Job description

Location: South Bend
Deadline: Nov 1, 2021 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

Description:The Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a non-tenure-track teaching faculty position focused on experiential learning. The holder of this position will teach required undergraduate courses, primarily design and laboratory courses, with the potential for some core engineering science and/or elective courses as well. These courses serve both the aerospace and mechanical engineering undergraduate programs. All faculty in the Department contribute to advising undergraduate students, and candidates with the additional potential to advise student clubs that support experiential learning are particularly encouraged to apply. The Department seeks to attract, develop, and retain excellent faculty members with strong records and future promise. Among the Department’s four current teaching faculty are three associate teaching professors and one endowed teaching professor whose teaching experience within the Department spans 4 to 15+ years. The Department provides a clear path to promotion for teaching faculty, as well as support for professional development.

The search is aimed at the assistant teaching professor level, but candidates at all levels who have strong records and promise will be considered. All applicants must have an earned doctorate or Masters degree in an appropriate discipline and the expertise to teach the required aerospace and mechanical engineering courses described above. Successful candidates will have demonstrated the potential to achieve excellence in undergraduate education, undergraduate advising, and service within the university. The Department is especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the Universitys academic community through their teaching and service.
