Position Information

The Department of Engineering and Physics invites applications for faculty positions in engineering and physics that likely will begin in Fall 2020.


For a tenure-track position, scholarship/research is required. For a college faculty position, an emphasis on primarily teaching would be desired. The faculty in the department currently work on research projects totaling nearly 5 million dollars. The major reason for the position(s) revolves around the need for more instruction as faculty become engaged in externally supported research projects. A strong interest in undergraduate teaching is also required, and involving undergraduates in scholarship activities is highly encouraged.

The BSE program has recently been accredited by ABET, and the department is housed in the new $50 million science complex that includes the state-of-the-art Halbert-Walling Research Center, the Engineering and Physics Labs at Bennett Gym, and the Onstead Science Center. The department has a reputation of producing students who excel not only in academics, but also show strong personal characteristics of honesty and integrity. The department currently enjoys a three year history of students obtaining 1) 100% employment or graduate school placement, along with 2) 100% passing rate on the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam.
