I’d like to have the following announcement posted to the group.

Colorado School of Mines

Division of Engineering

Assistant Professor – Mechanical Engineering

Colorado School of Mines invites applications for an anticipated tenure-track faculty Assistant Professor position in the Division of Engineering – Mechanical Engineering specialty. Applications are sought in the area of control systems, robotics, and automation. The Division of Engineering offers a nontraditional, ABET-accredited undergraduate degree in Engineering with specialties in civil, electrical, environmental and mechanical engineering. The Division also has M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs in Engineering, with specialties in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering, and engineering systems. More information about the school and the division can be found at http://www.mines.edu.

Located in Golden, in the foothills of the Rockies, 13 miles west of downtown Denver and 21 miles south of Boulder, CSM offers bachelors, masters and Ph.D. degrees and has enrollment of over 4200 students in undergraduate and graduate degree programs in engineering and science disciplines. Research funding is approximately $30+ million annually.

Responsibilities: The successful candidate will be expected to develop and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in mechanical engineering, as well as to develop and conduct a successful funded research program. Examples of relevant research areas include mechanical or electro-mechanical design, bioengineering (prosthetics, rehabilitation, exoskeletons, biomechanics), field and service robotics, and distributed and reconfigurable systems.

Qualifications: Candidates must have received a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering or a related discipline by August 2008. Candidates for the position must have a research focus in mechanical or electro-mechanical design, bioengineering (prosthetics, rehabilitation, exoskeletons, biomechanics), field and service robotics, and distributed and reconfigurable systems. A commitment to excellence in interdisciplinary engineering education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels is required and candidates must have demonstrated potential to develop a self-sustaining research program. The successful candidate must demonstrate strong interpersonal and communications abilities.

Preference will be given for candidates who possess:

♦ An interest in multi-disciplinary engineering that shows the potential to interface with the sensing, communication and control group at CSM in a way that can build a long-term funded research program.

♦ An established record of scholarly accomplishments and/or funded research.

Compensation: Salary and benefits will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. CSM also provides an attractive benefits package including fully paid health insurance, the possibility for flexible work schedules, parental leave policies and dependent care assistance through a flexible spending plan.

How to Apply: Applicants must send a letter of interest, curriculum vita, statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information for 3 references to: Colorado School of Mines, Human Resources Office, Search #07-015030, 1500 Illinois Street, Golden, CO 80401, Fax: (303) 384-2025.

Review of applications will begin by January 15, 2008.
