1. Do mechanical engineers only deal with classical mechanics?

2. Is it "relatively" easier to get a faculty position in engineering?

hmm, so do they apply theories of elementry particle physics or other modern physics?

Like the other guy said it's a broad field so the question becomes very vague. Different types of mechanical engineers apply different types of physics, depending on what they are designing. Mechanical engineers that design HVAC systems apply heat transfer, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics. Mechanical engineers that design car engines apply machine theory and material properties.

No, unless you're apart of a team that is building a particle accelerator but they usually have physicists for those concepts. Mechanical engineers also deal with heat transfer, fluid mechanics, aerodynamics etc.
