Multiple Faculty Positions, Space Systems and Robotics - West Virginia University

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at West Virginia University (WVU) invites applications and nominations for multiple tenure-track faculty positions in the general areas of Space Systems and Robotics. The research track record of the successful candidates in these areas is considered to be more important than his/her particular focus or expertise in a highly specialized subject. These positions are anticipated to be filled starting in August 2018 at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor, depending upon qualifications.
Eligible candidates must hold an earned Doctorate degree in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, robotics engineering, or a closely related field, at the time of appointment. The successful candidate must have the ability to (1) teach lecture, laboratory or design courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, (2) develop and sustain an independent, nationally recognized, externally-sponsored research program, (3) collaborate within multi-disciplinary teams of faculty and other researchers across colleges and institutions, and (4) perform professional service activities. A notable record of peer-reviewed publications and other scholarly activities, effective communication skills, and evidence of potential to attract competitive research funding are required for these positions. Candidates for the rank of Associate Professor must also have an outstanding record of teaching, research and service.
