The College of Engineering at Michigan Technological University invites applications for multiple faculty positions in all fields of engineering or computing. The positions are expected to be filled at the Assistant Professor level, but senior level individuals with exceptional records will also be considered. We seek faculty who will redefine their discipline by creating and exploiting new digital tools and techniques, and who will transform the university to one where all of our graduates seamlessly apply these emerging technologies in their chosen fields.

A PhD in an engineering discipline or a closely related field is required. The College of Engineering encourages minority and female applicants and is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all people. Applications are to be submitted online at http://www.jobs.mtu.edu/postings/7342. Candidates are asked to identify the department(s) most closely aligned with their background and research interests (see: www.mtu.edu/engineering/). Applicants should provide a statement describing their research experience and future plans and also provide a curriculum vitae, a statement on their teaching interests and philosophy, and the names of at least three professional references (to be contacted only by permission of the applicant). Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Please direct inquiries to the Search Committee Chair ([email protected]). Review of applications will begin immediately.

Each engineering research department at Michigan Tech has different needs regarding research and teaching in computing. A description of how each department envisions successful candidates contributing to their programs can be found at this link: https://www.mtu.edu/engineering/hire/index.html
