Join Our Faculty Team
Olin College of Engineering is growing its faculty team by recruiting candidates at all ranks who are passionate about having an impact in the world and educating the next generation of engineering innovators. We invite applications from individuals with expertise and experience in all areas relevant to our mission. Olin is committed to an inclusive and diverse environment, and we strongly encourage women and individuals from historically underrepresented communities to apply.
Olin College is a highly selective, gender-balanced undergraduate engineering college, which was founded in 1997 to develop students as exemplary engineers, to drive positive change in engineering education, and to do good throughout the world. Towards these goals, we have developed an innovative approach to engineering education that erases boundaries between disciplines, encourages students to take control of their learning, and emphasizes human-centered design and entrepreneurship. We have forged active partnerships with neighboring Babson and Wellesley Colleges and have co-developed transformative educational experiences with collaborators around the globe. We are growing our faculty team as we continue to innovate within and outside of Olin.
Realizing positive change in the world requires thinking big and taking risks. Our faculty are fueled by the belief that the future of engineering lies in transcending disciplinary boundaries. We are excited about all aspects of engineering, from understanding people and their needs, to the mathematics and science underlying new technologies, to delivering innovative services and products that improve the world. We enjoy working without departmental boundaries to co-design experimental, experiential, student-centric learning opportunities, and we thrive on involving students in our research, consulting, and other forms of professional work.
If you enjoy imagining ways students might better integrate engineering, computing, mathematics, science, design and entrepreneurship as they study complex technical systems and societal issues, we’d love to hear from you. We encourage you to submit the following information to Olin Faculty Search by Monday, November 13, 2017:
1. An Olin-specific cover letter.
Please tell us why you are excited to join Olin, and please explain to us how your externally-facing professional work (e.g., research, consulting, entrepreneurship) might contribute to the vibrancy of Olin’s community. Your cover letter should help us imagine how you might collaborate with our faculty, students and staff.
2. A current CV or portfolio as appropriate.
3. Contact information for references (optional).
Note: We understand that in some circumstances confidentiality may make it difficult to ask for references early in the application process; if you wish to defer references until later in the process it will not adversely affect your application.
Materials will be reviewed as they are received, and finalists will be contacted to submit additional materials. For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
Olin College is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We specifically invite applicants who can contribute to a diverse, inclusive community.
