The Walker Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin seeks outstanding applicants for the position of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor in the Nuclear and Radiation Engineering Program. Specific areas of interest include but are not limited to computational radiation transport, nuclear science and engineering for non-proliferation and national security, nuclear analytical techniques for materials characterization, robotics for nuclear applications, nuclear fuel cycles, advanced nuclear reactor design, and medical and industrial applications of nuclear technology.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in Engineering or Natural Sciences related to Nuclear Science and Engineering and a record of accomplishment commensurate with rank. The successful candidates will also be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, maintain a strong sponsored research program, supervise graduate students, collaborate with other faculty, and be involved in service to the university and profession.
(1) cover letter, (2) curriculum vitae, (3) statement of research and teaching interests, and (4) list of at least five references.
Candidates should address their submission to Faculty Search Committee – NRE Professor. Evaluation of applications will begin September 1, 2018 although the search will be held open until suitable candidates are identified. Further information about the Nuclear and Radiation Engineering Program, the Nuclear Engineering Teaching Lab and the Walker Department of Mechanical Engineering at UT Austin may be found at http://nuclear.engr.utexas.edu and www.me.utexas.edu, respectively. The successful candidate will be required to complete an Employment Eligibility Verification form and provide documents to verify identity and eligibility to work in the U.S.A. The successful candidate must pass both a security sensitive background check as well as a Nuclear Regulatory Commission background check.
About The University of Texas at Austin-Mechanical Engineering
http://me.utexas.edu/researchareas/research/res-areas/nuclearradThroughout its long history, the Department of Mechanical Engineering’s nuclear research program has had a commitment to educating the brightest students in the United States and abroad — a commitment which grows stronger now as we expand to encompass health physics, radiation engineering, research reactor beam port experiments, radioactive waste management and reactor and computational nuclear engineering.In the future, the demand for nuclear and radiation engineers is expected to encompass new areas and technologies. Consequently, the graduate with a Nuclear and Radiation Engineering education can expect to have a wide choice of challenging and rewarding career opportunities. An education in Nuclear and Radiation Engineering prepares students to work on a variety of diverse problems at the frontiers of science and technology. These areas include nuclear power systems, space exploration, medical physics, nuclear forensics, and nuclear analytical methods.
