The College of Engineering at Wichita State University (WSU) is pleased to announce a search for a tenure-track faculty position in the Industrial, Systems, and Manufacturing Engineering Department in any of the areas of advanced manufacturing, including additive manufacturing, robotics and automation systems, non-traditional processes, metrology and precision engineering. This position represents the growth and commitment to increasing the depth and diversity of our already strong faculty. Wichita State University recognizes that innovation is cultivated by inclusion and seeks to foster an environment of diversity in culture, thought and experience.


We are looking for candidates who embrace the excitement of creating new knowledge, and who are eager to participate in our experiential learning environment.

Why Wichita?

WSU, located in the Air Capital, has a proud history. The department's undergraduate and graduate (MS & PhD) programs are strong and play an important role in the city, region, and nation. Enrollment, along with academic and research capabilities, have grown steadily. The National Science Foundation recently ranked WSU fifth among all U.S. universities in aerospace research and development expenditures. Furthermore, the department and National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) are home to an outstanding collection of wind/water tunnel, aircraft icing, composites, structural testing, fatigue/fracture, flight mechanics, and computational laboratories.


WSU’s campus is an attractively landscaped architectural showplace with more than 16,000 students. Wichita, a thriving community of roughly 400,000 people, is home to aerospace leaders Textron Aviation (Cessna and Beechcraft), Bombardier Learjet, Airbus, and Spirit AeroSystems. The WSU Innovation Campus brings industry, students, and faculty together to collaborate in new buildings and laboratories.


WSU is committed to diversity and inclusion. A varied faculty, staff, and student composition leads to enhanced university growth, quality, and innovation. WSU is family-friendly. Available to all faculty are such things as – educational benefits for spouses and dependents, same-sex spouse benefits, and family leave. Very important for new faculty, there are also provisions to pause tenure review if they become a parent.
