UNT System Overview
Welcome to the University of North Texas System, or UNT World as we like to
call ourselves. UNT World includes the University of North Texas in Denton,
the University of North Texas at Dallas and the University of North Texas
Health Science Center in Fort Worth. We are the only university system based
exclusively in the robust Dallas-Fort Worth region and we are committed to
transforming lives and creating economic opportunity through education. We are
growing with the DFW region, enrolling a record 47,000+ students across our
system and awarding nearly 12,000 degrees each year.
Posting Title Research Assistant Professor
Department UNT-Mechanical Engineering-130340
College/School College of Engineering
Job Location Denton
Full Time/Part Time Full-Time
The department of Mechanical Engineering provides a BS in Mechanical and
Energy Engineering which prepares students for a career in the ever-growing
fields of energy and sustainability. Undergraduates who choose to pursue a
bachelor's degree in mechanical and energy engineering will combine
fundamentals of mechanical engineering with a broad specialization on subjects
related to energy production, management, and distribution. For graduate
students, our programs will offer opportunities to learn fundamental and
applied knowledge compatible with mechanical engineering, renewable energy,
energy modelling, manufacturing, and fossil fuels.
The department also offers engineering technology programs that are based on
applications of technology to solve engineering problems. You have
Construction Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology or
Engineering Management to choose from. These programs introduce experiential
learning activities in virtually every course, and emphasize hands-on
laboratory activities with fewer instances requiring the abstract manipulation
of mathematics. ETEC graduates are in high demand and work side-by-side with
other engineering graduates in a variety of technical fields. Students can
also pursue MS in Engineering Technology degree.
This position is required to work closely with UNT faculty colleagues, and
researchers at sponsoring agencies on computational materials
science/mechanics. The position would require strong background in elasticity,
plasticity, computational mechanics, and/or process modeling as well as strong
familiarity with one or more of the large modeling and simulation software.
Experience with high strain rate testing and advanced manufacturing processes
Minimum qualifications include an earned doctorate in Mechanical Engineering
or a closely-related field. A strong publication record and the potential to
succeed in securing research funding and mentoring graduate students are
Preferred qualifications include experience with high strain rate deformation
of materials, knowledge of friction stir processing and additive
manufacturing, and microstructure-property linkages in metallic materials.
