Faculty Positions in Spacecraft Engineering, Cornell University

The Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty position in the field of Aerospace, with an emphasis on space and space technology. 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. Applicants at the level of Assistant Professor are a priority, but appointments at other levels will be considered. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

We seek outstanding individuals engaged in computational, theoretical, and/or experimental research in spacecraft engineering. The successful candidates will complement Cornell’s diverse, world-class capabilities including dynamics, systems, and controls (DSC) and materials in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, planetary science and astrophysics in the Department of Astronomy, Systems Engineering, and entrepreneurship.

The ideal candidate will conduct research tied to one or more of the following specific areas: in-situ resource utilization and in-space manufacturing and assembly; global navigation satellite systems (such as GPS) and CisLunar pointing, navigation and timing; robotic spacecraft autonomy, including artificial intelligence and machine learning; lunar and planetary-surface infrastructure, logistics, and operations; and spacecraft flight dynamics, control, and estimation. A key objective of this search is to build stronger connections among Cornell’s fields of Aerospace Engineering, Astronomy, and Earth & Atmospheric Sciences. Qualified candidates in all related areas are encouraged to apply.
