Tenure-Track Assistant or Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering

 

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering in the Tagliatela College of Engineering at the University of New Haven invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor of mechanical engineering with a focus on advanced manufacturing beginning Fall 2021. Candidates with strong teaching experience and scholarly record may be considered for an associate professor rank. The department has twelve full-time faculty members. Its two B.S. programs in Mechanical Engineering, and Industrial and Systems Engineering are accredited by ABET.

 

Connecticut is home to companies such as Sikorsky (Lockheed Martin), Pratt and Whitney, RBC Bearings, Electric Boat (General Dynamics), and Medtronic, and has an annual output of over $30 billion in manufacturing. With nearly one of every ten Connecticut employees working in the manufacturing sector, there is a significant opportunity for advanced manufacturing in Connecticut.

 

Qualifications:

  • A Ph.D. in mechanical engineering or a closely related discipline and a BS in mechanical or manufacturing engineering or a closely related discipline from an accredited university. A minimum of two years of practical experience is preferred.
  • Demonstrated teaching excellence in the areas of advanced manufacturing technologies, including additive manufacturing materials for aerospace, defense and biomedical, and mechatronics.
  • Ability to develop a focus area in advanced manufacturing at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills – in the classroom, with colleagues, and in written work.
  • Familiarity with course and program assessment and with the ABET accreditation process.
  • Record of scholarly accomplishments consistent with the desired rank, including successful grant funding and notable publications.
  • Demonstrated ability to forge relationships with industrial partners to benefit students; industrial experience will be considered favorably.
  • Authorization to work in the U.S.

 

Responsibilities: The successful candidate will be responsible for developing courses and teaching in the new advanced manufacturing focus area at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The candidate is also expected to teach in the general area of thermal/fluids and/or energy courses such as renewable energy, solar energy and energy efficiency. There is potential for the candidate to coordinate the Sikorsky Archives. The candidate is expected to develop funded research and continue scholarly work. Additional responsibilities include advising students, student recruitment, coordination of ABET-related activities, and participating in university committees.
