The candidate must hold an earned doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering or a closely related field.
NON-TENURE-TRACK FACULTY POSITION
The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Rutgers University invites applications and nominations for a full-time, non-tenure-track engineering faculty position at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor beginning Spring 2017. The position is an academic year appointment (nine-month) with the opportunity for summer compensation depending on course offerings. The appointment will be for a period of one to three years, and renewable subject to enrollment needs, availability of funding and performance.
Duties are primarily teaching two to three Mechanical and Aerospace courses per semester. Other duties may include coordinating and maintaining course related laboratory equipment, mentoring undergraduate students, linking with local K-12 schools for student recruitment, interacting with local industry and soliciting for industry supported design projects, advising undergraduate students in professional societies chapters, serving on internal committees, sharing administration responsibilities as well as other duties assigned by the Department Chairperson.
The candidate should demonstrate potential for and commitment to teaching of a wide variety of undergraduate mechanical and aerospace engineering courses, especially in the field of Mechatronics, Control, Design, Thermal, Fluid and/or Solid Systems as well as associated laboratory courses, senior electives and senior projects. The candidate must hold an earned doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering or a closely related field. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are a prerequisite. Commitment to enhancing the diversity of the Department’s faculty and students is also expected.
