Position Description:    

The Thomas Lord Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science in the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University invites applicants for multiple tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty positions with research interests in aerospace engineering broadly. Topics include, but are not limited to autonomous/robotic aerospace vehicles and systems, dynamics of fluids, large-scale flow instabilities, unsteady aerodynamics and aeroelasticity, turbulence, flow control using autonomous materials and meta-materials, energy-efficient propulsion and aircraft systems, and computational fluid dynamics.

Candidates should be dedicated to research and teaching that expands scientific boundaries in service to society and to educating a broad and diverse group of students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Successful candidates are expected to establish a vibrant research program, obtain competitive external research funding, and participate actively in teaching. We seek faculty members committed to building a collaborative community that fosters diversity, inclusion, and community, and we particularly encourage women and underrepresented applicants to apply for these faculty positions.

Faculty in the department work in diverse research areas, including aerodynamics and aeroelasticity, autonomous systems, biomechanics and biomaterials, computational modeling, artificial intelligence, energy systems, materials, and soft matter, and nanoscale materials. More information on research and teaching in the Thomas Lord Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science can be found at https://mems.duke.edu.

Applicants should have an earned doctorate in Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering, Robotics, or a related field. Applicants must apply through Academic Jobs Online https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/22948. Review of applications will begin immediately; applications received by December 15, 2022, will receive priority attention.

Duke University and the Pratt School of Engineering are strongly committed to advancing equity, inclusion, diversity, and community throughout our research, teaching, and service activities. We aspire to create a community built on collaboration, innovation, creativity, and belonging. Our collective success depends on the collegial exchange of ideas - an exchange that is best when the rich diversity of our perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences flourishes. To achieve this exchange, it is essential that all members of the community feel valued and welcome, that the contributions of all individuals are respected, and that all voices are heard. All members of our community are expected to uphold these values, and we seek to hire faculty who are passionate about working to increase the participation and success of individuals from groups underrepresented in engineering and science.
