Wheaton College seeks to fill a new tenure track position of assistant professor in engineering for the fall 2016 semester.
Wheaton's "3-2", or dual-degree engineering program, begun in 1969, has grown from a pre-engineering program and now includes a growing list of engineering courses in the catalog.
We are seeking candidates with an earned PhD in engineering, broad knowledge of the discipline, the ability to provide skilled and motivational instruction in lower division engineering courses, and a desire to engage students' passions and interests in an active-learning environment.
Industry experience as a practicing engineer, with hands-on design and project experience, is highly valued. It is expected that the candidate will maintain a research program on campus or in collaboration with neighboring national labs or industry, preferably one in which students are involved.
Interest in the interaction of Christian faith with the practice of engineering and active mentoring of students in this area is an important component of the position.
