Assistant Professor Of The Practice Of Design, Engineering And Applied Science

Wesleyan University Middletown , CT 06457

Posted 2 months ago

Wesleyan University invites applications for an Assistant Professor of the Practice in Integrated Design, Engineering, and Applied Science (IDEAS) to begin July 1, 2020. This is an initial three-year term, with the possibility of renewal and promotion.

The primary focus of the position is teaching courses that provide students with practical design, engineering, and problem-solving skills. The successful candidate should embrace a liberal-arts approach that integrates traditional engineering with design, and be capable of teaching interdisciplinary engineering courses with hands-on projects from introductory to advanced levels. In addition, there will be an opportunity to teach courses in the candidate's specific area of specialization.

The faculty member is expected to use/apply CAD tools, programming languages and principles of design, and to contribute to the growth and development of the IDEAS program. The applicant will also be expected to occasionally work evenings and weekends, as needed. Project-based courses will be taught in our IDEAS Lab makerspace that was completed in 2019.

The makerspace includes a wide variety of traditional and digital fabrication tools (laser engravers, water jet, CNC mill, etc.), and a successful candidate will collaborate with the makerspace coordinator. In addition, a professional machine shop is available directly adjacent to the makerspace.

The Assistant Professor of the Practice position is an untenured position, renewable on the basis of performance. Owing to the interdisciplinary nature of the appointment, the primary affiliation will be with the College of Integrative Sciences; a secondary appointment in the department nearest to the faculty member's expertise is also possible.

The primary responsibility of this position is a five-course per year load to teach and possible co-teach courses in the IDEAS program. In addition, administrative and curriculum development duties are expected, including advising students, and reviewing student certification in the program.
