The Department of Aerospace Engineering at The University of Michigan invites applications for multiple tenure-track/tenured faculty positions at all ranks. We seek faculty candidates who embrace a culture of excellence and inclusion, are committed to graduate and undergraduate education, and will develop innovative research programs. While particular research areas of interest include hypersonics, (space) robotics and data sciences, we welcome well-qualified candidates in any area of relevance to Aerospace Engineering. The department maintains a strong interdisciplinary research culture and encourages collaborations with other engineering departments, the Robotics Institute, and the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS).
We celebrated our 100th anniversary in the Aerospace Engineering Department in 2014, and our undergraduate and graduate programs have continuously been among the very best in the U.S. Our faculty research expertise covers a broad spectrum of topics including computational science, multi-physics modeling and simulation, aerostructures, smart structures and materials, flight dynamics and control, autonomous systems, avionics and software systems, multidisciplinary design optimization, propulsion, combustion, and sustainable energy, with a mix of air and space applications. More information about our department can be found at aero.engin.umich.edu. Applicants should have earned a doctoral degree in Aerospace Engineering or a related field. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in all aspects of the department’s mission, including the development of a high impact externally funded research program, the teaching of undergraduate and graduate courses, and the supervision of graduate students. The UM Aerospace Department is committed to a diverse cohort of students, staff and faculty, and encourages applications from women and underrepresented minority candidates, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and people from other underrepresented groups.
