Faculty positions available

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, is looking for outstanding candidates for faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Full Professor.

We are looking for candidates with significant achievements and future potential in the Materials Science and Engineering fields of Ceramics and Metals. Those candidates interested in a faculty position in the Department and are working in fields that include the interface between Biomaterials and Life Science should approach the Technion Human Health Initiative, while those who are working in fields that include the interface between Nanomaterials and Quantum Technology should approach the Technion’s Helen Diller Quantum Center. The Technion provides generous and competitive start-up packages, campus housing, and relocation packages for families.

Potential candidates are required to have a PhD (or equivalent degree) in Materials Science and Engineering or in a related field (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, or Biomedical Engineering) and to have demonstrated their ability to conduct qualitative research in Materials Science and Engineering. Faculty members are expected to establish an independent research group, obtain research funding from competitive sources, contribute their experience and knowledge to undergraduate and graduate students, and participate in the Department’s administrative activities.

The Technion is an employer that advocates for diversity and equality. Teaching at the Technion is done mainly in Hebrew, so knowledge of the language, or a willingness to learn it, is expected from all faculty members.

Potential candidates are requested to submit a formal application letter, an up-to-date resume that includes a full list of publications, a plan for the first five years of research, a brief teaching statement, a list of equipment required to set up an independent research lab, at least four names of independent experts in their field of research (including their email address and a link to their website).
