Chalmers is looking for a Professor in Structural Mechanics at the Division of Material and Computational Mechanics (due to the retirement of Prof. Kenneth Runesson).
The division has about 10 faculty members and 15 PhD students. Our research efforts in this active field have a strong focus on the design of high-performing, durable and reliable infrastructures for a sustainable society. Related to this goal, there is a strong social need for the development of the necessary material models, design and computational methods in order to exploit this area to the fullest. We have an established high profile research in structural mechanics within Chalmers; in particular, together with research groups at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Our environment combines a deep understanding of fundamental principles of classical solid and fluid mechanics with experimental technology, materials modelling and computational methodology. As a consequence, we are addressing a number of complex civil engineering problems of interdisciplinary character, involving structural engineering, architectural design, geotechnics, building physics and materials development.
You are expected to have the full range of qualifications, experience, and abilities to offer the leadership and fulfil the main responsibilities of the position, including, amongst others:
• proven track record of, and high potential for, high quality scientific research, as evidenced by publication records and/or letters of recommendation
• capability to be creative in developing new innovative programs that would differentiate the division’s activity in “structural mechanics” from other institutions, to attract more high-quality researchers and students
• capability to attract and to lead large projects with national and international partners
• you must be a skilled educator and accustomed to teaching and supervision at both undergraduate and graduate levels. For this reason, we place a great deal of emphasis on your pedagogical portfolio
• doctoral degree in civil or mechanical engineering, or a related field like applied physics
