The newly formed University at Buffalo, Department of Engineering Education (DEE), in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) invites candidates to apply for the positions of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Full Professor. We are particularly interested in candidates at the Associate Professor rank but candidates will be considered at the ranks of Assistant Professor and Full Professor. The DEE was recently formed and will advance modern pedagogical tools and teaching methods including the field of online education. At the undergraduate level, the department offers a variety of SEAS courses including technical communications, engineering computations, statistics, and dynamics.
We are particularly looking for candidates who can operate effectively in a team environment and in a diverse community of students and faculty and share our vision of helping all constituents reach their full potential.
The DEE was recently formed and will study and advance modern pedagogical tools and teaching methods including those in the field of online education. The department was established by reorganizing existing faculty from within SEAS and currently numbers 13 faculty. It intends to grow by the recruitment of tenured faculty with expertise in engineering education, pedagogy, and assessment.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels, mentor graduate students, advise students at all levels and maintain an active research program. The successful candidate for an Associate Professor or Professor position should have a record of scholarly accomplishments, teaching experience and a sustained externally funded research program. We are particularly looking for candidates with a proven track record of publication and funding in engineering education, as well as experience in scaling and translation of engineering research to classroom practice. Desirable areas of research expertise include but are not limited to, one or more of the following: diversity/inclusiveness/persistence; pedagogy; the science of learning; assessment and engineering epistemology.
