The UNC Charlotte Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science invites interested applicants to apply electronically for available positions at UNC Charlotte's Applicant Site.


Assistant/Associate/Full Professor, Automotive Engineering (Position # 1837)

THE DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING AND ENGINEERING SCIENCE AT UNCCHARLOTTE is currently seeking candidates for a tenure track faculty position (rank depends on the qualifications of the successful candidate) in the general area of automotive engineering. Although preference will be given to candidates with research and teaching interests related to autonomous vehicles, IC engines, vehicle dynamics, emission and heat recovery, conventional and hybrid vehicle propulsion systems, and combustion/powertrain controls, strong candidates with expertise in other areas will be considered as well.

The successful candidate should be committed to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and supervising undergraduate capstone projects and graduate theses/dissertations. In addition, it is expected that the successful candidate will establish relationships with local and national industrial partners, publish in leading research journals, and establish a strong externally funded research program.

Applicants must have an earned Ph.D. in engineering. Experience with the automotive industries or Tier 1 automotive suppliers is desired for this position, and preference will be given to candidates with established ties with industry or national labs. An appointment at the assistant professor level is anticipated but higher ranks may be considered for truly outstanding candidates with strong teaching and research accomplishments, and a proven track record of securing external funding. Applicants at the Assistant Professor level should demonstrate the potential for securing external funding and a strong commitment to teaching.

This position will remain open until filled. Review of applicants will begin December 12, 2016 and continue until a selection has been made.

As an EOE/AA employer and an ADVANCE Institution that strives to create an academic climate in which the dignity of all individuals is respected and maintained, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte encourages applications from all underrepresented groups. All finalists are subject to criminal background checks.
