Faculty Positions in the Department of Aerospace Engineering

Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach

The Department invites applications for several tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor. Successful applicants should demonstrate a potential to establish and grow a strong externally funded research program and to excel at teaching and mentoring graduate and undergraduate students. The preferred areas of expertise are astronautics & space applications, hypersonics & rocket propulsion, experimental aerodynamics as well as composites & additive manufacturing. In addition, the department is looking for potential faculty (possibly non-tenure track-teaching positions) interested in teaching design, i.e. spacecraft, rocket engine, airplane, and jet engine design. However, applicants in all areas of Aerospace Engineering will be considered.

Current research thrust areas of the Department include: astrodynamics, guidance, navigation and control, unmanned and autonomous robotic systems, urban air mobility, computational fluid dynamics, aeroacoustics, rotorcraft aerodynamics, flow control, alternative propulsion, air-breathing hypersonic and rocket propulsion, aeroelasticity, composites, nanomaterials, smart materials, structural health monitoring, computational structural mechanics, and design optimization.

The Aerospace Engineering Department, the largest in the nation with an enrollment of over 2,000 full-time students, offers Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. degrees, including 42 students in the PhD program. The undergraduate program is currently ranked #5 (tied) and the graduate program is ranked #25 (tied) by the U.S. News and World Report. To achieve national prominence, the Department has launched an ambitious agenda focused on expanding the graduate programs, facilities, recruiting talented faculty, and building research infrastructure and capabilities, In support of this agenda, the University has invested in a new 50,000 square foot engineering building, the John Mica Engineering and Aerospace Innovation Complex (MicaPlex), housing several research laboratories ( https://erau.edu/research-park/micaplex/labs ) a state-of-the-art subsonic wind tunnel, and a new Flight Research Center facility, all as part of a Research Park with incubator space and growing number of industry creating an echo system to support innovation and entrepreneurship.

Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), the world’s largest, fully accredited university specializing in aviation and aerospace, offers more than 70 Baccalaureate, Master, and Ph.D. degree programs in Arts & Sciences, Aviation, Business, and Engineering. ERAU’s eastern campus is located at Daytona Beach and serves a diverse student body of approximately 7,500 students.


Candidates should have an earned Doctorate in Aerospace Engineering or a closely related field.
