The School of Engineering at Brown University invites applications for tenure-track positions in our Fluids and Thermal Sciences Group. We expect to hire at least one person with interests in computational, theoretical or experimental fluid mechanics and soft matter, including: environmental fluid mechanics, bio-inspired or bio-mimetic systems (including bio-inspired robotics), soft matter systems, energy-related fluid mechanics, and micron-scale fluid mechanics. Interdisciplinary areas of research, with connections to broader fields of Engineering, Physics, Biology and Environmental Sciences are of particular interest.
The search committee will consider candidates for appointment as Assistant, Associate or Full Professor. Applicants should hold a PhD in Engineering or a related discipline, and must demonstrate the ability to initiate and sustain an externally-funded program of research, to communicate their research results at the highest levels, and to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
All application materials should be submitted online through https://apply.interfolio.com/53630, and include a complete CV, a statement of proposed research and a discussion of teaching interests. For junior hires (without tenure), letters from three references should be requested (the letter should be uploaded by the referee). For senior hires (with tenure), contact information for five referees should be provided (the search committee will contact those references directly). Applications should be submitted by November 12th 2018 to receive full consideration, although applications submitted after that date will be reviewed, as time permits, until the position is filled.
