Open Faculty Positions
Multiple Faculty Positions in Mechanical Engineering at Stony Brook University
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stony Brook University has expanded its search for multiple faculty positions in the Department of Mechanical Engineering: one or more in each of the following groups:
- ●Fluid/Thermal, with emphasis on thermal and/or fluid aspects of energy technologies, energy efficiency, alternative energy, fuels,
combustion, and building efficiency.
- ●Design/Manufacturing, with emphasis on robotics and automation science. Background in one of the application areas such as advanced manufacturing, service industry, medical and energy systems is a plus;
- ●Solid Mechanics, with emphasis on composite mechanics. Those with background in fiber-reinforced composites are especially encouraged to apply.
The positions are open for all ranks and compensation will be commensurate with qualifications. The successful candidate must have an earned doctorate in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field, a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching, and the ability to establish and sustain an externally funded research program.
The Mechanical Engineering department is part of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS), which consists of seven academic departments, as well as the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) and Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center.
Qualified applicants should submit a cover letter with a CV containing both teaching and research plans, and a list of four or more professional references. Please indicate in your cover letter which group you are applying to (Fluid/Thermal, Design/Manufacturing, or Solid Mechanics) and indicate three key words that describe your area of expertise within the group. For those who wish to join the Department in Fall 2013, the deadline for application has been extended to February 28, 2013, although applications will be accepted until all positions are filled.

Home to many highly ranked graduate research programs, Stony Brook University is located 60 miles from New York City on Long Island's scenic North Shore. Our 1,100 acre campus is home to 24,000 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students and more than 13,500 faculty and staff, including those employed at Stony Brook University Medical Center, Suffolk County's only academic medical center. The University is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities and co-manager of nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory, a multidisciplinary research laboratory supporting world class scientific programs utilizing state-of-the-art facilities such as the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, the National Synchrotron Light Source, and the Center for Functional Nanomaterials. Stony Brook is a partner in managing the Laboratory for the Department of Energy, and is the largest institutional scientific user of BNL facilities. As such, many opportunities exist for collaborative research, and in some cases, joint appointments can be arranged.
Stony Brook University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women, minority, and individuals with disabilities are
encouraged to apply.
