Chair (W3) in a Topic within Aerospace Engineering Technical University Dresden, Institute of Aerospace Engineering at the Faculty of Mechanical Science and Engineering Germany

The Institute of Aerospace Engineering at the Faculty of Mechanical Science and Engineering
seeks to fill the

Chair (W3) in a Topic within Aerospace Engineering

from 01 April 2020.

The Institute of Aerospace Engineering presently consists of the Chair of Aircraft Engineering and
the Chair of Space Systems as well as a work group for experimental aerodynamics with a lowspeed wind tunnel facility. Current research areas are optimisation of airplanes, damage-tolerant
and morphing airplane structures, satellite technologies and space propulsion, as well as experimental investigations of airplanes and buildings in wind tunnels.

The holder of the position shall develop innovative teaching concepts within the mechanical engineering study programme and its aerospace engineering curriculum in the area of flight systems
and autonomous flight systems. Changes are possible depending on the candidate’s area of expertise. In addition, teaching in complementary study programmes such as mechatronics or
transport engineering shall be offered if necessary. A willingness and ability to conduct classes in
English is expected. The duties include participation in academic selfadministration. In addition to
the Institute of Aerospace Engineering, the cross-faculty profile "Innovative Systems of Aerospace
Engineering" is also to be strengthened. Collaboration with other Chairs in the main topic is expressly desired.
We are seeking for a candidate with an outstanding international scientific track record, who complements and strengthens our research areas in order to continue the establishment of our institute as a leading institution with high visibility. Possible research areas are autonomous aerospace
systems, flight systems, aerospace acoustics or space/satellite applications. Other topics are welcome; we aim to focus on the excellence of the candidate as well as how the proposed research
fits within and complements the structure of our institute. Utilization of the existing wind tunnel
facility would be an advantage. Extensive experience in funding acquisition, managing of research
contracts and group leadership is required. Pedagogical and educational skills are essential.
