Faculty Position in Dynamical Systems and Control


The School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Institute 

of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, invites nominations and 

applications for Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, 

or Professor in the areas of dynamical systems, control 

theory, and information science, and the interactions 

between these fields beginning August 2013. Salary and 

rank will be commensurate with qualifications. While all 

related areas of research in dynamical systems and control 

will be considered, we are particularly interested in 

exceptional candidates with nontraditional research fields 

of interest in emerging topics, such as information and 

energy systems, nonlinear and stochastic control theory, 

communications and network systems, computation and 

control, embedded systems, human-machine/human-robot 

interaction, robotics/AI, or hybrid systems, and their relevance to 

aerospace science and engineering.


Candidates are required to have a doctorate in Aerospace 

Engineering or a closely related field. The successful 

transdisciplinary candidate will have an outstanding 

research record and will be expected to teach graduate and 

undergraduate courses, supervise graduate students, and 

interact with the faculty on the development of a strong 

externally funded research program.


The School of Aerospace Engineering presently has 36 

full-time faculty members and its undergraduate and 

graduate programs are ranked among the top aerospace 

engineering programs in the nation. The research interests 

of the faculty cover a broad spectrum of aerospace 

engineering including gas dynamics, propulsion, 

combustion, aerodynamics, structural mechanics, flight 

dynamics, and control. Information about the School can be 

found at www.ae.gatech.edu.


Applicants should send (electronically or via mail) a 

curriculum vitae, a cover letter, a statement of teaching 

interests and philosophy, a statement of research plans, 

and the name and contact information of at least three 

references to: Vivian Robinson O'neal, c/o Professor 

Wassim M. Haddad, Search Committee Chair, School of 

Aerospace Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, 

Atlanta, GA, 30332-0150. Phone: (404) 894-3026, e-mail: 

vivian.robinson at aerospace.gatech.edu.


Review of applications will begin immediately, and will 

continue until the position is filled.


Board of Regents policy requires Federal and State 

background investigations, including a criminal background 

check. Georgia Tech is an equal opportunity/affirmative 

action employer.
