Harvey Mudd College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis on physical realization of mechanical systems. The Department of Engineering seeks candidates with experience and knowledge in applications of mechanical engineering who can excel in teaching a broadly-based undergraduate curriculum focused on design, systems engineering, and engineering science. Applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to teaching excellence and professional growth. Industrial or other practical experience in the field is valued but not required. A Ph.D. or equivalent degree in mechanical engineering or a related field is required. The appointment is anticipated to be at the assistant professor level.

Teaching opportunities include the department’s required courses in solid/fluid mechanics and experimental engineering, participation on teaching teams in the design and/or systems engineering sequences, supervising sponsored projects in the Engineering Clinic program, and developing courses in the applicant’s area of specialty. Candidates should provide evidence of excellence in teaching and the ability to increase students’ hands-on engineering skills.

Harvey Mudd is a highly selective undergraduate liberal arts college emphasizing science, mathematics, and engineering. Candidates should discuss how the Harvey Mudd environment would provide opportunities for professional growth in research, consulting, or other forms of scholarship, and how undergraduate students might be engaged in these activities.

Candidates must be committed to teaching and mentoring a diverse student population, particularly groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering; candidates from these groups are encouraged to apply. All candidates are encouraged to describe in the cover letter the nature of their commitment to and experience in broadening participation of underrepresented groups in engineering.

Applicants should submit: a cover letter, a curriculum vitæ, a teaching statement, a professional growth/research statement, and the names of at least three references. For full consideration, applications should be received by December 15, 2016, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
