Energy Storage Faculty - San Diego State University
The Department of Mechanical Engineering seeks to fill a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in the area of thermal and electrochemical energy storage starting Fall 2018. Candidates with expertise in hybrid storage systems and system level integration are especially encouraged to apply, but demonstrated strength in one or more core areas of mechanical engineering is essential. Mechanical Engineering is one of the four departments in the College of Engineering at San Diego State University. It offers an EAC ABET-accredited B.S. degree program, as well as M.S. and joint Ph.D. programs. The department has internationally recognized programs in energy and thermofluids, material science and processing, bioengineering, mechanics, MEMS, NEMS, sensors, robotics, dynamic systems and control. It is anticipated that the person will develop synergies with areas of existing research strength and exploit emerging areas of research by developing a vigorous externally funded research program in the general area of energy storage. A demonstrated ability to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries is essential. The department shares with the College of Engineering and the University a strong commitment to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. He or she is expected to supervise teams of undergraduate as well as graduate students. Applicants must have a demonstrated ability to teach undergraduate and graduate level classes in one or more core areas of mechanical engineering.
