The new Department of Engineering invites applications at the rank of Associate Professor in any engineering area to begin in the fall semester of 2019.

Commensurate with the level of experience, the successful candidate will be appointed to a tenured position in the Department of Engineering and will help establish the new undergraduate engineering program.  We seek a colleague who will diversify our team through their scholarly pursuits and will provide significant educational contributions in support of our students’ development as engineers. We seek a colleague who is excited about building a new program that embodies the values of empowerment, integrity, inclusion, compassion, growth, and joy in every layer of our fabric (i.e., faculty-student interactions, faculty-faculty interactions, promotion and tenure guidelines, curriculum development, space design, etc.).

Wake Forest University (WFU), a top-30 nationally ranked university located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, welcomed its inaugural class of engineering students in August 2017. As a collegiate university, WFU combines the tradition and intimacy of a small liberal arts college with the innovation and vitality of a research university.  The Department of Engineering is the anchor program at the new Wake Downtown campus, located in WFU’s Innovation Quarter in downtown Winston-Salem, which serves as a convenient extension of the main WFU Reynolda campus with frequent shuttle service linking the campuses. Wake Downtown opened its doors in January 2017 and is a splendid canvas upon which to design and build a world-renowned engineering program. Embracing WFU’s culture as a leading collegiate university in the US [http://http://www.wfu.edu/visitors/quickfacts.html], the new Department of Engineering is part of the undergraduate College, which prides itself in realizing the university motto of Pro Humanitate (for humanity) through its commitment to the engaged liberal arts and the teacher-scholar ideal.
