Job Description

The Engineering Fundamentals Department in the College of Engineering, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida is seeking to fill a non-tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level. The department seeks a candidate who can add to the department’s expertise in engineering education pedagogy and its leadership in teaching within the College of Engineering.

Candidates must hold a master’s degree in engineering and preference will be given to candidates who hold a terminal degree in engineering education. Candidates must be capable of teaching one or more first or second year general engineering courses, specifically Introduction to Engineering Design, Introductory Computer Programming (i.e., MATLAB), Engineering Graphics (i.e., CATIA of SolidWORKS), Statics, or Dynamics.

The Engineering Fundamentals Department conducts a variety of engineering education research projects, particularly in advancing evidence-based instructional practices. Candidates should be open to participating in and supporting these research projects.

We expect our colleagues to share the department’s commitment to an inclusive, inviting, and collaborative community practicing excellence in both research and instruction. We strongly encourage individuals from populations traditionally underrepresented and underserved in STEM – women, Blacks, Latinx, Native Americans, persons with disabilities, and persons of all gender identities and/or sexual orientation – to apply.

We seek candidates who will be active in the college and collaborate across the disciplines within engineering and the university. The faculty candidate will be joining a diverse and collegial team of faculty in the Engineering Fundamentals Department. We teach innovative engineering courses using evidence-based instruction, as well as conduct research to expand the boundaries of the emerging field of engineering education. The College of Engineering has over 1700 undergraduate students in six ABET accredited engineering degrees. More details on the College of Engineering and out department can be found at http://www.erau.edu/dbcoe/ .

Applications must include a cover letter, CV, a statement of teaching interest and philosophy, a statement of diversity philosophy that includes examples of how they have been/could be supportive of diverse populations, a list of three references with contact information, and unofficial transcripts from all institutions. Official transcripts will only be required upon accepting the position. Each document is to be labeled “LastName_FirstName_ERAUDEF_Cover_Letter.”, “LastName_FirstName_ERAUDEF_CV.”, “LastName_FirstName_ERAUDEF_Teaching.”, and “LastName_FirstName_ERAUDEF_Diversity”. Only complete application packages will be considered.

Review of applications will begin on June 10, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. The target starting date is August 2021. ERAU is an AA/EEO employer. Inquiries about the position can be directed to Dr. Heidi M. Steinhauer, Department Chair, via email at steinhah@erau.edu .
