We seek creative, dynamic applicants at all levels (assistant, associate, or full) who will add new ideas, courses, programs, research, funding, and excitement to the Engineering Design program (DESIGN, www.edp.psu.edu) within the School of Engineering Design, Technology, and Professional Programs (SEDTAPP). Penn State is investing more than $300M in new engineering buildings that will transform the educational and research capabilities of SEDTAPP and DESIGN. These facilities include new multi-use design studios, “cornerstone to capstone” maker spaces, new research labs, and SEDTAPP faculty offices. The surrounding area is also very supportive: State College is a robust college town that values entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity. Its location in central Pennsylvania combines a good environment for families and young professionals with easy accessibility to New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and other metropolitan areas in the Northeast. New faculty will join a diverse team that is actively pursuing new initiatives in education, research, and service in cross-disciplinary methods of design that apply to most fields of engineering. In addition to traditional engineering design concentrations, applicants with backgrounds in computing, manufacturing, built environments, biomedical applications, cognitive psychology, engineering education, and other emerging areas are encouraged to apply. Collaborations with other departments in engineering and other colleges are strongly supported. Design experience in industry is desirable. The DESIGN faculty teach undergraduate and graduate courses and offer graduate degrees in engineering design. Successful candidates will become an integral part of the graduate faculty and should form collaborations with SEDTAPP’s other vibrant programs (see https://www.sedtapp.psu.edu/). Joint appointments with other departments are possible. DESIGN faculty represent many disciplines and collaborates across departments and colleges. Current research and teaching activities include: Design thinking, Design cognition, Design decision-making Industrial design, Interaction design, Integrated systems design, Design theory and methodology, Design for human variability, Design–build service projects, Sustainable design, Design ethics Machine learning, Design for additive manufacturing, Resilient construction, Design of sociotechnical systems, Humanitarian engineering, Social entrepreneurship and Engineering education. Candidates must have an earned doctorate prior to their start date in a field that is appropriate to support research and teaching in engineering design and be comfortable working in interdisciplinary settings. Evidence of excellent teaching ability is required. In addition to an application letter, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information for three references, the applicant must submit both research and teaching statements that demonstrate how their interests and experiences align with those of DESIGN.

See design.psu.edu for more details. To ensure full consideration, applicants must submit materials at psu.jobs/91618 by December 1, 2019, although materials will be accepted until the selection process is complete.
