The Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) seek
applicants for four tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in the Mechanical
and Aerospace Engineering Programs in the School for Engineering of Matter,
Transport and Energy. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Aerospace Engineering – structural dynamics, structural health
   monitoring, prognosis, sensors and controls, adaptive control, and aerospace
   propulsion. Submit applications to aerospace.faculty at asu.edu.
   - Autonomous Systems – robotics as applied to unmanned autonomous
   collaborative systems of air or ground vehicles, semi-autonomous
   'human-in-the-loop' systems with varying degrees of human intervention, and
   dynamics and controls as they apply to aerospace systems or processes.
   Submit applications to autonomous.systems.faculty at asu.edu.
   - Solar Thermal Energy Conversion and Storage – high-temperature
   materials and processes, thermal and thermochemical energy storage, solar
   thermochemical processes, and innovative approaches for solar thermal energy
   conversion. Submit applications to solar.thermal.energy.faculty at asu.edu.
   - Thermal Science and/or Transport – micro- and nano-scale transport,
   energy conversion processes, energy storage, solar energy, propulsion, and
   turbulent transport in energy systems. Submit applications to
   transport.thermal.science.faculty at asu.edu.

The successful candidate may be an experimentalist or
theoretician/computational scientist and will hold an earned Ph.D., or
equivalent. Appointments will be at the assistant, associate or full
professor rank commensurate with the candidate’s experience and
accomplishments, beginning August 2012. Faculty members are expected to
develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research
program, teach graduate and undergraduate courses in mechanical and/or
aerospace engineering, advise students, and undertake service activities.
The originality and promise of each candidate's work are higher priorities
than the specific sub-area of research.

Required qualifications also include demonstrated evidence of research
capability and commitment to teaching excellence as appropriate to the
candidate's rank. Review of applications will begin November 1, 2011; if not
filled, reviews will occur bi-weekly until the search is closed. To apply,
please submit a current CV, statements describing research and teaching
interests and contact information for three references to the appropriate
email address above. Current information regarding these positions is also
available at http://engineering.asu.edu/hiring

Arizona State University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action
employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. See ASU’s complete
non-discrimination statement.
