Angelo State University is seeking a dynamic and energetic mechanical engineering faculty member with a focus in mechanical design and manufacturing to join our team in the growing David L. Hirschfeld Department of Engineering. Candidates who pursue experimental work and hands-on experiences are invited to apply. The department is especially interested in candidates who have interests in the following three broad areas: 1. Mechanical design. Within this area, candidates with experience on following topics have particular interest a) design of mechanisms and systems, b) machine elements and dynamic systems, c) modelling, design, fabrication, and characterization of mechanical systems. 2. Applied controls and robotics. Within this area, candidates are especially sought with an application focus of a) system control and optimization, b) mechatronics, c) design and fabrication of robotic systems. 3. Design for manufacturing. Within this broad area, of particular interest are candidates who apply a) manufacturing processes, b) equipment and control for manufacturing, c) design-and-build projects. Angelo State is a teaching-focused, Hispanic Serving Institution and member of the Texas Tech University System. The department hosts both a civil engineering and mechanical engineering program. The mechanical engineering started in fall 2019. Currently, the engineering program has 209 majors and graduated its first class of students in December 2018. The successful candidate will play a major role under a Department of Education funded grant to develop a mechanical engineering curriculum which is culturally responsive to our diverse student population. The candidate must be able to work collaboratively to build a practice-oriented, integrated, broad-based mechanical engineering curriculum, and actively participate in assessment duties that lead to ABET accreditation. This is a full-time tenure-track, nine-month, Assistant Professor position.
