Tenure/Tenure-Track position for Aerospace Science and Engineering
The College of Engineering (CoE) at the University of Miami ( Coral Gables, FL) invites nominations and applications for a tenured/tenure-track faculty position (open rank) in the general area of space science and engineering. The primary appointment could be in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the Department of Chemical, Environmental and Materials Engineering, the Department of Industrial Engineering, the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering, or the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The University of Miami’s College of Engineering has embarked on university-wide strategic initiatives related to the University’s Roadmap to the Next Century. The search is open to all areas of space science and engineering. Applications combining advanced modeling techniques and experiments are of particular interest. Some areas of emphasis include but not limited to: aerodynamics, propulsion, flow control, experimental fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, energy transfer process, sustainable energy, system control and dynamics, structure aerodynamics, satellite systems, satellite data interpretation, and space sciences and technologies. The college is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. The successful candidate is expected to be able to contribute to one of the CoE initiatives, the Miami Engineering Autonomous Mobility Initiative (MEAMI) or other relevant areas.
The successful candidate should have an earned Ph.D. in a relevant engineering or science discipline with demonstrated records or potentials to establish a strong and sustaining research program. The selected candidate will be expected to teach classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Senior faculty will be expected to play a leadership role within his/her department, and to promote interdisciplinary research throughout the University in the field of space science and engineering.
Initial screening of the applications will begin immediately, with hires expected for Fall 2024. But applications will be received until the position is filled with an initial priority date of December 15, 2023.
