The Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at The George Washington University is seeking exceptional applicants for a tenure track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, beginning as early as Fall 2020. All areas of mechanical engineering are of interest, but the areas of emphasis for this search include, but are not limited to, artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, controls, machine learning, and robotics.
The successful candidate will augment or complement existing research strengths in energy, bioinspired engineering, fluid mechanics and thermal science, materials science and mechanics, nano/microsytems, and robotics and controls. The successful candidate will also create new synergies among biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science. New faculty will join a vibrant department housed in a new $275M Science and Engineering Hall that encourages interdisciplinary efforts across science and engineering. Current research is supported by federal sources including NSF, NIH, NIST, DARPA, DOD, DOE, and a variety of industrial sources.
The George Washington University is the largest academic institution in the nation's capital. The exceptional location affords the GW community unique cultural and intellectual opportunities, with close access to many federal funding agencies, research laboratories, and one of the largest concentrations of technology companies in the nation.
A Ph.D. in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering, or a related area, by date of appointment is required. Applicants must demonstrate potential for developing a high quality research program and for attracting extramural research funding. All applicants must have demonstrated teaching excellence or potential at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
