The University of Tennessee has an opening for a Research Assistant/Associate/ Full Professor in Materials Development for Extreme Fusion Environments. The successful candidate will be working with a new University of Tennessee-Oak Ridge Innovation Institute (UT-ORII) project developing materials for extreme applications with a focus on fusion environments.

This work will be focused on developing new alloys and composite materials for extreme environment applications, where high temperature, irradiation, plasma erosion, magnetic field, and coupled conditions are critical bottlenecks. The research focus shall encompass design, synthesis, and scale-up of these materials, accelerated by center-wide experiment-theory feedback loops evaluating magnetic properties, mechanical properties, radiation resistance, and high temperature performance in addition to microstructural
