Successful candidates will have the potential to develop an externally funded research program, supervise graduate students in research, and contribute to the highly interdisciplinary, collaborative, diverse, innovative, and entrepreneurial culture at Stevens. Candidates applying at the rank of Associate or Full should have a track record of success in scholarship, funded research, teaching, mentoring, and contributing to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
