Louisiana State University (LSU) invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) of the College of Engineering.
Appointment will be made at the Assistant Professor level in Mechanical Engineering, though applicants with exceptional qualifications may be considered at other ranks. Research expectations include the ability to work independently, and to pursue interdisciplinary collaborations, both within and outside LSU, sustain an innovative, nationally recognized and externally funded research program, and growing relationships with industry. Teaching expectations include a commitment to effective instruction and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and supervision of student research.
Successful applicants will have unique opportunities at LSU through the National Center for Advanced Manufacturing (NCAM), the NSF-funded Consortium for Innovation in Manufacturing and Materials (CIMM), and the Center for Computation and Technology (CCT).
50% Carry out undergraduate and graduate teaching and provide associated service.
50% Research in mechanical engineering areas, especially in the general area of modern computational mechanics as related to manufacturing, resulting in scholarship published in archival journals and research grant/contract solicitation to support it, along with associated service in support of the research mission and reputation of the unit.
Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline, with a Ph.D. in Engineering or related scientific field (ABD candidates will be considered so long as degree requirements are met prior to August, 2020); at least four years of experience, including graduate study; experience in any area of mechanical engineering, and especially in the general area of Modern Computational Mechanics.
Applicants with expertise and background in modern Computational Mechanics as related to manufacturing and materials fundamentals and applications are encouraged to apply. An emphasis on multi-scale modeling and simulation relevant to manufacturing and materials areas, especially in the context of the aerospace, energy or automotive sectors, is highly desirable, as is familiarity with Integrated Computational Materials Engineering methods.
Please attach the following as one file to your online application: cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching philosophy statement, research plan statement and three professional references including name, title, phone number and e-mail address.
A copy of your transcript(s) may be attached to your application (if available). However, original transcripts are required prior to hire.
An offer of employment is contingent on a satisfactory pre-employment background check.
The review of applications will begin on December 15, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. The expected start date for this position is August 2020. Salary will be competitive based on qualifications.
