Control Systems Faculty - Georgia Institute of Technology

Faculty Position in Control Systems


The School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, invites nominations and applications for a faculty position in the areas of flight dynamics, dynamical systems, control theory, information science, and the interactions between these fields beginning August 2018.   All ranks will be considered, but senior level appointments will reserved for exceptional candidates having a demonstrated superior research and teaching record. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications. 

While all related areas of research in dynamical systems and control will be considered, candidates with a research agenda most closely aligned with aerospace applications are highly desirable.

Candidates are required to have a doctorate in Aerospace Engineering or a closely related field. The successful transdisciplinary candidates will have an outstanding research record and will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate courses, supervise graduate students, and interact with the faculty on the development of a strong externally funded research program. 

The School of Aerospace Engineering presently has 36 full-time faculty members and its undergraduate and graduate programs are ranked among the top aerospace engineering programs in the nation. The research interests of the faculty cover a broad spectrum of aerospace engineering including gas dynamics, propulsion, combustion, aerodynamics, structural mechanics, flight dynamics, and control.
