InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
The Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering (MANE) at RENSSELAER 
POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE in Troy, NY invites applications for a tenure-track senior faculty position in the 
area of Computational Science and Engineering to begin August 15, 2019 or thereafter. The emphasis is 
on individuals at the Associate or Full Professor level. Special consideration will be given to candidates 
with expertise in emerging aspects of computational fluid dynamics with forward looking applications 
including, but not limited to, energy and the environment, advanced manufacturing, high-energy and 
reactive systems, and biomedical systems.

Candidates must possess an earned PhD or foreign degree equivalent in Mechanical or Aerospace 
Engineering or a closely related field, long with evidence of effective teaching, and a national or 
international record of research, academic, and/or scholarly recognition, as typically achieved through 
10 or more years in a tenure track position. The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to carry 
out the following position duties: develop and maintain an internationally recognized, interdisciplinary 
program of funded research in Mechanical, Aerospace or Nuclear Engineering, to actively contribute to 
the core graduate and undergraduate teaching missions of MANE and engage in department, institute 
and professional service activities.

MANE is in a period of unprecedented growth. Our research addresses some of the world’s most pressing 
technological challenges—from energy and sustainable development to materials, manufacturing, 
controls, adaptive and resilient systems, biotechnology and human health. The department’s annual 
research expenditures total more than $15 million. More than 1,400 undergraduate students and 150 
graduate students are currently enrolled in MANE.

Faculty have access to world-class research facilities and an atmosphere that promotes deep 
interdisciplinary collaborations. The New York State Center for Future Energy Systems conducts 
fundamental and applied research to accelerate the development of energy efficient and renewable 
energy technologies. The Center for Materials, Devices, and Integrated Systems aims to advance next-
generation electronic and optical devices, manufacturing and robotics, integrated biomaterial devices, 
energy harvesting and storage, electric transmission/distribution, responsive and adaptive built 
environments, and nanostructured composite materials. The Center for Computational Innovation and 
Scientific Computation Research Center provide state-o-the-art computing facilities. The Center for 
Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies and the Center for Modeling, Simulation and Imaging in 
Medicine are engaged in both fundamental and translational biomedical research. The Institute for Data 
Exploration and Applications and the Experimental Media and the Cognitive Immersive Systems Lab 
provide new and exciting opportunities to manipulate and experience data and cognitive computing.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, founded in 1824, is America’s first technological research university. 
Rensselaer faculty and alumni represent 85 members of the National Academy of Engineering, 17 
members of the National Academy of Sciences, 25 members of the American Academy of Arts and 
Sciences, 8 members of the National Academy of Medicine, 8 members of the National Academy of 
Inventors, and 5 members of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, as well as 6 National Medal of 
Technology winners, 5 National Medal of Science winners, and a Nobel Prizewinner in Physics. With 
7,000 students and nearly 100,000 living alumni, Rensselaer is addressing the global challenges facing 
the 21st century—to change lives, to advance society, and to change the world.
