The School of Materials Science and Engineering (SMSE), Xi’an Jiaotong University (XJTU), invites applications for multiple new faculty positions (assistant professor, associate professor and professor). As a “211” and “985” school, XJTU is a one of the top universities in China, with a dynamic research atmosphere. The university is planning to make unprecedented investments, emphasizing cutting-edge research and innovations, to attract world-class researchers to its ranks.

SMSE has 103 full time faculty, staff and over 700 full-time and part-time graduate students in three academic departments-the Department of Materials Science, the Department of Materials Physics and Chemistry and the Department of Materials Processing Engineering. It is experiencing very rapid growth in new programs, faculty, research funding and space.

All the successful candidates must have a doctorate degree in Materials Science and Engineering or closely related fields. They will hold tenured (or tenure-track, for assistant professors) appoint ments at SMSE and receive sizable start-up research grants from XJTU. Salary and compensation will be commensurate with experience and at a level competitive with similar positions in the US.

Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the positions are filled. The application package should include a CV, a list of publications and a short summary of previous and planned research activities. Three (3) Letters of Reference should be arranged to be sent directly to:
