use of a unique multi-million dollar wind-wave facility, which is the centerpiece of a
focus area in offshore engineering that includes offshore wind energy, tidal energy, and
aquaculture facilities.
Responsibilities will include teaching core undergraduate and graduate courses in
mechanical engineering, establishing and maintaining an externally funded research
program, training M.S. and Ph.D. students, and actively engaging in service to the
profession, department, university, and state. To apply submit a resume, the names and
