As a result of the ever increasing importance of engineering science to society and of a strategic commitment to innovation and leadership in engineering science, technology and education, the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE, http://maeweb.ucsd.edu/) at the University of California San Diego (http://ucsd.edu) invite applications for two (2) Assistant Teaching Professors in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (Lecturer with Potential of Security of Employment). We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise and teaching experience in the core areas of aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, including laboratory and design courses.
Generally, teaching professors are full-time employees who are expected to teach 2 courses per quarter. In addition to demonstrating excellence in teaching, individuals in this position are expected to engage in professional activities and service related to the pedagogical mission of the department and university.
A Ph.D. degree (or advanced to candidacy) is required in the area of Engineering or a related discipline at the time of application.
LPSOE faculty are expected to do much more than excellent teaching. They have leadership responsibility, not only as teachers, but as facilitators and initiators of instructional development, curriculum design, course structure, teaching methods, new technologies, and coordinating a spectrum of teaching activities. They play a leadership role in teaching in the departments and their disciplines. Further, they provide university and public service in addition to educational leadership beyond the campus and contributions to instruction-related activities.
Candidates should demonstrate innovative teaching methodologies, potential to teach core and advanced lecture and/or laboratory courses in mechanical and/or aerospace engineering, and be highly motivated to improve the undergraduate student experience. The required job duties include teaching and mentoring of university students, curriculum development, accreditation, service activities, supervising undergraduate research, and mentoring undergraduate teams in their professional activities (e.g. Formula SAE, Design-Build-Fly and other student competitions).
A candidate for appointment, merit increase, or promotion in this series is judged by the following criteria:
Teaching of truly exceptional quality that meets our long-term instructional needs
Professional achievement and activity; an appointee in the L(P)SOE series is expected to maintain currency in the profession and pedagogy
University and public service; Educational leadership in our programs and beyond the campus, plus substantial contributions to instruction-related, extra-curricular and outreach activities
Preferred candidates will have demonstrated accomplishments in areas contributing to diversity, equity, and inclusion, such as increasing the access and success of underrepresented students or faculty in engineering. Candidates should have a desire to participate in the School's diversity initiatives (http://www.jacobsschool.ucsd.edu/diversity/).
Salary: Level of appointment will be commensurate with qualifications; salary based on UC pay scales and market conditions.
Closing Date: Please refer to each recruitment posting to determine the closing date. These positions will remain open until filled. Applications received after this date will continue to be reviewed until the position is filled.
