Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering, Manhattan College

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Manhattan College seeks outstanding applicants for a tenure-track appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, with a start date in August 2022.

At least one candidate will be hired with a specialization in thermal-fluid sciences, and at least one candidate will be hired with a specialization in solid mechanics/systems. Special attention will be given to candidates with an aerospace background. Applications will be accepted until positions are filled or December 15, 2021. 

The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering or a related field, demonstrate excellence in academic research, and a proven commitment to teaching and advising students. We seek faculty members with a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring who will create a climate that embraces excellence and diversity, to attract and retain a diverse, talented student body. Manhattan College and its faculty view research scholarship and education as mutually supportive activities. A successful candidate must demonstrate plans for research that integrate teaching and undergraduate student participation with their scholarly interests. This candidate must also be committed to the teacher-scholar model at a primarily undergraduate institution. Manhattan College Mechanical Engineering faculty are expected to maintain high-quality teaching, an active and productive research program, and apply for external grants when appropriate. 

This is an excellent time to join the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Having undergone significant growth over the last decade, the department has started to offer a concentration in Biomechanics at the undergraduate level, and an undergraduate concentration in Aerospace is being finalized. These concentrations are in addition to the nine concentrations that are currently being offered in the graduate program.
