All professional ranks (Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor) will be considered. Lecturer (non-tenure-track) positions are also available for highly qualified teaching faculty. Applicants must have a doctorate or complete one by their start date in the relevant area or a closely related field. Successful tenure-track candidates are expected to actively participate in multidisciplinary research efforts in the College; initiate, build and sustain an externally funded research program; and supervise masters and doctoral students. Excellent written and oral communication skills, strong teaching skills, and a commitment to high quality professional service and active participation in college responsibilities are expected. The College is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. The University is a doctoral granting public institution that enrolls over 12,000 students from 48 states and 68 foreign countries.

Research activity is leveraged through one or more of the College’s multidisciplinary centers of excellence in micro and nanotechnology, biotechnology and biomedical applications, cyber security, trenchless technology, STEM education or applied physics research.
