at the University of Washington is hiring an Assistant Professor to
demonstrate excellence in teaching and research programs in our dynamic,
interdisciplinary intellectual community in Autumn 2023.

HCDE is a vibrant, welcoming, and engaged interdisciplinary community that
incorporates a range of intellectual traditions. Successful candidates will
join a dynamic faculty conducting research in the design and engineering of
sociotechnical systems broadly defined. We offer BS, MS, and PhD degrees
and serve as a founding contributor to three interdisciplinary graduate
degrees. Candidates will teach undergraduate and graduate courses and will

Teaching opportunities will be based on our current course offerings and
the individual’s areas of scholarly expertise. More information about our
department can be found at http://www.hcde.washington.edu.

The successful candidate will be expected to expand on one or more emerging
areas within the department, including:

   collaborations with fields such as engineering education, mechanical
   engineering, civil engineering, industrial engineering, systems
   engineering, environmental engineering, materials science, aerospace
   engineering, and bioengineering.
   - *Equitable engineering*. We are particularly interested in scholars
   whose work lies at the intersection of agendas oriented toward addressing
   societal inequities and work in human centered design and engineering.

Successful candidates will be expected to address the societal implications
of technology and think globally in their research. We especially encourage
candidates whose research engages Black Studies, Indigenous Studies, and
related strands of decolonial thought and/or centers the intellectual
genealogies of Black and Indigenous groups.

Successful candidates are expected to develop substantial programs of
research including peer-reviewed publications and external funding.

colleagues who in their scholarship, teaching, and service demonstrate
experience with, knowledge of, and sensitivity to the needs of culturally
diverse and oppressed populations. As a program with a core mission of
social justice and a deeply diverse student body, we seek candidates with a
demonstrated commitment to work with marginalized communities and with
students holding a range of worldviews. In accord with the University’s

religious affiliation, national and cultural boundaries, national origin,
worldview, intellectual origin, ability, and other identities. We invite
you to reflect and describe your related experiences in teaching and
service and also where you stand to grow with regard to issues of
