University of Colorado Boulder

The College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for two tenure-line faculty positions (open rank) beginning fall 2018. We are interested in candidates with research experience in thermal and fluid sciences. Examples include: high temperature materials, thermal management and control for space systems, energy management, solar thermal applications, water desalination, multi-phase flow, high speed aerodynamics, biological flow processes, microfluidics, and combustion and propulsion.  By January 15, 2018, interested persons should apply through the web site (Requisition ID: 11156).

Johns Hopkins University

The Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering seeks applicants for tenure-track faculty positions at all levels and across all areas of Mechanical Engineering. Particular emphasis is at the junior level and in the areas of Experimental Fluid Mechanics and Thermal Processes; Energy and the Environment; Mechanics and Materials; Micro/Nanoscale Science and Engineering; Mechanical Engineering in Biology and Medicine; Robotics; Systems, Modeling, and Control; however all qualified applicants in all areas of Mechanical Engineering will be considered.

University of California Los Angeles

Positions in Aerospace Engineering this year focus on “exceptional faculty candidates in space related research areas”, as indicated, and positions in Mechanical Engineering focus quite broadly on “disciplines related to Mechanical Engineering”, including but not limited to fluid mechanics, transport phenomena, and control systems, with applications in energy, medical technology, robotics, cyber-physical systems, micro and nano technology, and emerging manufacturing technologies.  More specific information is contained in these ads as well as on our departmental website:

University of New Hampshire

The Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) is pleased to announce openings for two tenure-track faculty positions.  As stipulated in the posting (see the link below), candidates with expertise in advanced manufacturing and ocean engineering are of particular interest, but suitable candidates in all areas of ME are strongly encouraged to apply.  The ME department, and the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences (CEPS) in which the department resides, has cultivated strengths in the experimental and applied mathematical investigation of fundamental fluid mechanical phenomena that may be of special interest to this list-serve community.  Consequently, candidates with expertise that would complement ongoing research in ocean engineering and marine sciences (e.g. sediment transport and fluid-structure interactions) or in advanced manufacturing (e.g. physics based modeling, nonlinear dynamics, energy efficiency) are especially encouraged to apply.  For more details, please see the posting at:

University of Michigan

The University of Michigan’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering invites applications for a non-tenure-track Lecturer position in Environmental Engineering. With the recent introduction of an ABET accredited undergraduate environmental engineering program and a series of new Masters of Engineering (MEng) degrees, the department’s enrollments are rising, and expected to continue to do so over the next several years. To accommodate these increases in both the undergraduate and graduate environmental engineering programs enrollments, we seek a full-time lecturer to teach entry level basic engineering science classes, such as introduction to thermodynamics, environmental engineering, and fluid mechanics, upper level practice-oriented courses, such as our undergraduate capstone design class, and graduate level courses in support of our new MEng curriculum.

Interested individuals should submit their curriculum vitae, statement of their teaching philosophy, copies of relevant publications or pedagogic materials, and contact information for three references electronically to: All other inquiries may be directed to Dr. Christian Lastoskie (, Search Committee Chair. Applications are requested by December 1st, 2017 when the committee’s selection process will begin. However, applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Post-Doctoral Researcher in Particulate Flows

A post-doctoral researcher is sought for research in granular flow, mixing, and segregation for both industrial and geophysical applications utilizing a broad range of experimental, theoretical, and/or computational tools. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in physics, geophysics, chemical engineering, or mechanical engineering with experience in the flow of particulate or granular materials. The appointment is initially for one year starting as soon as possible, with further extensions possible. The research will be performed at Northwestern University, located in a culturally and socially diverse suburb of Chicago on the shore of Lake Michigan.  Email resume/CV to Professor Richard Lueptow, Northwestern University,

Sandia National Laboratories

Sandia National Laboratories is seeking a Postdoctoral Appointee to support experiments primarily in Sandia’s Hypersonic Wind Tunnel (Mach 5, 8, and 14), with some work involving the Trisonic Wind Tunnel (Mach 0.5 – 3.0). Experiments will utilize modern optical diagnostics and surface sensors to obtain high-fidelity data to enable physical discovery and support the development of computational models. Projects will emphasize boundary layer transition, shock/boundary-layer interactions, fluid/structure interactions, signal processing, image processing, and novel diagnostics for hypersonic flows. Please note candidates must have the ability to obtain a DoE Q clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship.
