Mechanical Engineering Tenure-Track Faculty Positions
Carnegie Mellon University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering invites applications and nominations for multiple tenure-track faculty positions. Initial appointments are anticipated to be made at the rank of Assistant Professor, but appointments at the ranks of Associate Professor or full Professor may be available for candidates having commensurate experience.
The search committee will consider faculty candidates having interest and expertise across a variety of research areas related to mechanical engineering. An earned doctorate in mechanical engineering or a closely aligned field is required. Candidates are expected to demonstrate the ability to conduct research at the highest level, and to have a record of, or the promise for, outstanding teaching and supervision of students.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, contact information for at least three professional references, and a brief statement of no more than three pages that describes research and educational interests online at http://mechecarnegie.catsone.com/careers/. Applications should be submitted in either .zip format or in a single .pdf document. Paper applications will not be accepted.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received until positions are filled. Women and members of traditionally underrepresented minority groups are particularly encouraged to apply. Carnegie Mellon University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
Mechanical Engineering Teaching-Track Faculty Position (Non-Tenure Track)
Carnegie Mellon University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) invites applications for an open Assistant Teaching professor (non-tenure track) position in the area of Mechanical Engineering, with a focus on teaching students pursuing undergraduate and masters level degrees. Exceptionally well-qualified applicants will also be considered at the Associate Teaching professor (non-tenure track) level. The ME Department at Carnegie Mellon offers a uniquely flexible, yet challenging undergraduate program leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering. The Department also offers a flexible Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering and a unique professional degree in Product Innovation (Master of Product Development).
The ME faculty consists of approximately 30 (total) faculty. The Department hosts about 350 undergraduate students (total) and about 310 graduate students (total).
We seek an enthusiastic and dynamic teaching professor to teach a broad range of courses in the area of design. The emphasis is on design methods and practice, including product development and innovation. In addition to required courses in the undergraduate and Master of Product Development programs, it is expected that the new faculty member will offer a number of elective courses in the area of design and innovation. The expected teaching responsibility for this position is the equivalent of six full courses per year (three each semester). It is expected that the new faculty member will teach effectively at both the undergraduate and graduate levels within the Department, help to advise students (a requirement of all faculty members), and serve on department, college and university committees, among other activities as required. Applicants are required to hold a doctorate in mechanical engineering or related field. Applications from members of groups traditionally underrepresented on engineering faculties are encouraged.
Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled.
Applicants should submit a resume, statement of teaching interests, list of courses they could teach effectively, and a list of at least three references. Applications should be submitted in either .zip format or in a single .pdf document. Paper applications will not be accepted. Applications should be submitted to: http://mechecarnegie.catsone.com/careers/
