Faculty Position in Autonomy (AE/IRIM-GaTech)

The Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines and the School of Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) invites nominations and applications for a faculty position in the general area of autonomous and intelligent systems. The appointment is expected to be at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, but appointments at the Full Professor level will be considered for exceptional candidates having demonstrated a superior research and teaching record.

Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels as well as to the development of an externally funded research program.  An earned doctorate in Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science/Engineering, Software Engineering or a closely related field is required.

The Aerospace Engineering program at Georgia Tech is the largest program of its kind in the US, having approximately 40 full-time faculty members, and more than 800 undergraduate students and 500+ graduate students. Its undergraduate and graduate programs are typically ranked among the top aerospace engineering programs in the nation. The research interests of the faculty cover a broad spectrum including gas dynamics, propulsion, combustion, aerodynamics, structural mechanics, flight mechanics, robotics and autonomy, orbital mechanics, rotorcraft, aircraft and space systems design, dynamics and control, air-traffic control, and cognitive engineering.
