The AE Department at the Technion is dedicated to the creation, expansion, and dissemination of ideas and knowledge in the aerospace sciences, and is committed to fostering interdisciplinary research that can address the grand challenges facing our society.

Founded in 1954, the AE Department at the Technion is the only academic entity in Israel dedicated to cutting-edge research and education in the aerospace sciences. Enrolling around 400 undergraduate and 150 graduate students, the department serves a strategic role for the nation, maintaining Israel’s position as a leader in the global aerospace industry. The AE Department’s research and educational achievements are also recognized globally, with the department currently ranked 16th in the world according to the 2020 Shanghai Ranking.

The department seeks individuals with outstanding potential for research achievements, who will provide inspiration to students and other faculty members, contribute proactively to both undergraduate and graduate level teaching, and add to the professional diversity of the academic community. Exceptional candidates will be considered for all technical areas and at all ranks. Of particular interest are tenure-track applicants at the lecturer and assistant professor ranks in the following scientific disciplines:

  • Multi-disciplinary Design & Optimization
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (including reacting flows)
  • Computational Solid Mechanics
  • Structures and Structural Dynamics
  • Manufacturing Technologies
  • Orbital Mechanics and Attitude Dynamics
  • Aerodynamics/Hydrodynamics and Fluid Mechanics (including multiphase flows)
  • Laser Diagnostics for High-speed or Reacting Flows
  • Guidance, Navigation, & Control, and Robotics
    Faculty position in the area of guidance, navigation, and control
