WORCESTER POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE

Multiple Faculty Positions in Mechanical,
Materials Science, and Aerospace Engineering

The Mechanical Engineering Department at the Worcester Polytechnic 
Institute invites applications for multiple faculty positions in 
Mechanical, Materials Science, and Aerospace Engineering at the 
Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels. Candidates are expected 
to develop and maintain active research, teaching, and project 
activities that complement and expand the programs within the department 
or in related interdisciplinary areas such as robotics and automation, 
MEMS and nano-scale applications, energy systems, advanced computational 
modeling, biomedical systems, and materials processing. These searches 
will remain open until the positions are filled.

Mechanical Engineering Design: Primary areas of interest include 
computer-aided design, machine design, kinematics, design optimization, 
or computer-aided engineering. Candidates with experience in the 
practice of engineering design are encouraged to apply.

Aerospace Engineering: Primary areas of interest include: (1) aircraft 
and/or spacecraft dynamics and controls; flight mechanics; guidance, 
navigation and communication; autonomous aerospace systems. (2) aircraft 
and/or spacecraft structures; aerospace structural dynamics; adaptive 
aerospace structures or other closely related areas.

Materials Science and Engineering: Areas of interest span all classes of 
materials and include materials processing, performance and reliability, 
nanostructured materials, computational materials engineering, and 
materials for energy systems and environmental sustainability.

WPI, founded in 1865 and located one hour west of Boston, is one of the 
nation’s oldest technological universities. WPI is a highly selective 
private university with an undergraduate student body of over 3,600 and 
1,400 full-time and part-time graduate students enrolled in more than 50 
Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Ph.D programs. Its innovative project-enriched 
curriculum engages students and faculty in real-world problem solving, 
often at one of WPI’s global project centers. U.S. News and World Report 
consistently ranks WPI among the top national universities. Recently 
Unigo’s “Colleges for 21st Century Einsteins,” listed WPI among the top 
10 schools for science and technology as rated by students.

Requirements:
Candidates are expected to develop and maintain active research, 
teaching, and project activities that complement and expand the programs 
within the department or in related interdisciplinary areas such as 
robotics and automation, MEMS and nano-scale applications, energy 
systems, advanced computational modeling, biomedical systems, and 
materials processing. These searches will remain open until the 
positions are filled.

Applications should be sent to me-recruit at wpi.edu

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, statement of teaching 
and research interests, and a list of five professional references.

To enrich education through diversity, WPI is an affirmative action, 
equal opportunity employer.
