Lecturer or Assistant Professor - 12 Mo. in Marine Engineering & Engine Room Simulation Coordinator

About SUNY Maritime College:
SUNY Maritime College located on a 55-acre scenic waterfront property on the outskirts of New York City on the Throggs Neck peninsula where the East River meets Long Island Sound. The campus blends the best of two worlds: a comfortable college-town feel with the greatest city in the world. An impressive view of the sound extends toward the North Atlantic, yet only a few miles away are Yankee Stadium and midtown Manhattan. SUNY Maritime offers an array of employment opportunities stemming from entry level to professional positions which encourage growth and development among its employees.

Job Description:
The State University of New York Maritime College, America's oldest maritime academy, offers five ABET-accredited Bachelor of Engineering programs. The Engineering Department is seeking to fill the position of instructional faculty in Marine Engineering and Engine Room Simulation Coordinator.

The Simulation Coordinator duties will focus on the continued development, operation and maintenance of the TRANSAS Engine Room Simulator (ERS) located within the Engineering Department. The ERS is used as an instructional tool for cadets in the USCG Engine License program. The ERS Coordinator will be intimately involved in developing a range of new scenarios to further this activity, in cooperation with other Engine license instructors in the department. The position is anticipated to be divided equally between instructional and ERS Coordinator duties, although the partition of duties may be subject to change. Summer work on the ERS is expected; in addition, the candidate will be required to participate in Summer Sea Term aboard the TSES Empire State VI one summer out of every three years during their employment.
