The Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University seek
applicants for tenure track/tenured faculty positions in the areas of
micro- and nano-scale systems and engineering that will grow our efforts in
the important thrust areas of Energy, Health, Security, and Sustainability.
Areas of application interest include but are not limited to MEMS/NEMS for
thermal management, energy harvesting, fluidic transport, measurements and
diagnostics, micro/nano surface engineering and manufacturing,
micro-robotics, bioinspired soft robotics, and sensing.

We seek applicants who will contribute to our programs and will leverage
investments by the University in promoting interdisciplinary teaching and
research. These investments include, among others, the Biodesign Institute (
http://biodesign.asu.edu), the Security and Defense Systems Initiative (
http://sdsi.asu.edu), Lightworks (http://asulightworks.com) and the Global
Institute of Sustainability (http://sustainability.asu.edu).

Required qualifications include an earned Ph.D., or equivalent, in
Mechanical Engineering or related field, demonstrated evidence of research
capability and commitment to teaching excellence as appropriate to the
candidate's rank. Desired qualifications include a commitment to
trans-disciplinary teaming.

Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and
externally funded research program, develop and teach graduate and
undergraduate courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate
students, and undertake service activities.

Appointments will be at the assistant, associate or full professor rank
commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments, beginning
August 2013. Although the faculty appointment may be anywhere in the Fulton
Schools of Engineering, the Mechanical Engineering program is currently
among the most involved in micro- and nano-scale systems and engineering.

Review of applications will begin December 1, 2012; if not filled, reviews
will occur on the 1st and 15th of the month thereafter until the search is
closed. To apply, please submit as a single PDF file a current CV,
statements describing research and teaching interests and contact
information for three references to micronano.faculty at asu.edu.

For further information or questions about this position please contact the
search committee chair Professor Ron Adrian at rjadrian at asu.edu.

Arizona State is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women
and minorities are encouraged to apply. ASU’s complete non-discrimination
statement can be found at: www.asu.edu/titleIX
