    The SIBLEY SCHOOL OF MECHANICAL AND AEROSPACE ENGINEERING AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY, Ithaca, New York invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Space Systems Engineering.

    The Systems Engineering Program at Cornell is an interdisciplinary collaboration between multiple departments in the College of Engineering. The student body includes working professionals with significant systems engineering experience as well as on-campus Masters and PhD students; distance learning, student projects and research in systems engineering are prevalent. 

    We seek outstanding individuals engaged in computational, theoretical and/or experimental research in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, with an interest in building strong ties to Systems Engineering.  Space Systems is of particular interest, including systems architecture, model-based systems engineering, systems analysis and optimization, human-centered systems, or other areas of interest to the Systems Engineering program.

    Candidates must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field and are expected to establish an outstanding, funded research program as well as to contribute fully to both undergraduate and graduate instruction, and advise PhD students in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, and Systems Engineering fields.   Applicants at the level of Assistant Professor are preferred, but appointments at the Associate Professor level will be considered.  Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

    Cornell University fosters interdisciplinary research and an atmosphere of cooperation through its Centers and Field system. Faculty hired in this search will have outstanding opportunities to interact with a number of programs across the university, including the Carl Sagan Institute, the Center for Radiophysics and Space Research, Cornell Center for Astrophysics and Planetary Science, the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, the Cornell Center for Materials Research, the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source, Center for Transportation, Environment, and Community Health (CTECH), and the Space Systems Design Studio.

    The Sibley School and the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace diversity and seek candidates who will foster a climate that attracts students of all races, nationalities and genders.  We strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented groups in Engineering to apply.  Cornell University seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, has a Dual Career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist with dual career searches. 

    Please submit an application on line at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/12053.  Applications should include the cover sheet, a complete resume, a statement of research and teaching interests and experiences, the names of three references, and up to three publications.  All applications received by December 15, 2018 will receive full consideration this academic year.  Applications will be evaluated on an ongoing basis until the position is filled.

    Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage.
    We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans,
    and Individuals with Disabilities.
