Excellent written and oral communication skills. Industrial experience is desirable, but not required.
Application should include a cover letter, CV, teaching statement, 3 references. A sample syllabus is optional but recommended.

Additional Information:
The Department has recently developed and gained approval for an innovative curriculum model that will be instituted starting in Fall, 2014, and the successful candidate will be an integral part of that implementation. As part of this initiative, a newly renovated, $1M teaching lab will be completed in the Summer of 2014 to allow better integration of classroom teaching and hands-on lab experiences.
