The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara seeks applications for a full-time Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment (similar to tenure-track) in the area of Mechanical Design, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2019.
This position is intended for an innovative individual with an enthusiasm for, and breadth of knowledge in, mechanical design and its emerging applications in diverse fields. A successful applicant should be committed to teaching and mentoring undergraduates, to improving the undergraduate mechanical engineering program, and to recruiting talented and diverse high-school graduates in collaboration with other faculty. The ideal candidate will engage, excite, and challenge students in problem solving with a combination of design creativity and engineering analysis. Teaching assignments may include topics such as machine elements, machine design, joint design and analysis, adhesive bonding and welding, machine dynamics and fatigue, design process, design for manufacturing, teamwork, project planning, creative thinking, engineering graphics, and CAD. Consequently, the ideal candidate should be interested and experienced in teaching in different educational settings - from small, project-oriented, inquiry-based classes, to larger, more traditional, lecture-oriented classes. The teaching load is 3 courses per quarter with possible load reduction for administrative service. Service is expected to begin with the 2019-20 academic year.
A PhD degree in engineering or science and a demonstrated record of teaching excellence is required.
