The high-achieving Binghamton student body also represents a great diversity of life experiences, from first-generation college-goers to international students. Beyond their talent, these classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration and community service.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the State University of New York at Binghamton invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in solid mechanics at the assistant professor level beginning Fall 2020. Candidates must have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field.
Candidates must have a demonstrated track record in the area of solid mechanics and will be expected to develop a research program capable of securing competitive external research funding. The department is interested in a candidate who conducts research in the broad area of computational and/or experimental solid mechanics or mechanics of structures, including soft materials, metamaterials and biomechanics. The candidate's research should complement existing department research areas, which are sensors, acoustics and vibrations, MEMS, robotics, additive manufacturing, energy control systems, electronic packaging, computational fluid mechanics, microfluidics, nanomaterials, and nanotechnology. Candidates are also encouraged to familiarize themselves with University-wide smart-energy and biomedical research thrusts (http://www.binghamton.edu/tae/).
Candidates must also have a potential for quality teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in mechanical engineering. The candidate will be expected to address teaching needs in the areas of solid mechanics and mechanical engineering design, as well as, supervise undergraduate capstone design projects and Master's-level industrial projects.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering has 20 faculty members, with undergraduate and graduate enrollments of approximately 400 and 110 students, respectively. The Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Watson School are dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. Potential applicants who share this goal, especially underrepresented minorities, women and persons with disabilities, are strongly encouraged to apply.
