The MIT Nuclear Science and Engineering Department invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position.
The Department is a world leader in the engineering and application of nuclear and radiation systems. Its faculty teach and conduct research in fields from fundamental nuclear science to practical applications of nuclear technology in energy, security and other fields. Areas of particular interest are in the broad field of nuclear science and technology for systems safety, and radiation detection and analysis; for example risk assessment and management, radiation generation, detection and imaging.
Outstanding applicants in the Department's other fields of research and education will also be considered. These include advanced modeling, simulation, theory, and experimentation in fission reactor systems, the nuclear fuel cycle, plasma physics and fusion technology, advanced materials for extreme environments, and radiation science and technology. [See http://web.mit.edu/nse/].
Applicants must have a doctorate in a relevant engineering or scientific field by the beginning of the appointment period, and must have demonstrated excellence in research and scholarship in a relevant
technical field. A commitment to excel in teaching in one of the subfields of nuclear science and engineering is essential. Faculty duties will include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels,
research, and supervision of graduate students.
To apply, submit a curriculum vita and a description of research and teaching interests online at https://school-of-engineering-faculty-search.mit.edu/nse-search/register.tcl. Each candidate must also arrange for three or more reference letters to be uploaded electronically.
MIT is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Applications received before February 28th, 2013 will be given priority.
