Open Tenure-Track (Assistant or Associate) Faculty Position in Nuclear Engineering Program
The Nuclear Engineering Program (NEP), one of the three graduate degree programs within the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Ohio State University (OSU), is pleased to invite applications from outstanding individuals for a tenure track faculty position in nuclear engineering. This is a joint appointment with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
This search will consider faculty candidates having interest and expertise to develop a strong research program in the areas of thermal hydraulics, multiphase flow and heat transfer with emphasis on nuclear power generation systems, including advanced reactor concepts. The faculty candidate is expected to develop a research program in a manner compatible with the on-going activities in areas of nuclear fuel and materials, in-pile instrumentation, sensor, and control, reactor safety, probabilistic risk assessment, and software and human reliability. Whereas candidates are primarily sought at the assistant professor level, exceptionally qualified applicants at the associate professor level may be considered. The OSU NEP is enhanced by the OSU Nuclear Reactor Laboratory, which features the 500 kW OSU Research Reactor (OSURR). Experience with training or test reactors and/or plans for including the OSURR in the candidate’s research program are not necessary but are desirable.
An earned doctorate in nuclear engineering or an appropriate related field is required. We seek candidates having demonstrated the ability to conduct research at the highest level, and have a record of, or the promise for, outstanding teaching and supervision of students. The successful candidate will be expected to attract funding to develop and sustain active sponsored research programs, teach core undergraduate and/or graduate courses in NEP, and develop new graduate courses related to their research expertise. Applicants should also demonstrate the ability to contribute to research and education collaborations with OSU's Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
