Experimental Fluid Dynamics Professor - University of Idaho

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Idaho invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor with expertise in Experimental Fluid Dynamics. The position will be available beginning in the fall of 2018. Successful applicants must have a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering or a closely related engineering discipline, and a record of accomplishment that demonstrates outstanding abilities or potential in the following skills: oral and written communication, undergraduate/graduate teaching and course development, experimental laboratory course teaching, research and grantsmanship, publication of scholarly activities in peer reviewed journals, academic and professional advising, and work-place cooperation. Duties include developing an externally funded research program, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, advising undergraduate as well as graduate students, leading instructional laboratory development efforts, and providing service to the university and profession.

Preference will be given to candidates in fundamental and/or applied experimental fluid dynamics with research experience using advanced measurement techniques in applications including but not limited to micro-scales (micro-fluid dynamics, molecular fluid surface interactions), macro-systems (environmental and industrial flow problems), and broader engineering applications such as complex fluids and energy-related issues. The state of Idaho has a growing economy with many exciting opportunities to collaborate with regional industry and government laboratories on fluid dynamics problems related to manufacturing, food processing, water/wastewater treatment, and nuclear thermal-hydraulics. Successful candidates will demonstrate the ability to develop and conduct independent research that augments and complements research strengths of current faculty in the department.
