Job Summary

Since 1997, the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering (www.me.gatech.edu) at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA has developed academic and research activities on the European campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Tech Lorraine (GTL).

The position is a permanent position with GTL as an employer, with the title of assistant/associate/full Professor or enseignant-chercheur, at GTL and Adjunct Professor with Georgia Institute of Technology. Salary and benefits are implemented at GTL according to French rules and GTL HR policies.

The research activity is pursued within the framework of the GT-CNRS-IRL 2958, a joint research laboratory between the Georgia Institute of Technology and the CNRS (French interdisciplinary public research organization). Existing research activity in Mechanical Engineering at GTL covers the areas of Acoustics and Mechanics of Materials. With this new position, we seek to establish an interdisciplinary group dedicated to the challenges of additive manufacturing. An expert in one or more of the following areas related to Additive Manufacturing (AM) is sought: computational materials development for AM, advanced metallic and multifunctional material systems, data-driven materials design and high-throughput approaches. An ideal candidate should possess a proven track record in the aforementioned topics and an internationally visible research profile. Research funding is expected to come primarily from French and EU sources (e.g., ANR, Region, H2020 Horizon Europe FP9, industry); Some US funding agencies allow funding outside the US, while others do not. The faculty can apply through GTRC as co-PI with a GT faculty on a grant/contract in the US, for work to be performed in Atlanta or in Metz.

M.S. students study at GTL and usually spend their final semester on the Atlanta campus. PhD students spend all or most of their time at the GTL campus. GTL does not grant academic degrees. All GTL students receive their degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology and are admitted according to the standards of excellence of Georgia Tech Atlanta.
