The Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, invites applications for faculty positions starting July 1, 2024 or on a mutually agreeable date thereafter.
The Department is a world leader in the generation, control and application of nuclear reactions and radiation for the benefit of society and the environment. NSE faculty educate and conduct research in fields from fundamental nuclear science to practical applications of nuclear technology in energy, security and quantum engineering. We are seeking exceptional candidates broadly engaged in nuclear engineering, especially candidates focused on advanced modeling, simulation, and theory of complex nuclear systems; radiation transport and shielding; reactor and nuclear physics. See http://web.mit.edu/nse/ for more details about the department. The search is for candidates to be hired at the assistant professor level; under special circumstances, however, an untenured associate or senior faculty appointment is possible, commensurate with experience.
We welcome applications from a wide range of disciplines, however, a commitment to excel in teaching in one of the core fields of nuclear science and engineering is essential. Faculty duties will include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, research, and supervision of graduate students. Applicants must have a doctorate in Nuclear Engineering or a related Engineering or Scientific field relevant to research in the Department by the beginning of employment, and must have demonstrated excellence in research and scholarship in a relevant technical field.
Applications are being accepted electronically at https://faculty-searches.mit.edu/nse/. Each application must include: a curriculum vitae, the names and addresses of three or more references, a two-page strategic statement of research interests, a one-page statement of teaching interests, and electronic copies of no more than three representative publications. In addition, candidates must provide a statement regarding their views on diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past and current contributions as well as their vision and plans for the future in these areas. Each candidate must also arrange for three or more reference letters to be uploaded electronically.
Recognizing MIT’s strong commitment to diversity in education, research and practice, minorities and women are especially encouraged to apply.
Employment is contingent upon the completion of a satisfactory background check, including verifying any finding of misconduct (or pending investigation) from prior employers.
Applications received before December 20, 2023 will be given priority.
