The Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science at Hofstra University invites applications for an anticipated tenure-track opening at the assistant/associate professor level in engineering management and industrial engineering. The start date for this position is September 1, 2019, subject to financial availability.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering, or another closely related field, with experience in engineering management.

Demonstrated skill in designing engineering educational assessment programs is a plus.

The engineering programs at Hofstra are experiencing rapid growth, and the successful applicant will contribute to the further development of a top-tier engineering educational enterprise.  Hence, candidates must be dynamic communicators with a strong commitment to teaching, be able to initiate sustained research involving students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and show initiative in seeking external funding for research projects, especially those related to industrial management.

The School of Engineering and Applied Science is committed to hiring faculty dedicated to the education of engineers who are innovative and creative problem solvers. More information about Hofstra University's Department of Engineering may be found at: www.hofstra.edu/engineering

Interested applicants should send a curriculum vitae, including a statement of teaching and research interests, sample publications, and contact information for three or more academic references to Dr. Richard Puerzer, Search Committee Chairperson at the email address: [email protected]
