Faculty Positions in Sustainable Transportation Systems

The College of Engineering (COE) and the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) at the University of Michigan is seeking applicants for two tenure-track faculty position in the field of sustainable transportation systems. Successful applicants will hold a primary appointment in a COE department of their choosing with a portion of their appointment in UMTRI. A broad set of expertise in transportation and transportation-related areas will be considered for this position including transportation system modeling, intelligent transportation systems, and sustainable management of transportation infrastructure systems.

Faculty Position in Structural Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan seeks applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in the general area of Structural Engineering. Candidates at all levels will be considered. Applicants shall hold a doctorate degree in civil engineering or related field of study, have expertise in the large-scale testing of structural components or systems, and demonstrate an outstanding record of scholarship, professional leadership, and experience with externally-funded research commensurate with the rank of the candidate.

The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
