Oregon State University’s School of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) will fill one or more full-time (1.00 FTE), tenure-track, 9-month assistant/associate professor positions to begin September 17, 2018. Responsibilities include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and developing a sustainable, externally-funded and nationally recognized research program in a technical subdiscipline of nuclear science and engineering. A Ph.D. in nuclear engineering, or a closely related field is required. Experience with (i) nuclear materials science, (ii) radiation transport modeling and simulation, (iii) nuclear safety and risk analysis, (iv) nuclear fuel cycle technologies, (v) nuclear reactor physics, (vi) nuclear systems design and analysis, and/or (vii) nuclear nonproliferation/safeguards/nuclear security is preferred. 

To review the posting and apply, go to, posting #P01684UF. The position(s) are open until filled. To be assured full consideration, applications should be received by January 18, 2018. 

Other duties and required qualifications are listed in the position description. In our growing nuclear science and engineering educational program, significant opportunities exist for collaboration with other Oregon State institutes and research clusters including the Oregon State Radiation Center, the Oregon State Materials Science program, the Oregon State School of Public Policy, and with the national laboratories, nuclear energy startup companies, and high tech industries in the Pacific Northwest. Oregon State is a founding member of the National University Consortium, part of the Battelle Energy Alliance, the contractor that manages Idaho National Laboratory – the nation’s nuclear energy laboratory. 

In Fall 2018, NSE’s faculty will be moving into a newly remodeled Merryfield Hall, increasing the possibilities for collaboration within the College of Engineering and other units at Oregon State, and allowing for increased radiation-related research space in the Oregon State Radiation Center.

The OSU College of Engineering is committed to building a community of faculty, students, and staff that is increasingly more inclusive, collaborative, diverse, and centered on student success. As such, we seek applicants who will broaden our capacity to advance student success across individual identities, racial/ethnic categories and socioeconomic backgrounds.

OSU seeks diversity as a source of enrichment for our university community. We are an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer, and particularly encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and others who share our vision of an inclusive community.
