The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) invites applications for tenured or tenure-track appointments at the assistant, associate or full professor level in the general areas of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering. The preferred areas of research focus include, but are not limited to: thermo-fluids, thermal management and energy storage systems, dynamical systems and control, mechanics of additive manufacturing and tribology, biomechanics, healthcare, sensors and manufacturing.
Candidates should be committed to fostering diverse and inclusive environments as well as to promoting experiential learning, which are central to a Northeastern University education.
A PhD in Mechanical/Industrial Engineering or a closely related field by the start date is required. Excellence in research, teaching, and collaborative expertise that spans traditional as well as emerging thrust areas is highly desirable. Successful senior candidates should be established researchers with a strong record of funding, peer-reviewed publications, and technical leadership.
The MIE Department (www.mie.neu.edu) at Northeastern University is a successful and vibrant academic enterprise which is growing in both size and stature. The department comprises 57 tenured/tenure-track faculty members, including 24 new additions since 2014, about 1700 Ph.D. and M.S. students, and about 1500 B.S. students. A five year research contract vehicle from the Veterans Health Administration for $125M and a three year contract vehicle from the Army Research Office for $20M, received in early 2015, are bellwethers of both current success and future potential. In addition, of the eight federally-funded research centers in the College of Engineering, four are based in the MIE Department: 1) The NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) for High-rate Nanomanufacturing, 2) The NSF Center for Health Organization Transformation, 3) The NSF Center for Microcontamination Control, and 4) The VA New England Healthcare Engineering Partnership.
At the core of the Northeastern engineering education experience is our top-ranked cooperative education program, which contributes significantly to the integrated learning model of the College of Engineering.
Applicants should submit a detailed Curriculum Vitae, a clear statement of teaching and research interests and objectives, along with names and contact information of at least three professional references. Applications received by January 2, 2019 will receive full consideration. The target starting date is the 2019-2020 academic year, but the positions will remain open until filled.
