Faculty Search: Controls

The Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology invites nominations and applications for faculty positions 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 be 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 undergraduate and graduate programs of the Guggenheim School 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.

Application packages should include a cover letter clearly stating the faculty position(s) being sought, a curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and contact information for four professional references. The search committee requests that application packages be submitted in one pdf file to ae-facsearch@aerospace.gatech.edu.

Faculty candidates are encouraged to find out more about the Daniel Guggenheim School's research program, its labs and research collaborations, and its current academic faculty.

Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the positions are filled.

The Board of Regents policy requires federal and state background investigations, including a criminal background check. Georgia Tech is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
