Aerodynamics and Fluid Mechanics Faculty Sought


Prof. Walker with students working on an experiment in the High Powered ELectric Propulsion Lab

The Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology  invites nominations and applications for a faculty position in aerodynamics and fluid mechanics. Applicants with experimental expertise are particularly encouraged. The AE School works closely with Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), the applied research arm of Georgia Tech in this area. Applications are sought from candidates working anywhere in the entire speed range from subsonic to hypersonic. The AE School and GTRI currently have several subsonic and supersonic wind tunnels and combustors, as well as significant potential for hypersonic capabilities, with preheated, high pressure, high flow, high storage air capabilities. Candidates at all ranks will be considered.

Successful candidates will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate courses; supervise graduate students; interact collaboratively with faculty in teaching, research, and service; and develop a strong, independent, externally funded research program. An earned doctorate in aerospace engineering or a related field is required at the time of hire, and successful candidates will have outstanding records of research accomplishments.

Applicants should submit a cover letter with a clear specification of areas of interest, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and contact information for four professional references preferably in one pdf file to and reference job ID "AERO18” in the subject line by Jan. 21, 2019 to receive full consideration. Information about the AE School can be found at
