Faculty Position in Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering (
) at the University of Delaware (UD) invites nominations and applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in the area of thermal-fluid sciences and engineering. We seek applicants with research interest in the areas of energy systems, multiphysics fluid transport in natural systems, biofluids, micro- and nanofluids, and advanced material processing and manufacturing.
The department consists of 22 full-time faculty members actively engaged in the core research areas of biomechanics, clean energy and environment, composite and advanced materials, nanotechnology, and robotics and controls; annual research expenditures are $6.3M. The faculty members perform cross-disciplinary research and are recognized internationally for the impact of their work. The department hosts the Center for Fuel Cell Research and the Center for Biomedical Engineering Research, and has strong ties to several strategic campus-wide institutions such as the Center for Composite Materials, the Center for Carbon-free Power Integration, the Delaware Biotechnology Institute, the Delaware Environmental Institute, the Delaware Rehabilitation Institute, the Institute for Energy Conversion, and the UD Energy Institute. The department enrolls over 500 undergraduate and 100 graduate students. The undergraduate program is in high demand and places a strong emphasis on research and real-world design. The upcoming 194,000-square-foot Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory will dramatically expand the space available for interdisciplinary research and education. The recently acquired 272-acre STAR (Science, Technology and Advanced Research) campus adds exciting opportunities for research, academic, and commercial development.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, or closely related field. A successful candidate will have demonstrated excellence in innovative research and show the potential for high-quality teaching and mentoring in the area of thermal-fluids.
Applicants should apply online and provide a curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests and achievements, and a list of at least four references all as one pdf document.
Full consideration is guaranteed for
applications received before January 1, 2013,
but the search will continue until the position is filled.
