Positions Available



We are seeking faculty candidates for a tenure track position in Quantum Materials, emphasizing materials synthesis. This position is part of a campus-wide cluster initiative to expand and broaden expertise in quantum science and engineering at UW-Madison. As part of the initiative there are new position vacancies in the Departments of Physics, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Materials Science & Engineering. It is anticipated that successful candidates will develop strong collaborations with existing quantum research at UW Madison, as well as with other hires under this cluster program, and with external research centers. For more information, please visit: http://go.wisc.edu/quantum-materials-search.


We are also participating in two searches through the Grainger Institute for Engineering.

  • Assistant Professor position in Advanced Manufacturing: The Grainger Institute for Engineering and the departments of Mechanical Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, and Industrial and Systems Engineering at UW- Madison seek candidates to join their interdisciplinary theme in the area of advanced manufacturing. We seek candidates with specialization spanning from fundamental, e.g., materials design for new manufacturing processes, to applied, e.g., the development of new manufacturing processes, integration of design with manufacturing, and enterprise-level manufacturing optimization.
