The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities invites applications for multiple full-time tenure-track positions in manufacturing and supporting disciplines with a start date as early as fall 2023. Successful candidates will complement the current expertise in our department and will grow strategic synergistic collaborations within our department and the university. Candidate research areas should align with one or more of the following disciplinary areas and application areas:
Manufacturing, Materials and Mechanical Design – with applications to biomedical devices, additive manufacturing, smart materials and machinery;
Thermodynamics and Heat and Mass Transfer – with applications that relate to industrial manufacturing processes, including heat management in devices, bio heat transfer, and fabrication and evaluation of materials for energy storage and conversion; or
Plasma and Aerosol Science and Engineering – with applications to semiconductor manufacturing, clean room and particle technology, and filtration.
We primarily seek candidates at the assistant professor level; however, we will consider senior level appointments for exceptionally qualified candidates.
Applicants must have an earned Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) in mechanical engineering (or a closely related discipline) by the date of appointment. The successful candidate is expected to have the potential to conduct a vigorous and innovative research program. This candidate is expected to have the ability to effectively teach graduate and undergraduate level courses to a diverse group of engineering students. The candidate’s research and teaching activities should enhance the department’s teaching and research missions.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering values and is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. For this position, we welcome and encourage applications from a diverse community and particularly from persons in groups that are underrepresented in mechanical engineering. We further welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
The University of Minnesota, founded in the belief that all people are enriched by understanding, is dedicated to the advancement of learning and the search for truth; to the sharing of this knowledge through education for a diverse community; and to the application of this knowledge to benefit the people of the state, the nation, and the world.
