Open Faculty Positions in Mechanical Engineering at Boston University

Harold S. Park's picture

The Department of Mechanical Engineering invites outstanding applicants in all areas of
Mechanical Engineering for tenure-track positions at the level of Assistant Professor beginning
Fall 2014. The Department of Mechanical Engineering is multi-disciplinary with strong research
programs in Biomechanics, Robotics and Control, MEMs and Nanotechnology, Thermo-fluid
Sciences and Energy, Bioacoustics, and Materials. The department is further strengthened by its
affiliation with the Photonics Center, the Division of Materials Science and Engineering, The
Division of Systems Engineering, and the Fraunhofer USA Center for Manufacturing Innovation.
Both the Department and College are implementing ambitious ten-year plans, in line with Boston
University’s commitment as a top-tier research university engaged in substantial growth in the
coming years.

Interested candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in a relevant field of engineering or applied
science, and should have a demonstrated ability to sustain a funded research program. The
applicant should be able to contribute to the graduate and undergraduate programs in Mechanical
Engineering. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.

The ME department has 43 primary faculty members (35 tenured or on the tenure-track), many of
whom hold secondary appointments in other Departments and Divisions within the College.
Undergraduate and graduate enrollments are approximately 500 and 150 respectively. ME
faculty also advise almost 100 graduate students enrolled in programs based in other Departments
and the Divisions. Our B.S. degree in ME allows for optional departmental concentrations in
aerospace engineering and manufacturing engineering and college-wide concentrations in energy
technologies, nanotechnology, and technology innovation. At the graduate level, the ME
Department offers a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and research, and professional Masters
degrees in both mechanical and manufacturing engineering.

The application deadline is January 1, 2014; however, review of applications will begin
immediately so applicants are encouraged to apply early.

Boston University and the Department of Mechanical Engineering are Equal Opportunity,
Affirmative Action employers.
