Assistant Professor in the Field of

Engineering Design

in the

Department of Mechanical Engineering



JOB DESCRIPTION: The Department of Mechanical Engineering seeks an
innovative individual for a tenure-track faculty position in engineering
design.  Appointment will be at the assistant professor level. In an
exceptional case, particularly if the candidate has demonstrated
ground-breaking vision, a senior faculty appointment may be possible.



Applicants should have a strong foundation in engineering design and product
development.  Applicants should have a broad understanding of the complete
design process, from conceptual through detailed design.  Application areas
include, but are not limited to, consumer, medical, transportation and
industrial products.  Candidates will be expected to develop new
independent, internationally recognized research and educational directions
in engineering design.  Experience working with industry is desirable.
 Candidates
are expected to teach both lecture and project-based classes in design at
the undergraduate and graduate level.



QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates must have an earned Ph.D. in mechanical
engineering or a related discipline by the time of their appointment.
Candidates should have a proven track record of design.  Candidates will be
expected to develop a strong research program in design and have a strong
record of, or show the promise for, outstanding teaching.

ENTPs are frequently described as  enthusiastic, outgoing, innovative, and
resourceful. ENTPs are motivated by a desire to understand the world they
live in, and improve it. When the ENTP is used correctly on a team, they
offer an incredible depth of understanding and a high degree of flexibility
and problem solving ability.  The ENTP regards a comment like "it can't be
done" as a personal challenge, and will spare no expense to discover a
solution once properly motivated.
