Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering - Southern Illinois University

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering is seeking to fill a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in the areas of Mechatronics, Robotics, and Control Systems. The candidates with expertise in application areas such as Automotive Systems Control, Bio-medical Applications, and Autonomous Vehicles are especially encouraged to apply. The Department has experienced consistent and sustained growth over the past few years, and has recently established a new B.S. program in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering. SIUE is a strong advocate of the teacher-scholar model, and therefore, the successful candidate is expected to teach undergraduate and graduate level courses in Mechanical Engineering, publish scholarly work, supervise graduate students, and participate in service activities. The successful candidate is also expected to establish and sustain an externally funded research program. The successful candidate must demonstrate a strong commitment to our new Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering program and be active in the design and teaching of classes that have extensive project-based learning activities.
