Mount Vernon Nazarene University has an increasingly diverse and global student body of over 2,100 undergraduate and graduate students and provides the context for a transformational experience through excellent academics, service opportunities, caring relationships, and a nurturing spiritual and social environment. Faculty, staff, and students are challenged to achieve their highest potential, to become increasingly Christ-like and to make a difference in their world through lifelong service.

The University is seeking a full-time (nine-month) Electrical Engineering Faculty Member, beginning in the Fall semester of 2017. Rank is open. Compensation is competitive among the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.

Responsibilities may include:

  • Teaching a broad range of undergraduate engineering courses required for the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree program. Teaching assignments are expected to be in courses related to general engineering with a concentration in electrical engineering. Teaching of other related courses may be required;
  • Advising of students majoring in Engineering and ensuring that their academic progress meets requirements set by the institution, working with students to encourage professional development, and working with upper level students on their senior capstone design projects;
  • Supporting departmental efforts for continued improvement of programs;
  • Serving the University through committee participation.



Interview preference will be given to candidates who possess the following:

  • An Evangelical Christian confession of faith and experience is required (Statement of Faith required at application). Membership in the Church of the Nazarene preferred;
  • Graduate degree in Electrical Engineering or a closely related field is required. An earned Ph.D. in Engineering is preferred.
  • PE certification and industry experience are particularly desirable.
  • Broad interest in engineering disciplines at the undergraduate level and the ability to teach courses related to engineering design, computation and modeling, electrical circuits, digital and analog electronics, and ability to mentor students in capstone design projects.
  • Strong presentation skills, and commitment to quality classroom instruction and student learning;
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills, and proven ability to work collaboratively with others.

In a continuing effort to enrich its academic environment and provide equal educational and employment opportunities, the university actively encourages applications from members of all ethnic groups underrepresented in higher education. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled; however, early application is strongly advised. Interested candidates should send an application letter, curriculum vita, unofficial college transcripts, evidence of teaching competence, names and contact information for three references, a one- to two- page statement of educational philosophy, and a one- to two-page statement of faith.
