During the coming years the department of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion is looking to fill tenure-track faculty positions. First-class applicants are invited in the following preferred areas, as well as in all aerospace-related fields:
- Space Engineering and Astronautics
- Rocket propulsion; Jet propulsion; Combustion
- Aerodynamics and Fluid Mechanics: Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD); Experimentalists in Unsteady Aerodynamics and Compressible Aerodynamics
- Advanced Aerospace Structures and Materials: Fracture Mechanics and Structural Health Monitoring; Modern Materials for Aerospace Applications; Flexible Space Structures; Structural Dynamics
- Multi-Disciplinary Optimization
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, general engineering, or an allied field, with a proven record of research excellence. Candidates at all ranks will be considered, but applicants for junior faculty positions are particularly encouraged.
The department of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion is the only one of its kind in Israel. Its vision is to be an aeronautics and astronautics academic hub, of world class, dedicated to creation, expansion and dissemination of ideas and knowledge in aerospace sciences and engineering. With a mission to educate scientific and technological leadership, and conduct cutting-edge research, for the advancement of aerospace sciences and the national aerospace engineering industry, the department currently has about 400 undergraduate students and 170 graduate students. There are currently 27 full-time faculty members and 20 adjunct lecturers from industry.
Candidates will be expected to conduct independent world-class research, supervise graduate students (and postdoctoral researchers), teach undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, and acquire extramural research funding.
Review of applications will be ongoing until available positions are filled. Applications, consisting of a cover letter, curriculum vitae and list of publications, research statement, teaching statement, and names and addresses (including email addresses) of at least five references should be submitted to:
