The Department is interested in candidates in all areas that enhance our college strengths and growth. Of particular interest are applicants with a background in CAD/manufacturing, materials science, engineering education, and engineering mechanics.
The Department seeks candidates with strong interests in engineering education, a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning, an ability to perform applied research, as well as dedication to service and collegiality. Successful candidates will be expected to teach undergraduate courses, to develop laboratory experiments, to collaborate with students on independent research and to supervise student projects. The College of Engineering is focused on undergraduate teaching excellence and has a strong emphasis on design and project-based learning. The faculty of the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University College of Engineering are housed in a modern academic complex, which is adjacent to wind tunnel and propulsion laboratories and facilities.
The College of Engineering faculty also make extensive use of the Aerospace Experimentation and Fabrication (AXFAB) laboratory complex, which features a modern machine shop, a space system laboratory, structures and material laboratories. A 52,000 square foot STEM Building opened in August 2017 featuring state-of-the-art engineering and science laboratories, as well as the Raisbeck Engineering Design Studio, and the Jim & Linda Lee Planetarium, for both student and faculty use.
