The vision of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University is a nationally and internationally renowned program that attracts the world's top faculty and students and promotes a passion for learning and applying the knowledge of science and engineering to lead in providing solutions to the most challenging problems in the field. The thirty-seven tenured/tenure-track faculty include six members of the National Academy of Engineering and ten endowed positions. The student body is made up of 600 undergraduate and 140 graduate students. The department is committed to an extensive suite of facilities to enable leading research. The graduate and undergraduate programs are ranked 4th and 7th, respectively, among public institutions by U.S. News & World Report.
As part of a major growth initiative, we invite applications for multiple tenured or tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant, associate, or full professor levels. Resources will be provided to facilitate the initiation of independent research activities and opportunities exist for collaboration with leading Texas A&M faculty in related areas. We are particularly interested in faculty with expertise in:
Astrodynamics and Space Situational Awareness. Orbit dynamics, attitude dynamics, space robotics, guidance, navigation and control of space vehicles, low thrust trajectory optimization and space mission design (Position #FVN1442014)
Autonomous and Robotic Systems. Multi-body dynamics and control design, robotics, tensegrity systems. (Position #FVN1452014)
High Speed Fluid Dynamics. Laser diagnostics, flow control, experimental methods, plasma aerodynamics and energy conversion. (Position #FVN1412014)
Human Spaceflight Systems. Spacesuit systems and human anthropometrics, aerospace materials (e.g. woven fabrics), embedded sensors, structural dynamics, partial gravity fluid physics, environmental life support, displays and controls, and digital human modeling (Position #FVN1422014)
The successful applicants will be required to teach; advise and mentor graduate students; develop an independent, externally funded research program, participate in all aspects of the department’s activities, and serve the profession. Applicants must have an earned doctorate in aerospace engineering or a closely related science discipline. Strong written and verbal communication skills are required. Applicants should consult the department’s website to review our academic and research programs (https://engineering.tamu.edu/aerospace).
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, research statement, and a list of four references (including postal addresses, phone numbers and email addresses) as part of the application package to be submitted for one of the above positions at www.tamengineeringjobs.com. Full consideration will be given to applications received by January 1, 2018. Applications received after that date may be considered until positions are filled. It is anticipated the appointment will begin fall 2018.
