Tenure-Track Faculty Position

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Cambridge, MA

 

The MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions with a start date of 1 July 2020 or a mutually agreeable date thereafter. The department is conducting a search for exceptional candidates in any discipline related to aerospace engineering, broadly defined, though particular interests are in: the interaction of humans and autonomy, environmental monitoring and mitigation, and human exploration of space.

 

We are seeking highly qualified candidates with a commitment to research and education. Faculty duties include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, advising students, conducting original scholarly research, developing course materials at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and serving the Institute and the profession.

 

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in a field related to aerospace engineering or another relevant science or engineering field by the beginning of employment. The search is for candidates to be hired at the assistant professor level; under special circumstances, however, a senior faculty appointment is possible. 

 

Applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a 2–3 page statement of research and teaching interests and goals, and names and contact information of at least three individuals who will provide letters of recommendation. Applicants with backgrounds outside aerospace should describe how a substantial part of their work will apply to aerospace problems. Applications must be submitted as a pdf at: https://school-of-engineering-faculty-search.mit.edu/aeroastro/register.tcl. Letters of recommendation must be submitted directly by the recommenders at https://school-ofengineering-faculty-search.mit.edu/letters. To ensure full consideration, complete applications should be received by December 1st 2019. Applications will be considered complete only when both the applicant materials and at least three letters of recommendations are received. 

 

MIT is building a diverse faculty and strongly encourages applications from female and minority candidates.
