The USNA Systems Engineering Department (http://www.usna.edu/WSE/)
invites applications for multiple tenure track faculty positions.
Appointments at all ranks will be considered, but the preference is
for junior faculty at the rank of Assistant Professor.  This position
may begin as early as the fall of 2015.  A Ph.D. in electrical,
mechanical, or closely related engineering field is required.

The Systems Engineering major seeks candidates that can contribute to
a broad field of study including dynamics and control, mechatronics,
robotics, and embedded computers. The successful candidate is expected
to teach and, eventually, develop course material in one or more of
these areas, to advise student projects, and to maintain a research
program and a technical publication record. Additional technical
expertise and/or previous technical research in areas of robotics,
cyber-physical systems, or human machine interface, is highly
desirable. The Systems Engineering curriculum (accredited by ABET) is
laboratory intensive and emphasizes design for autonomy.  Class sizes
are small and laboratories are state-of-the-art.

Applications should consist of a cover letter and CV accompanied by
teaching and research statements, and sent to Search Committee, c/o
Prof.  Joel Esposito, esposito at usna.edu .  We will begin reviewing
applications on December 1st 2014 and continue until the position is
filled.
