5. Position Announcement: University of Colorado, Boulder
The College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for a full-time Instructor position in the Engineering Plus Program. This program integrates traditional engineering disciplines such as Aerospace, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering with a multi-disciplinary and design-based approach. This position will support the Engineering Plus Program in teaching hands-on project courses and engaging in engineering education research. The Engineering Plus Program also partners with the award-winning Integrated Teaching and Learning Program to deliver hands-on, design rich engineering curriculum to students throughout CEAS. Candidates must have earned either a Master’s Degree, supplemented with extensive teaching experience, or a Ph.D. in an engineering discipline, engineering education or a closely related field. Successful candidates must demonstrate a strong commitment to high-quality undergraduate engineering education and active engagement in an engineering field. An interest in improving undergraduate engineering education and modern pedagogy is desirable, and teaching experience is preferred. Ability and desire to teach two or more core engineering courses (such as first-year design, engineering math, thermodynamics, statics, materials science, circuits, and data analysis) are essential.
The successful candidate will likely be appointed as an Instructor of the Engineering Plus Program, although appointment as a Senior Instructor is possible dependent on experience and qualifications. As with all CU-Boulder faculty, the position integrates teaching, service and research components. This is a non-tenure track nine-month appointment and involves teaching three courses per semester on the CU Boulder campus. The position will report to the Directors of the Engineering Plus Program. Applicants must submit their applications on-line at CU Boulder Jobs (https://www.colorado.edu/jobs/), job posting number 13685.
