Instructor in Industrial & Management Systems Engineering

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (M&IE) seeks an energetic, dynamic instructor in Industrial and Management Systems Engineering. The non-tenure-track faculty member will join a diverse team that is actively pursuing new frontiers in engineering education and research in an interdisciplinary environment. Candidates with backgrounds in applied statistics, operations research or financial engineering are especially encouraged to apply. Highly desirable are candidates who can teach broadly across the breadth of industrial engineering topics. In addition to teaching, the instructor will have opportunities to mentor students, serve on graduate student committees and participate in research projects.

Candidates must have at least a Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering or related field by the start date. A PhD degree or relevant industry experience are desirable. Successful candidates will display effective communication and teamwork skills, demonstrate teaching effectiveness in engineering, and be committed to student success. Starting date is August 15, 2020.

Applicants should submit a letter of application and curriculum vita in PDF or MS Word format to, and send an email notification to Ms. Kathy Campbell at [email protected]. Screening of applications will begin January 20 and continue until the position is filled.



Composite Design Engineer

The Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at Montana State University invites applications for a full-time position to design complex composite parts using an innovative carbon fiber material.

MSU has been awarded a sizeable DOD contract to develop stretch broken carbon fiber for military rotorcraft. This position would design high performance composite parts using stretch broken fiber. Engineer would apply theoretical knowledge of composite mechanical properties in designs and use strong analytical skills to validate designs.

We seek individuals who are organized and detail oriented, who possess excellent interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills.

Because increasing the diversity of the engineering profession is one of our strategic priorities, women and underrepresented minorities in engineering are particularly encouraged to apply.

Top design position analyzing, designing, and developing complex carbon composite parts with advanced fibers. Supports development team execution on a DOD contract to develop stretch broken carbon fiber for use on military rotorcraft. Designs prototypes and discovers optimal applications of stretch broken carbon fiber materials. Responsibilities include composite design and analysis, material selection, process definition, and sample testing.


Applicants should submit a letter of application and curriculum vita in PDF or MS Word format to, and send an email notification to Ms. Cambrie Monfort at [email protected].

Screening of applications will begin on February 12, 2020 however, applications will continue to be accepted until an adequate applicant pool has been established.
