Assistant Professor for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering- Cyber-Physical System - Syracuse University

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Syracuse University invites applications for a faculty position at the rank of tenure-track assistant professor. Applications in all subject areas of mechanical and aerospace engineering will be considered, particularly those with primary research interests in engineered systems that seamlessly integrate computational algorithms and physical components (cyber-physical systems).

The department has close ties with other departments and on-campus multidisciplinary centers, including the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems (SyracuseCoE), the Center for Advanced Systems and Engineering (CASE), Syracuse Biomaterials Institute (SBI) and Green Data Center. Researchers in the departments across Syracuse University and these centers are involved in several federally-funded projects on topics that include unmanned systems, biomimetic systems, building energy and environmental systems, green infrastructure, data fusion and mining, communication systems and networks. In addition, New York state opportunities include the recent investment of $250 million for unmanned systems and cross-connected platforms in the central New York state region as part of the Upstate Revitalization Initiative, and the New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) funding opportunities to develop smart building technologies.
