Description

FULL TIME LECTURER WITH POTENTIAL SECURITY OF EMPLOYMENT

DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SANTA BARBARA

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. 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 term with possible load reduction for administrative service. Service will begin with the 2014-15 academic year, and salary will be commensurate with experience.

A Master’s degree in engineering or science and a demonstrated record of teaching excellence is required, and preference will be given to candidates with a PhD. Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching & education statement, names and contact information for 3 references, and additional supporting material as desired.

Applications must be submitted electronically at: https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/apply/JPF00255

Applications received by December 20th, 2013 will be given priority consideration, but the position will remain open until filled. Candidates are urged to learn more about the UCSB Department of Mechanical Engineering at http://www.me.ucsb.edu. The Department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service. The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
