The Department of Nuclear Engineering and Industrial Management (NEIM) at the University of Idaho invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured faculty at the associate/full professor level in all areas of nuclear engineering including fuel cycles, nuclear materials, advanced reactors, nuclear decommissioning, neutronics, and/or thermal-hydraulics. Specifically, the area(s) of interest are environmental degradation of pressure boundary components, waste package canisters, molten salt reactor components; and molten salt pyroprocessing of used nuclear fuels. The position is in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. degree in Nuclear Engineering (NE) or a closely related field and would have to demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching courses in the areas of their expertise and NE program needs and advise/mentor graduate students. Preference will be given to candidates who have extensive teaching and research experience/accomplishments in an academic setting. The faculty will be expected to engage actively in seeking extramural research funding from different grant agencies and take advantage of the resources available at the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES) and its associated facilities. The proximity of the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) provides unmatched opportunities for faculty to develop research collaborations with INL. The successful candidate will play an active role within the NEIM Department by identifying instructional needs in consultation with the department chair and resident faculty at the Idaho Falls Center and engage in internal service activities. The selected candidate will have to meet the criteria for obtaining a US Department of Energy security clearance.
As an Associate or Full Professor, faculty is expected to teach courses as assigned, depending on the needs of the department. Associate or Full Professors are also expected to provide mentoring to selected graduate students and student teams, as department needs arise.
Associate or Full Professors are in charge of instruction in assigned classes or laboratories and have independent responsibility in the determination of course objectives, methods of teaching, and the subject matter to be covered. Associate or Full Professors should strive to make their courses organized, relevant, and engaging to their students. They are expected to play significant roles in planning and implementing vertical and horizontal course integration and to continuously keep their course content and delivery methods current or ahead of current professional practice. They should try to maintain student teaching evaluation scores that average above 3.0 in each of their courses. Associate/Full Professors will provide students with accurate academic and career planning assistance during student advising.
Associate/Full Professors are expected to play leading roles in initiating, conducting, and directing their scholarly activities. Mentoring, supporting and publishing with graduate students is an important component of this scholarship and is expected to continue at the level of Associate/Full Professor. Papers should be published in peer-reviewed journals and in peer- reviewed conference proceedings.
The Department of Nuclear Engineering and Industrial Management was created in the mid-2020. It brought together three graduate degree programs – Nuclear Engineering, Engineering Management and Technology Management and an undergraduate degree program in Industrial Technology, under the same umbrella. The department is located in Idaho Falls Center and is located near to the Idaho National Laboratory. In addition, several undergraduate and graduate certificate programs are offered.
