The Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure track faculty position at the Assistant or untenured Associate Professor level.
Research advances in the fundamental areas of aerospace engineering are critical for future air and space transportation systems that will provide efficiency, safety, and security, while protecting the environment. We are seeking exceptional applicants who will develop a program of high-impact research, contribute to an innovative undergraduate curriculum, and develop graduate courses at the frontier of areas such as aerospace system design, autonomous vehicle technologies, and breakthroughs in aerospace propulsion concepts. We will place higher priority on the impact, originality, and promise of the candidate's work than on the particular area of specialization within Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Evidence of the ability to pursue a program of innovative research and a strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching is required.
Candidates whose research programs in Aeronautics and Astronautics will involve the development of sophisticated computational and/or mathematical methods may be considered for an appointment with an affiliation with the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering.
