Assistant Professor – Full-time, tenure-track
The Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty position. We are primarily focused on hires at the Assistant Professor rank, although individuals at higher ranks with exceptional credentials may be considered. We seek faculty members who commit to excellence in graduate and undergraduate education, will develop impactful, productive and novel research programs, and will contribute to the department’s goal of eliminating systemic racism and sexism by embracing our culture of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). Candidates will be expected to complement existing research areas in the Department and across campus, and to assume a leadership position in aerospace related research.
Applicants should have earned a doctoral degree in Aerospace Engineering or a related field by the start date. 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 University of Michigan Department of Aerospace Engineering 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.
Please prepare an application containing a cover letter, your curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, three representative publications, and the names and contact information of five references. We request that applicants include a statement of their experience and vision on supporting diversity, equity and inclusion.
Please submit your application to the attention of Dr. Venkat Raman, Chair of the search committee at apply.interfolio.com/94431
