The College of Engineering at the University of Michigan is excited to announce our search for an established, tenured/tenure-track faculty member as part of our unique, interdisciplinary engineering education research (EER) program. The faculty member hired through this search will join a community that includes eight core EER faculty – they will conduct EER as their main form of scholarship and will be embedded in one of the traditional engineering departments within the College of Engineering (https://www.engin.umich.edu/departments/). Accordingly, the ideal applicant will have experience conducting world class scholarship in EER, teaching in both EER and in a traditional engineering department, and providing service in support of both EER and an engineering department. They should also be interested in contributing to leadership in the EER program.


Applicants should have: (1) a Ph.D. in Engineering Education, STEM/Science Education, or Engineering; (2) a minimum of an M.S. degree (or equivalent) in a science or engineering discipline; and (3) at least five years’ faculty experience post-degree. They should have experience creating a strong and externally-funded research program in engineering education (which includes advising graduate and/or undergraduate student researchers and producing peer-reviewed publications), teaching EER and/or engineering courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and providing service and leadership to the profession. Applicants should also contribute to our goal of eliminating systemic racism and sexism by embracing our culture of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), and those who bring experience in academic program leadership are especially encouraged to apply. 

Application Instructions

To apply, please submit the following materials: (1) cover letter explaining interest in and qualifications for this position; (2) curriculum vitae; (3) two-page research statement; (4) two-page teaching statement addressing teaching in both EER and a specific engineering department; (5) two-page diversity statement; (6) up to three representative publications; and (7) names and contact information for three confidential references. Throughout these materials, applicants should describe how their research, teaching, and service would benefit both EER and one of our engineering departments. We are especially interested in applicants who contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community, so the materials should  also describe the applicant’s commitment and contributions to DEI.

The application materials should be submitted electronically at the following College of Engineering website: https://deptapps.engin.umich.edu/facultycandidate/apply?dept=216004&searchID=42. We will accept applications on a rolling basis, but applications submitted by November 15, 2023 will receive priority consideration. Please direct questions to [email protected].
