About the UTC Institute for Advanced Systems Engineering
There is a significant national need to expand capabilities in analytical systems engineering deemed pivotal to successful product development, namely a) requirements analysis, b) architecture selection, c) model-based development, and d) system design flows. In recognition of this need, UConn, in partnership with UTC, has established the Institute for Advanced Systems Engineering, which serves as a hub for applied and theoretical research, workforce development, and industrial outreach activities on analytical systems engineering of complex physical and software intensive systems. The Institute's goal is to become a premier academic resource for advanced research, development and technology transfer, teaching and workforce development in distributed, heterogeneous, adaptive and intelligent systems. The Institute seeks to advance the science base of systems including design, validation, verification, modeling and methodologies, and accelerate its technological translation into sustained industrial support and growth.
The Institute is established with significant investments from the United Technologies Corporation as well as the University of Connecticut. The resources available to the center include two endowed positions, four endowed graduate fellowships, five new faculty positions, and a current team of more than 20 outstanding faculty members with research interests in Systems Engineering across the School of Engineering.
This is a 9-month tenure-track position with an earliest expected start date of August 23, 2017. The successful candidate's primary academic appointment will be in the one of the Engineering departments at the Storrs campus with the possibility of work at UConn's regional campuses across the state. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications.
Please submit letter of application; CV/resume; (3) three references; a statement of research and teaching (including teaching philosophy, teaching experience, commitment to effective learning, concepts for new course development, etc.); research and scholarship statement (innovative concepts that will form the basis of academic career, experience in proposal development, mentorship of graduate students, etc.); and a commitment to diversity statement (including broadening participation, integrating multicultural experiences in instruction and research and pedagogical techniques to meet the needs of diverse learning styles, etc.).
Evaluation of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Employment of the successful candidate will be contingent upon the successful completion of a pre-employment criminal background check. (Search # 2017166)
