FACULTY POSITIONS IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
AND INSTRUMENTATION AND CONTROL SYSTEMS ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
Applications are invited for Lecturer positions in the Electrical Engineering Technology program within the College of Engineering and Science (COES). Lecturers in the COES are highly respected, integral parts of the college’s mission and structure. In addition to their central role of teaching, they populate and chair various committees, provide leadership in many courses and other areas of institutional need, and are eligible for a promotion pathway that parallels the traditional tenure track. Faculty in the COES are currently shifting the focus of the Electrical Engineering Technology program into the area of Instrumentation and Controls Engineering Technology. The successful candidates will be expected to help shape the specifics of this program by contributing to the development of relevant student projects, hands-on lab experiences and application-focused curricula.
The ideal candidate will have earned a minimum of a master’s degree in Engineering, Engineering Technology or a related field, and have a significant amount of industrial practice and/or teaching experience. Candidates must have at least a master’s degree with 18 earned graduate semester hours in closely related disciplines and 3 years of professional and/or teaching experience. An earned PhD in a related field is a plus but not a requirement; work done toward a PhD may be considered as professional experience. Demonstration of potential for outstanding teaching ability, written and oral communication skills, as well as a commitment to demanding high quality student work are expected. Candidates should also demonstrate: the ability to work collegially as well as independently; excellent leadership and organizational skills; and a willingness to keep abreast of developments in engineering technology. Specific areas of expertise sought include PLC programming and practical interfacing with various industrial measurement instruments, actuators and networks. Fundamental understanding of thermal, fluid, and mechanical systems will be seen as significant assets toward effective instruction in the instrumentation and control of such systems.
Louisiana Tech is designated as a Tier 1 national university by the 2016 U.S. News & World Report college rankings, and is the only Tier 1 national university in the nine-member University of Louisiana System.
