Dear colleagues,

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) at The Louisiana State University (LSU) continues its significant growth of faculty. The Department is currently seeking excellent applicants to fill two tenure-track positions in Mechanical Engineering.
The College of Engineering (CoE) at LSU is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth, which includes a brand new $110M engineering complex, a result of a public- private partnership.

The CoE actively encourages interdisciplinary research including, but not limited to, Advanced Manufacturing and Materials, Energy, and BioTechnology. Depending on their background, new hires will have the opportunity to leverage the resources and collaborative environments of the CoE, the National Center for Advanced Manufacturing (NCAM - https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ncam.eng.lsu.edu_&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=yf0HqhAQj_3-StRCmuVhOjAPZnFCHZsAbTsJqPqlz1M&s=khPVMnieyUpC07xjCbJ7VLGe1PCxlkQ0hYoStSqev0E&e=), the recently NSF-funded ($20M over 5 years) Consortium for Innovation in Manufacturing and Materials (CIMM), the Institute for Advanced Materials (IAM), the Center for Computation and Technology (CCT - https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.cct.lsu.edu_&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=yf0HqhAQj_3-S
