The Nuclear Engineering Program in the College of Engineering at the University of Florida invites applications for a tenured/tenure track position at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor.  While the search is open to any area of nuclear engineering, preference will be shown to candidates in the following areas of specialization: reactor core physics, instrumentation and control, nuclear fuels and fuel cycle, nuclear materials, and radiochemistry. Successful candidates should also demonstrate the potential to collaborate with current faculty in the Nuclear Engineering Program and Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

The Nuclear Engineering Program is undergoing a major revitalization and expansion within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. We recently hired three new faculty members, and a search is underway for a new program director. The Nuclear Engineering Program offers an ABET-accredited B.S. degree in Nuclear Engineering and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Nuclear Engineering Sciences. We anticipate that the successful applicant will continue the traditions of teaching, research, and service that support our academic pursuits at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Nuclear Engineering Program was integrated into the UF Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) in 2011. This unique configuration provides a vibrant, multidisciplinary, highly collaborative environment. The department includes 35 faculty members, over 250 graduate students, over 340 undergraduates (undergraduates are approximately equally split between the NE and MSE programs), and over $12 million in annual research expenditures. Our faculty research activities are essential to the success of our programs; as such, new members of our faculty are expected to initiate and sustain strong sponsored research and graduate training programs.

The search committee will begin reviewing applications immediately and will continue to receive applications until the position is filled. To be considered you must apply by submitting an application through the jobs website at UF http://jobs.ufl.edu, reference position number 00009568 and attach the following required documents: curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, and contact information for three references.

In addition, PDF files of the application package should be e-mailed to Ms. Venice Walker (venice@mse.ufl.edu). For additional information about the Department and University, please visit our Web site at https://mse.ufl.edu.
