Engineering and Technology: Aerospace and Aeronautical
Tenure-Track Faculty Position
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
The MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions with a start date of 1 July 2019 or a mutually agreeable date thereafter. The department is conducting a search for exceptional candidates in any discipline related to Aerospace Engineering, broadly defined, although particular interests are in aircraft propulsion, fluid mechanics, and acoustics; aircraft design and optimization; aerospace materials and manufacturing; and the interaction of humans and machines.
We are seeking highly qualified candidates with a commitment to research and education. Faculty duties include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, advising students, conducting original scholarly research, developing course materials at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and service to the Institute and the profession.
Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics or another relevant field by the beginning of employment. The search is for a candidate to be hired at the assistant professor level; under special circumstances, however, a senior faculty appointment is possible.
To ensure full consideration, complete applications should be received by 1 December 2018. Applications will be considered complete only when both the applicant materials and at least three letters of recommendations are received. MIT is building a diverse faculty and strongly encourages applications from female and minority candidates.
