Harvey Mudd College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Materials Engineering. As a premier undergraduate general engineering program, the Department of Engineering seeks candidates with experience and knowledge in applications of materials science who can support a broadly based curriculum focused on design, systems engineering, and engineering science. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in materials engineering or a related field
, and a demonstrated commitment to teaching excellence. Industrial or other practical experience in the field is valued but not required. The anticipated appointment is at the assistant professor level.
Teaching duties include the department’s required course in materials engineering, participation on teaching teams in the design or systems engineering sequences, supervising sponsored projects in the Engineering Clinic program, and developing courses in the applicant’s area of specialty. Candidates should provide evidence of excellence in teaching and an interest in engaging with undergraduate students in research, consulting, or other forms of professional development. Candidates must be committed to teaching and mentoring a diverse student population, particularly groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering; candidates from these groups are encouraged to apply. All candidates are encouraged to explicitly describe the nature of their commitment and experience with underrepresented groups in the cover letter.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, statements of teaching philosophy and research and/or other professional development interests, and names of at least three references to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/3399. The search committee will begin reviewing applications on November 15, 2013. For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
