Brown’s School of Engineering (SOE) is seeking applicants for a faculty position at the rank of Lecturer. The initial appointment would be for a 3-year period (renewable with potential for promotion and longer-term contracts). This position is part of a major expansion of the SOE over the next few years. The position involves teaching up to four undergraduate courses per year and advising undergraduate engineering concentrators. At least some of the teaching would be in first- and second-year course offerings. Candidates also will teach some upper-level undergraduate courses, based on their expertise and SOE needs. A background in engineering and/or physics and the ability to direct student projects with a MATLAB or Python coding element is essential.

The SOE seeks candidates who will contribute to its overall intellectual culture. Lecturers are voting members of the Brown faculty, are included in faculty meetings, advise undergraduate research projects, and may participate in graduate research with SOE faculty. Lecturers with substantial research participation and supporting funds will be eligible for periodic course release. The SOE values teaching and educational innovation and thus, welcomes candidates interested in formal research of education pedagogy in the context of teaching engineers. The SOE is commited to diversity and inclusion, which is reflected in numerous activities both within and beyond the scope of our courses.

Brown offers a vibrant community for both teaching and research, with 59 tenured and tenure-track faculty members and over 100 Lecturers, Professors of the Practice, Professors of Research, affiliated, adjunct, and visiting faculty members. The SOE has a strong undergraduate culture, anchored by a mature program of graduate and undergraduate teaching assistants, as well as a long history of top-caliber published undergraduate research. Research and graduate programs leverage disciplinary strengths in engineering as well as Brown’s broader interdisciplinary culture. SOE is a founding partner in multiple university-wide initiatives including Institute for Biology, Engineering and Medicine (IBEAM), Mechanics of Undersea Science and Engineering (MUSE), Initiative for Sustainable Energy (ISE) and the Center for Digital Health (CDH).

The position is expected to start July 1, 2024. In selecting candidates, we will consider quality of teaching, evidence of effective teaching, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and compatibility with the area needs and interests of the SOE, as well as potential for effective participation in school or university activities. For all applicants, we will consider potential for impact beyond Brown (through teaching, research, outreach, and other professional activities, as appropriate for the candidate). Applicants must have a Ph.D. by the start of the position. Applicants must submit a CV, a teaching statement, and a statement describing other significant professional activities beyond classroom instruction (e.g., research, training and work experience). Candidates must also arrange for at least three letters of reference to be submitted through the application website.

The School of Engineering believes that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to achieving our mission of advancing scientific knowledge and improving our world. We are committed to creating a welcoming and supportive environment that values and respects the diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives of all members of our community. We recognize that diversity encompasses a wide range of characteristics and believe that a diverse and inclusive community fosters creativity, innovation, and excellence in research.

Brown University, located in Providence, RI, is close to Narragansett Bay, an hour from Boston and about three hours from New York City. Providence has been rated among the most livable cities and is home to diverse intellectual, artistic, and business communities.
