The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the State University of New York at Binghamton invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level beginning Fall 2017. The area of interest is solid mechanics. Candidates must have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field.
The successful candidate will have made research contributions in their respective area, will be able to obtain competitive external research funding, and will have a potential for quality teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in mechanical engineering.
Applicants are sought with a strong background in classical computational and/or experimental solid mechanics and a productive record of scholarship in applying this to novel materials and structures with applications in emerging areas. The candidate will be expected to conduct research and to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in one or more of the following areas: solid mechanics, strength of materials, fracture mechanics, elasticity, composites, and/or finite element analysis. The candidate's research should complement existing Department research areas, as well as University-wide smart-energy and biomedical related research (http://www.binghamton.edu/tae/). Department research areas include sensors, acoustics and vibrations, MEMS, mechatronics, biomedical implant design optimization, energy control systems, electronic packaging, computational fluid mechanics, microfluidics, nanomaterials, and nanotechnology.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering has undergraduate and graduate enrollments of approximately 400 and 110 students, respectively. The department has 21 faculty members. The Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Watson School are dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. Potential applicants who share this goal, especially underrepresented minorities, women and persons with disabilities, are strongly encouraged to apply.
