Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Faculty Position in Aerospace Engineering.

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position in Aerospace Engineering. The MAE Department at UC Davis is home to the only UC aerospace engineering program in northern California, with research emphasis on computational and experimental aero/fluid/thermal/structural dynamics, aircraft/spacecraft dynamics and control, composite structures, and propulsion. MAE also has a long-standing strength in aerospace system design, with research in improved interactions of humans with complex aerospace systems (both aircraft and space vehicles) receiving significant attention by industry and federal agencies such as NASA, FAA, and NTSB. The new position is expected to strengthen the Department’s existing efforts in the areas of applied fluid/aerodynamics and/or spacecraft engineering/astronautics through innovative and collaborative research and teaching.

To be considered, applicants must have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering or a related field. Applicants must be able to teach and develop undergraduate and graduate courses in mechanical and/or aerospace engineering. Candidates whose research interests complement, yet clearly extend existing research strengths are particularly encouraged to apply.

Apply online and include these required materials: a CV, research and teaching statements, and names and contact information of at least five references via this link:

Inquiries should be directed to:
Prof. C.P. (Case) van Dam
Aerospace Search Committee Chair
Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
University of California, Davis
One Shields Avenue
Davis, CA 95616

The position is open until filled, but to ensure full consideration, applications must be received by October 31, 2014. UC Davis is an affirmative action/equal employment opportunity employer, is an NSF ADVANCE institution, and is dedicated to recruiting a diverse faculty community. UC Davis welcomes all qualified applicants to apply, including women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
