Prospective Students

The MDI department emphasizes a data driven perspective of materials discovery and design. We offer a unique program on the use of materials informatics that links experimental and computational perspectives of materials science and engineering.

Academically qualified students from all fields of science and engineering are welcome to apply. Basic admission requirements follow UB guidelines.

Prospective Faculty

MDI is recruiting tenure track faculty for multiple positions that include assistant, associate and full professor.

The establishment of the MDI provides a unique opportunity for faculty to be part of an economic renaissance in the Buffalo-Niagara region that will lead Western New York as a global hub for advancing research and education. This provides new faculty with the opportunity to be engaged and grow in a dynamic international border city that offers a high quality of life, affordable housing, and a vibrant cultural and arts scene.
