The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the University of Washington plans to hire a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (100% FTE, non-tenured, 9-month appointment) starting the 2020-21 academic year. MSE is expanding its faculty to address the growing need for professionals trained in Materials Science and Engineering in diverse areas ranging from manufacturing to healthcare. MSE is committed to being a model of diversity in the UW College of Engineering.
The appointment will begin in September 2020. The initial appointment is expected to be for 2–3 years. The position can be renewed, and the position is reviewed at the end of each appointment period for reappointment consideration. With pending UW faculty senate legislation, the position may be re-classified to Assistant or Associate Teaching Professor with an expansion of department governance, voting and leadership roles starting in the 20-21 academic year. Lecturers are primarily focused on teaching and service. The individual is expected to be the primary instructor for Senior Capstone Design courses with significant industrial outreach including the facilitation of student internships. Other instructional duties will focus on core/required MSE courses and electives with an industrial focus.
MSE has an extensive and growing curricular program. MSE offers bachelors, professionally oriented masters, and doctoral degrees.
MSE is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. Successful candidates will be able to reflect on how their approach to teaching and/or service contributes to positive social change and supports people who represent differences in gender, class, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, national and cultural boundaries, national origin, worldview, intellectual origin, ability, and other identities. It is anticipated that successful candidates will also be aware of where they stand to grow with regard to issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice, and their potential to mentor and educate diverse students.
The department is the home of dynamic, collaborative faculty labs, and faculty members who regularly collaborate with colleagues in the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Environment, College of Medicine, the Information School; and prominent research centers focused on energy, environment, informatics, and healthcare. Faculty members also routinely engage in research projects with affiliates from the region's high-tech industry and National Laboratories.
