Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering


The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Arizona State University invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track/tenured faculty position.  The appointment will be commensurate with the candidate's experience and accomplishments and can be at the assistant, associate or full professor rank, beginning August 2009.  At the time of appointment, candidates must have an earned doctorate in engineering or a related field.  


Specific duties include the development of an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, graduate and undergraduate teaching and advisement, and service activities. The Department is particularly interested in candidates who work in the areas of, 

·       Biomechanics/biomedical robotics with emphases in human sensory-control systems, robust mobility and manipulation, kinematics and dynamics.

·       Computational mechanics with emphases in multi-scale or multi-physics coupling, biological systems, or nanomechanics.  

·       Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) with emphases in flight dynamics and control, propulsion, sensing, structural mechanics/dynamics, and/or flow control.   


The open position leverages investments by the University promoting interdisciplinary teaching and research, including the Biodesign Institute (http://www.biodesign.asu.edu <http://www.biodesign.asu.edu/> ), Global Institute of Sustainability (http://sustainability.asu.edu/gios), High Performance Computing Initiative (http://hpc.asu.edu <http://hpc.asu.edu/> ), and School of Earth and Space Exploration (http://sese.asu.edu <http://sese.asu.edu/> ).


Required qualifications include having an earned doctorate in Engineering or related field and demonstrated evidence of research capability and commitment to teaching excellence as appropriate to the candidate's rank.  Desired qualifications include ability to collaborate on multidisciplinary research initiatives. Review of applications begins February 2, 2009 and will continue weekly until the search is closed. 


Candidates should send via email to mae at asu.edu a cover letter, detailed résumé, brief statement of research and teaching interests, and contact information (name, address and telephone number) for three professional references.
