With nearly 900 undergraduate students, the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Colorado State University is the largest such program in the Rocky Mountain region. It is the fourth largest program at Colorado State, and the fastest growing of the top ten programs at CSU. In support of this growth the department invites applications for a new non-tenure track full-time faculty Instructor in the broad area of the thermal-fluid sciences. This position supports the educational mission of the Department and its commitment to provide high-quality educational opportunities in the engineering sciences, engineering experimentation and engineering design. The Instructor will join a collegial group of committed faculty, will teach a minimum of three academic courses per semester in the thermal-fluids area (with opportunities for other courses such as our year-long senior design capstone experience depending on the abilities of the Instructor), and will provide guidance and leadership for the undergraduate thermal-fluid science laboratory.
Candidates must have (1) an earned PhD in mechanical engineering with a dissertation in the thermal-fluids area, (2) current licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE), (3) a minimum of ten years of industry experience in the thermal-fluids area, and (4) experience teaching one or more thermal-fluids courses in a mechanical engineering undergraduate Baccalaureate program. Experience in operation, maintenance and design of thermal-fluid systems is strongly desirable. Additionally, demonstrable commitment to high-quality undergraduate engineering education in the classroom and laboratory is strongly desirable. The position reports to the Head of the department.
Application Deadline: The full consideration deadline to apply is Monday April 22, 2013 at 5:00pm, however applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
