The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Houston (UH), Cullen College of Engineering seeks a highly motivated and creative person for a faculty position to build a world-class research program on manufacturing with emphasis on energy applications. Flexible electronics manufacturing is another area of interest.  The University of Houston has recently made a significant investment to establish a 74-acre Energy Research Park (ERP) and has now established an 13,000 sq.ft. state-of-the-art Energy Devices Fabrication Laboratory in the Park. Details of the ERP can be found at  Thin film-based manufacturing and continuous as opposed to batch processing, including roll-to-roll coating are particular focus areas.

The appropriate candidate would have demonstrated internationally-recognized leadership in research in the critical manufacturing topics such as process modeling and design, on-line diagnostics, manufacturing tool modeling and design, high throughput processing, tailoring materials architecture for superior performance and low cost, non-destructive evaluation of materials properties and reliability in applications. Manufacturing research experience in the target areas of energy, flexible electronics and thin films is highly preferred. Successful candidates must have a strong, demonstrated scholarship as well as a commitment to teaching.

This position requires a Ph.D. in engineering or related discipline.  Interested persons should submit a curriculum vita detailing academic and professional experiences, publications, research support, research and teaching summaries, and research and teaching goals/vision to Prof. Venkat Selvamanickam, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, University of Houston, Houston, Texas, 77204-4006.  The target start date is Fall 2013.
