Position Summary
The Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education of Princeton University seeks applications for the William R. Kenan, Jr. Visiting Professorship for Distinguished Teaching for Academic Years 2016-2017 and 2017-2018. This professorship continues the admirable tradition of previous holders who have set standards for exceptional scholarship and distinguished teaching which have become the hallmarks of the Kenan Trust Visiting Professorship.

The visitor will teach two undergraduate courses, possibly collaborating with a regular faculty member. The visitor will undertake some activities that contribute to the life of the department or the University by focusing on the art and craft of teaching well. Possible projects include a seminar for faculty and graduate students that aims at improving teaching at Princeton, particularly through the use of new technologies, workshops for faculty and graduate students, demonstration lectures, lunch discussions, or classroom visits.

For full consideration, applications should be received by December 7, 2015. The applicant should indicate in his/her application the preferred academic year for their visit. Applications should include the candidate's c.v. and a statement of how the candidate proposes to spend the visiting year.

Names and contact information for three reference letters that comment on the nominee's qualifications and experiences relevant to the proposed activities. Letters will be required for top candidates.  

Essential Qualifications
Candidates will be evaluated according to their teaching ability and scholarship, and their track records of new course innovations and innovative teaching methods that can bring new dimensions to what the members of the Princeton School of Engineering and Applied Science faculty are already doing in their classrooms.
Applicants are expected to hold a Ph.D. in engineering or a related field.
