MULTIPLE TENURED / TENURE-TRACK FACULTY POSITIONS IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MME) in the Voiland College of
Engineering and Architecture (VCEA) at Washington State University invites applications
from outstanding candidates for multiple tenure-track/tenured positions at any rank.
Candidates with research interests in all areas of Mechanical Engineering will be
considered, but priority will be given to candidates whose research interests align with the
priorities of the School, specifically: Robotics/Machine learning and Manufacturing/Design.
The specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to: automation and control in nextgeneration manufacturing technologies, machine learning in measurement and control,
agricultural robotics, design for additive manufacturing, micro/nano-manufacturing or a
related area of advanced manufacturing.

MME has an ambitious goal to grow its engagement in the area of autonomous controls with
multiple hires in the next few years, and by leveraging its strong ties with the School of
Electrical and Computer Engineering through collaborative efforts. MME has significant
facilities and engagement in additive manufacturing and design, and intends to further
strengthen this. It is expected that the successful candidates will collaborate with the current
faculty to play leading roles in building strong, externally-funded interdisciplinary research
teams.

REQUIREMENTS:

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering or a related
field, excellent communication skills, and a demonstrated commitment to collaborate with
internal and external groups to build successful interdisciplinary teams with substantial
externally-funded research portfolios. Successful applicants will be expected to play
leadership roles in the respective areas, and be effective instructors for undergraduate and
graduate classes in mechanical engineering. Candidates at the full Professor level must
possess superior leadership skills and experience applicable to leading large research
programs.
