Tenure-Track/Tenured Faculty Position - Rice University, Mechanical
[review of applications is getting underway -- submit your application

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Rice University invites
applications for two tenure-track/tenured positions effective as early as
July 2018. We seek faculty members who will develop a dynamic and innovative
independent research program and will excel in teaching at the graduate and
undergraduate levels while embracing Rice's culture of excellence and
diversity. Excellence and scholarship in teaching and research are the
primary selection criteria for a search in all areas of Mechanical
Engineering, including robotics, solid mechanics, dynamics, fluid mechanics,
heat transfer, and controls. Applicants should have a PhD or ScD in
Mechanical Engineering or a related field. The positions are open to
applicants at the assistant, associate, or full professor level. 

The Department of Mechanical Engineering was ranked 25th by U.S. News and
World Report. It is one of nine academic departments in the George R. Brown
School of Engineering, which generates over $50 million in annual research
expenditures, and has fifteen faculty members conducting research in areas
such as aerospace, robotics, biomedical systems, thermal-fluids, mechanical
design, tribology, and dynamics and controls. In addition to numerous
collaborations across departments and schools within Rice, partnerships with
other institutes include work with NASA to develop the next generation of
space vehicles, and research with Texas Medical Center institutions into
haptic devices for rehabilitation and new orthopedic materials. 

The successful candidates for these positions will benefit from the
resources, support, and multidisciplinary research environment fostered by
Rice University's Richard Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and
Technology (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__cnst.rice.edu_&d=DwICAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=owKXwV99CstCobeonzzFdQ69dFzbK8CbQJVrxAnIpPE&s=7juJYiWTP5i-1u2Z-6HBCT8aqQONkAakGv-czDYVw3c&e=), Ken Kennedy Institute for Information
