Westmont College is seeking its founding faculty member for a new engineering major. Candidates must hold a PhD in engineering and have training or significant experience in mechanical engineering. A strong commitment to shaping an engineering curriculum to fit a Christian liberal arts context is essential. Candidates should also have a desire for interdisciplinary collaboration and have a track record of excellent and innovative teaching. This is a tenure-track position. The faculty member will also serve an administrative role as Director of an Engineering program. While a teaching load of 20-24 units will be required, the first year will involve a lighter teaching load to allow time to refine the engineering curriculum, design new courses, and recruit additional engineering faculty and technical support. Candidates with an active research program are desired; a regular professional presence in engineering could also serve as scholarly activity. Westmont is an EEO employer, seeking to be diverse in people and programs consistent with its Christian mission. Women and candidates from historically underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. Candidates will be considered on a rolling basis with the goal of on-campus interviews occurring in February and March.
