The MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics invites applications for
tenure-track faculty positions with a start date of July 1, 2017 or on a
mutually agreeable date thereafter. The department is conducting a search
for exceptional candidates with a strong background in any discipline
related to Aerospace Engineering, broadly defined. Areas of interest
include, but are not limited to, autonomous systems, materials and
structures, atmospheric and space sciences, space and jet propulsion,
manufacturing, real-time safety-critical software, cyber-security, space
systems and exploration, air transportation, and fluid mechanics. 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, leading a research program, and
service to the institute and the profession.

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in a field related to aerospace
engineering by the beginning of employment. The search is for a candidate
to be hired at the assistant professor level; however, under special
circumstances, a senior faculty appointment is possible. MIT is building a
culturally diverse faculty and strongly encourages applications from female
and minority candidates.
Applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, 2-3 page
statement of research and teaching interests and goals, and names and
contact information of at least three individuals who will provide letters
of recommendation. Applicants with backgrounds outside aerospace should
describe how a substantial part of their work will apply to aerospace
problems.

Applications must be submitted as a pdf at
