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.
