Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering
Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering
Two Tenure Track Faculty Positions
The Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering (MAE) Department of the Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering at Clarkson University invites applications for 2 tenure track positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank (starting date: July 2019 or earlier). A Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering or related area is required. For the first position, applications are sought from individuals whose research interests are in fluid mechanics, aerodynamics or thermal science. The area of interest for the second position is dynamics and controls.
Clarkson’s MAE Department supports approximately 850 undergraduate and graduate students, and offers B.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering, and M.E., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering. Successful candidates will be expected to teach fundamental undergraduate and graduate courses in mechanical/aeronautical engineering, and develop strong externally-funded research programs.
Clarkson University is strategically emphasizing four primary research focus areas: Data Analytics, Healthy World Solutions, Advanced Materials Development, and Emerging Interdisciplinary Research Solutions. These focus areas are supported by seven university wide research centers (CITeR, C3S2, ISE, CARES, CAMP, CfM, CREST). Additional information about Clarkson’s research and its centers can be found at https://www.clarkson.edu/research and the Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Department at https://www.clarkson.edu/academics/engineering/mechanical-aeronautical-engineering
Applicants should articulate a clear and substantiated vision of how their background can lead to sustainable accomplishments that produce excellence in both interdisciplinary research within the identified focus areas and research centers, and classroom instruction. Each applicant should submit a CV, a research statement, a teaching statement, and contact information for at least three professional references. Applications should be submitted at the following position-specific links:
