Tenure-Track Position, Polymer Optoelectronics and Polymer Physics/Physical Chemistry/Engineering at The University of Southern Mississippi

The School of Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Southern Mississippi invites applications for two positions at the Assistant Professor level. The successful candidates will build an internationally recognized, externally funded research program in their area of expertise, direct undergraduate and graduate student research, and contribute to the functioning of the school, college, university, and scientific community through professional service. They must also be capable of teaching polymer science and engineering courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. They will be expected to engage in collaborative research proposals and projects involving advanced polymeric materials across the school and disciplinary boundaries with private, state and federal funding entities. Applicants must hold an earned Ph.D. in polymer science and engineering, physical chemistry, chemical physics or a closely related discipline, and possess a demonstrated record of intellectual and academic accomplishments that will qualify her or him for appointment at the appropriate level.

1. Polymer Optoelectronics (preferred qualifications)
Candidates with demonstrated expertise in optoelectronic materials, interface characterization, and/or correlated electronic materials are preferred. Areas such as high-throughput computation and machine learning are also welcome.
2. Polymer Physics/Physical Chemistry/Engineering (preferred qualifications)
Candidates with the ability to connect and integrate experimental and computational polymer science and engineering and interest in engaging in transdisciplinary research will be given preference but candidates all areas of polymer science and engineering are welcome.
