Grand Valley State University-Faculty Tenure-Track

GRAND VALLEY STATE UNIVERSITY - SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
The School of Engineering within Grand Valley State University’s Seymour and Esther Padnos College of Engineering and Computing invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant/associate professor level. The position is within the product design and manufacturing engineering program covering the general areas of materials and processes.
This position will support the continued growth of GVSU’s product design and manufacturing engineering program, which has doubled in size in the past five years. The product design and manufacturing engineering program leads to ABET-accredited bachelor of science in engineering (B.S.E.) and master of science in engineering (M.S.E.) degrees. The B.S.E. program includes mandatory co-op educational experiences and an extensive experiential learning component. The M.S.E. program emphasizes professional practice as well as applied research. Supported by the local industry, these programs yield career-ready and graduate-school-ready engineering graduates.
Applicants must have a doctorate in manufacturing engineering, materials science, mechanical engineering, or a closely related field. Preference will be given to candidates with teaching experience, particularly in the areas of materials science, processes, and industrial and/or project-based experience in these areas.
This position involves teaching and industrial experience, as well as experience related to recruiting and supervising industrial-grade projects. All candidates should possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and be committed to the highest quality of laboratory and project-based teaching, along with scholarly and professional development. The ability to teach broadly in one’s field and a passion for continuous improvement of the curriculum are desired. An ability to participate in and capitalize upon existing collaborations with industrial partners and a history of external funding are highly valued.
The GVSU B.S.E. programs consist of project-intensive ABET-accredited majors in computer, electrical, interdisciplinary, mechanical, and product design and manufacturing engineering, with mandatory co-op educational experiences. Engineering enrollment, currently over 1,200 students, has experienced consistent growth that is expected to continue. Industrial-grade laboratories, machine shops, and equipment in more than 80,000 square feet of state-of-the art facilities in the Kennedy Hall of Engineering and the Keller Engineering Laboratories support all of our engineering programs.
Application review will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. The start date for this position is fall 2018.
Detailed information and the online application process are available at jobs.gvsu.edu. Include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and at least three references listed by name, address, phone number, and e-mail address.
Should you have questions or need other assistance, please call human resources at 616-331-2215. Grand Valley State University is an affirmative action, equal opportunity institution.
