Tenure track positions in systems engineering

In response to growing Navy demands for systems engineering education and research, the Naval Postgraduate School is expanding its systems engineering faculty. We are searching for faculty to fill two tenure track positions beginning in the fall of 2014.

The Department of Systems Engineering is ranked as the 20th graduate program in the nation by USNWR in the industrial, manufacturing, and systems engineering category. With over 500 graduate students, and 25 PhD students, it has large and vibrant programs, both residential and distributed learning. There are ABET accredited programs in systems engineering (both residential and DL), as well as programs in systems engineering management, systems engineering analysis, and engineering systems.
We require a terminal degree in engineering, with preference to systems engineering or a closely aligned field. We seek faculty with expertise in one or more of the following sub-disciplines/domains: systems engineering methodology, systems integration, and system of systems engineering. Preference will be given to candidates who can demonstrate one or more of the following attributes: experience as a naval systems engineer, experience with combat systems engineering, and experience within the Defense Acquisition environment.

Research threads of interest include systems integration of parallel developed combat systems and platforms, methods for effective systems of systems engineering, unmanned systems of systems, and modeling and analysis of highly complex engineered systems.

Excellent teaching references are required. For senior positions, a solid journal publication record and a track record in obtaining competitive research funding are also required. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a significant research program and teach subjects in related areas.

Depending on qualifications, successful candidates may be appointed at the assistant, associate, or full professor rank.

For all positions, salary is competitive and depends upon qualifications.

To apply, send a cover letter and curriculum vita to Chair of the Faculty Hiring Committee, Department of Systems Engineering, Naval Postgraduate School, 1 University Drive, Monterey, CA, 93940. Email applications may be sent care of SEhire at nps.edu<mailto:SEhire at nps.edu>. Candidates advancing beyond screening will be asked to provide three letters of reference, no more than three publications, and an official transcript of their highest degree claimed. Initial consideration of applications will begin 29 August 2014.
The NPS is an equal opportunity / affirmative action employer. Eligibility for a security clearance, and hence, U.S. Citizenship are required.
