The Engineering Design Program at Penn State is seeking applicants for 
tenure-track faculty at the Assistant Professor level. New faculty will join a 
diverse team that is actively pursuing new initiatives in education, research, 
and service in cross-disciplinary methods of design that apply to most fields 
of engineering. In addition to traditional engineering design concentrations, 
applicants with backgrounds in manufacturing, built environments, biomedical 
applications, cognitive psychology, and human-computer interaction are 
encouraged to apply.
The Engineering Design Program (www.edp.psu.edu) is housed within the College 
of Engineering and is part of the School of Engineering Design, Technology, and 
Professional Programs (SEDTAPP) with related efforts in Technology-based
