Detailed Position Information

The Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at The University of Alabama invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions across all domains relevant to metallurgical and materials science and engineering. Candidates with particular research interests and expertise in advanced manufacturing of metallic materials that involve pursuit of a fundamental understanding of the processing-structure-property-performance relations for a variety of material systems, including experimental, modeling and simulation, and theoretical approaches, are of particular interest for one or more of these open positions. Those applicants with a focus on either fusion-based or solid-state additive manufacturing or both are also strongly encouraged to apply.

Successful applicants should either complement and build upon existing strengths of the department or have the potential to open up entirely new avenues of research outside of the scope of the department’s current efforts ( Candidates should describe in their research interests and plan section of their application materials how their area of research fits into context within the department, college, and university. To the extent that it may be appropriate, applicants should also consider the potential for interactions with the various University of Alabama Research Institutes ( Candidates will be considered for appointment at the rank of assistant or associate professor, commensurate with experience and qualifications. Candidates from under-represented groups in engineering are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering research and educational efforts span a wide range of topics from solidification and casting of metals to advanced characterization of materials to development of novel functional materials including solar cells and batteries More information about the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering can be found at The department’s research portfolio has continued to rapidly expanded over the last few years, along with an unprecedented growth in research funding, doctoral student enrollment, and research facility infrastructure. For example, recent experimental capability additions in the department include an atomization facility for the production of metallic powders (, a brand new Gleeble 3500 instrument for thermomechanical testing of metallic materials, and a newly reinvigorated foundry for both research and education. The department prides itself in its highly interdisciplinary and collegial research atmosphere. Extensive collaboration opportunities exist within the department and across the College of Engineering and university as a whole.

Applicants must have an earned doctorate (Ph.D.) in materials science and engineering, metallurgy, or another closely related field.
