Assistant Professor (Tenure Track), of Mechanical Engineering in the Physics and Astronomy department beginning in August of the 2021-2022 academic year. 

Our new colleague will join a historically strong Physics and Astronomy department as we launch an exciting new Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) program in Fall 2021. The new program builds upon a well established Engineering Physics program and will embody the liberal arts in its focus on communication skills, social issues, foundational science, and conceptual thinking.

The three tracks in the BSE program will be mechanical, civil, and environmental & sustainability engineering. This position, the first of three planned hires, will be in the mechanical engineering track. It will require the ability to teach mechanical engineering, physics, and lab courses, and potentially other courses that contribute to the general education curriculum. In addition, there is an expectation of developing a research program appropriate for undergraduate involvement, participating in service to the department and Augustana College community, taking a role in helping to develop new courses, and fostering a diverse and inclusive program.

A PhD in Mechanical Engineering or similar field is required at or near the time of appointment.
