Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Faculty Position

Virginia Commonwealth University
Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering

 

The Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Department at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position open to all ranks (assistant, associate, and full professor) in support of our mechanical and nuclear engineering undergraduate and graduate programs.

 

Position: Applications are being sought for a tenure-track faculty position open to all ranks (assistant, associate, and full professor). The Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering offers an ABET accredited BS in Mechanical Engineering with a separately ABET accredited Major Concentration in Nuclear Engineering, and MS and PhD degrees in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering. The Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering currently has approximately 550 undergraduate students, 100 graduate students and 25 full-time faculty with research areas that largely focus on functional materials and surfaces, nuclear engineering and energy, and medical devices.

 

Virginia Commonwealth University, one of the nation's top urban research universities, is located on two campuses in the thriving city of Richmond. VCU is proud to have a diverse student population that includes traditionally underrepresented minorities and a higher than average female student population. The School of Engineering, which enrolled its first class of students in 1996, has outstanding state-of-the-art instructional and research facilities and offers MS and PhD degrees, as well as ABET accredited undergraduate programs in Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical & Life Science Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Mechanical & Nuclear Engineering.

 

Qualifications: Applicants should possess a PhD in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related discipline. While candidates with experience in all areas of mechanical engineering will be considered, preference may be given to applicants with experience and research interests in industrial automation and control, robotics, mechatronics, mechanical/machine design or advanced manufacturing. The School of Engineering at VCU supports a diverse faculty, staff, and student environment. The candidate will demonstrate experience that shows their commitment to fostering such an environment.

 

Candidates should demonstrate excellent oral and written communication skills and have an outstanding publication record. Junior candidates will be required to have an established research agenda and a clear potential for external funding, as well as a potential for scholarship to complement and expand existing expertise in the department. Candidates for a more senior rank will be required to have a well-developed scholarly/research portfolio with evidence of multi-disciplinary applications and external funding to complement and expand existing expertise in the department. Particularly attractive is experience that demonstrates an ability to initiate interdisciplinary research and educational synergies among diverse areas. Collaborations are encouraged with other VCU units such as the Medical Campus, the Schools of Business and the Arts, and the College of Humanities and Sciences.

Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.
The position is expected to start no later than August 16, 2018.
