The Systems Engineering Department at the United States Naval
Academy invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position
at the Assistant Professor level. The department teaches a major that
emphasizes applied automatic control in a laboratory intensive, ABET
accredited curriculum. We seek candidates who can contribute to a
broad field of study, which currently includes robotics, dynamics and
control, applied microcomputers, and signal processing. Of special
interest are qualifications that could expand the program in new
directions such as bioengineering, MEMS, and engineering management.
The Naval Academy is an undergraduate institution dedicated to teaching
excellence. Class sizes are small and laboratories are generously
equipped. In addition to teaching, the successful candidate is expected
to publish scholarly work and play a significant role in advising student
design projects. An earned doctorate in engineering or a related field is
required. Excellent opportunities exist for collaboration with faculty
within the department as well as nearby research organizations.
Filling the position is contingent on availability of funding. Preference
be given to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. The Naval Academy is
an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer, and provides
reasonable accommodation to qualified applicants with disabilities.
Women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply.
