Harvey Mudd College invites applications for an open field tenure-track faculty position in our General Engineering program. The Department of Engineering seeks candidates with experience and knowledge in applications of engineering who can excel in teaching a broadly-based undergraduate curriculum focused on design, systems engineering, and engineering science. Candidates working at the interfaces of engineering disciplines who can help students to make connections across fields are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to teaching excellence and professional growth. A Ph.D. or equivalent (terminal) degree in engineering or a closely related field is required. Industrial or other practical experience in the field is valued. The appointment is anticipated to be at the assistant professor level.
Teaching opportunities include the department’s required courses in engineering sciences, participation on teaching teams in the design and systems engineering sequences, supervising sponsored projects in the Engineering Clinic program, and developing courses in the applicant’s area of specialty. Candidates should provide evidence of excellence in teaching and the ability to increase students’ general and multidisciplinary engineering skills.
Harvey Mudd is a highly selective undergraduate liberal arts college emphasizing science, mathematics, and engineering. Many forms of professional engagement are celebrated at the college including consulting and academic publishing in a wide variety of fields. Candidates should discuss how the Harvey Mudd environment would provide opportunities for professional growth in research, consulting, or other forms of scholarship, and how undergraduate students might be engaged in these activities. Candidates must be committed to teaching and mentoring a diverse student population, particularly groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering; candidates from these groups are encouraged to apply.
Applicants should submit: a cover letter, a curriculum vitæ, a teaching statement, a professional growth/research statement, a statement describing experience and commitment to teaching diverse student populations, and the names of at least three references. For full consideration, applications should be received by November 26, 2018, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
