The Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering at the United States Naval Academy invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in ocean engineering.  The Ocean Engineering Program is ABET-accredited and offers an undergraduate curriculum with specialty tracks in civil and environmental aspects of ocean engineering and in deep-ocean technology.  We seek candidates who can contribute to teaching and research in either of the specialty tracks, and who could teach in two or more of the following areas: ocean engineering design, ocean instrumentation, wave mechanics, environmental engineering in the oceans, and underwater vehicles or related aspects of deep-ocean engineering.  Of special interest are qualifications that could support our design curriculum.  Applicants must have an earned doctoral degree in ocean engineering, or in a closely-related discipline, such as civil engineering, mechanical engineering, or naval architecture with a demonstrated emphasis on ocean engineering.  Preference will be given for appointment at the Assistant Professor level; however, exceptionally well-qualified candidates with significant engineering design experience will be considered for appointment at the Associate Professor level.  Candidates will be expected to teach at the undergraduate level and to establish a program of sponsored research, making use of the Academy’s world-class ocean engineering laboratories, which include two wave/towing tanks and a coastal engineering basin.  As an institution dedicated to educating future naval officers, the Naval Academy seeks candidates who will be outstanding teachers and role-models for Midshipmen.  U.S. citizenship or permanent residence status is preferred.  The proposed starting date is August 15, 2014.  Application review will begin on February 15, 2014 and continue until the position is filled.  Applicants should submit a detailed C.V., a statement of their teaching and research interests, and names and addresses of three references to the chair of the search committee, Dr. Michael P.
