The College of Engineering & Applied Science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee invites applications for tenure / tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks starting in August 2022.  The College is strategically hiring to expand and enhance our capabilities in each of six key strength areas: Advanced Manufacturing, Biomedical and Health, Embedded Systems, Energy & Sustainability, Transportation, and Water and Water Technology.  Our strength areas draw from all departments in the college; therefore, applicants will be considered from any discipline.  It is expected that successful candidates will develop strong collaborations with existing faculty, while at the same time independently contribute to these strength areas. 

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) is a doctoral/research intensive university, R1 in the Carnegie Classification, and is also Wisconsin’s premier public urban institution offering comprehensive professional, science, and liberal arts education at the undergraduate and graduate level to its 25,000 students.  

The College of Engineering & Applied Science (CEAS) is committed to excellence in scholarly research and teaching across all seven departments—Biomedical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
