Regular Faculty Positions
Applicant Pool for Adjunct/Temporary Faculty Positions
The Department of Engineering Science has created a pool of qualified candidates who can teach undergraduate and/or graduate courses in the department. The Department continuously accepts applications from the interested qualified individuals to be added to this pool. Generally, a Ph.D. in electrical engineering or a closely related field is required, but applicants with a master's degree in electrical engineering with at least five years of relevant experience are also welcomed to apply. The applications are reviewed by the ES faculty. Those candidates who are found to be qualified and having expertise in the department's areas of interest are, then, interviewed by the ES faculty. The successful candidates are added to the above pool. As and when the department needs additional faculty to teach a course during a semester, the department faculty selects an instructor from the above pool most appropriate to teach that course. If the chosen person accepts to teach the course, he/she is appointed as an adjunct faculty/lecturer for that semester with the approval of the School Dean and SSU Faculty Affairs. Any questions in this regard or applications to be added to the above pool may be addressed to Chairman, ES Department and e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
