The School of Engineering & Applied Science at the University of Virginia seeks candidates for a non-tenure track teaching faculty (Academic General Faculty, AGF) position in the Department of Engineering Systems and Environment (ESE: https://engineering.virginia.edu/departments/engineering-systems-and-environment ). In addition to the traditional on-grounds degree programs in systems engineering, the ESE Department offers degree and certificate programs designed for working professionals and others who prefer to earn an advanced degree or certificate without becoming a residential student. This will be a general faculty position at a rank commensurate with experience.
The department is committed to creating and benefiting from an environment where a diverse group of capable, inspired individuals interact and collaborate to learn and advance knowledge without barriers. The AGF, therefore, is responsible for teaching courses in the systems engineering degree program, to conduct and engage in educational and other research activities, to participate in service activities in ESE, to participate in ESE outreach programs (On-line programs, training programs, certificate programs, conference activities, industry events, etc.) as appropriate. They must have an interest in and ability to teach a broad set of courses in our curriculum at any level. Course load will be two to three sections per semester based on the faculty’s range of activities in teaching, service, and research. Promotion will be based on the SEAS AGF guidelines (https://engineering.virginia.edu/sites/default/files/common/offices/deans-office/policies-bylaws/2017.7%20SEAS%20Policy%20on%20Academic%20General%20Faculty.pdf ).
Candidates for a General Faculty position at the rank of Assistant, Associate or full Professor must have a PhD, teaching experience at the university level, and well-developed oral and written communication. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills and self-confidence to interact effectively with faculty and staff, working professionals, and industry/research sponsors is essential.
