Senior Lecturer or Lecturer in Mechanical Design

The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Yale University invites applications for a position to be appointed at the non-ladder rank of Senior Lecturer or Lecturer, to start in time for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Applicants are expected to excel in teaching project-based mechanical and machine design courses at the undergraduate level, as well as related concepts such as computer-aided design, machine elements, and manufacturing methods. Candidates should hold (or expect to receive by the end of 2018) a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related discipline and have experience teaching mechanical and machine design courses at the University level. An undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering is also desirable, as is further experience designing mechanical or electromechanical systems in industry or academia. The position will include working with faculty and graduate student instructors in existing design-related courses as well as developing new courses in mechanical and machine design.

The initial appointment is for three years, but may be renewed conditional upon a favorable review in the penultimate year and the teaching needs of the Department. Salary will be set commensurate with experience.

The Department will start reviewing applications on March 15, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled. Please apply at: http://apply.interfolio.com/48983.
