Seeking Postdoctoral Scholar to work on the development of advanced neutron transport methods
The Department of Nuclear Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) is seeking applications to fill a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level starting August 1, 2017. Duties will include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in nuclear engineering-related subjects, generating externally funded research, advising graduate students, writing scholarly journal articles, and providing service to the department, college, university, and community. Applicants must have a doctorate in Nuclear Engineering or a closely related field by the effective date of appointment.
Applicants should be able to contribute to existing courses and research activities in nuclear engineering, as well as to develop new avenues of research and teaching. The preferred areas of research and teaching specialization include reactor physics, reactor dynamics and safety, or advanced reactor design. However, research experience in the areas of nuclear materials research with a focus on nuclear fuels or materials degradation in fission or fusion reactors; nuclear system instrumentation & controls; monitoring and diagnostics; reactor dynamics; nuclear security; nuclear materials safeguards; nuclear medicine; nuclear chemistry; or numerical methods development for nuclear engineering applications, will also be considered. Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated research success that complements existing University of Tennessee strengths, and with the ability to demonstrate collaborative research activities. In addition to demonstrated excellence in research and the potential for developing a highly visible, externally funded research program, successful candidates will also have demonstrated the potential for high-quality undergraduate and graduate teaching.

|CNEC JFA Faculty Position
The Department of Nuclear Engineering offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Nuclear Engineering. We are the only nuclear engineering program in the state of North Carolina and one of the premier departments in the southeast United States. The Carolinas currently contribute to the advancement of the nuclear enterprise regionally, nationally, and internationally. Through collaborative efforts of various stakeholders, NC State’s Nuclear Engineering Department is increasing its footprint on the national and global levels.
The strengths of the Department include a growing faculty, rising graduate enrollments, and increasing research funding. The Department houses excellent research facilities including the PULSTAR research nuclear reactor and the Consortium for Engineering Applications of Radioisotopes (CEAR) that has maintained continuous industrial funding since 1980. NC State is a member of the consortia that manage Idaho National Lab (INL) and Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) for the US Department of Energy (DOE). In 2014, NC State was awarded a $25M grant by the DOE National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to create the Consortium for Nonproliferation Enabling Capabilities (CNEC) comprised of seven partner universities and three national laboratories. CNEC’s vision is to become the preeminent research and education hub dedicated to the development of enabling technologies and technical talent for meeting the present and future grand challenges of nuclear nonproliferation.
The Department’s diverse research portfolio is organized along four major tracks: (1) radiation and radioisotope applications engineering including nuclear security, (2) fission engineering, (3) plasma and fusion engineering, and (4) cross-cutting areas including nuclear computational science and nuclear materials science. Specific sub-areas of interest given the nuclear security emphasis are radiation detection including spectrometry and imaging, fuel cycle analysis, and plasma-based radiation sources.
The duties and responsibilities of this position include:
• Teach 1-2 undergraduate and graduate level courses per semester in nuclear engineering.
