ASSISTANT PROFESSOR in MECHANICAL ENGINEERING (DESIGN FOCUS)

The Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (HSEAS) seeks 
applicants for a faculty position as a tenure track assistant professor 
in mechanical engineering. The ideal candidate will have a strong 
interest and background in teaching design, as well as outstanding 
research capabilities. Areas of interest include mechanics and materials 
(particularly MEMS and NEMS), fluids, mechatronics, robotics, and 
biomechanics.

Successful candidates will work with HSEAS faculty to develop an 
innovative design curriculum for our ABET-accredited engineering degree 
program. The position requires a Ph.D. in engineering or a closely 
related discipline, the ability to develop a leading research program, 
and enthusiasm for teaching both graduate and undergraduate courses.

Harvard University is committed to increasing its investment in 
engineering, as exemplified by the recent reorganization of the 
engineering program into the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. 
Construction of new facilities and a substantial increase in faculty 
size are now in progress. HSEAS benefits from outstanding undergraduate 
and graduate students and a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative 
research environment without departmental boundaries. Information about 
HSEAS can be found at www.seas.harvard.edu

Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, a statement of teaching 
interests emphasizing design education, statement of research plans, 
copies of three publications, and names and contact information for at 
least three references. These documents should be submitted as pdf 
attachments to: design-search at seas.harvard.edu

Applications will be reviewed as they are received. For full 
consideration, applications should be received by January 31, 2008. 
Harvard University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer 
and applications from women and underrepresented minorities are strongly 
encouraged.
