The Opportunity:

The department of Aerospace Engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona invites applicants for Assistant and Associate Professor positions with start dates of January or August 2023. The department is especially interested in candidates with backgrounds and experience in spacecraft systems and design, but experience in all areas of astronautical engineering will be considered .

The department seeks candidates with strong interests in engineering education, a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning, an ability to perform research, and dedication to service and collegiality. Applicants should share the department’s commitment to an inclusive, inviting, and collaborative community. We strongly encourage individuals from populations who are traditionally underrepresented and underserved in STEM – women, Blacks, Latinx, Native Americans, persons with disabilities and persons of all gender identities and/or sexual orientation – to apply.

Successful candidates will be expected to teach undergraduate courses, oversee laboratory experiments, collaborate with students on independent research, and supervise student projects. An earned doctorate in Aerospace Engineering or similar degree along with related industry and academic experience is highly desired; however, candidates with a master’s degree and 10+ years of industry experience are strongly encouraged to apply.

A complete application package should consist of: (1) a cover letter including the date of availability, (2) a curriculum vita including contact information for at least three professional references, (3) a statement of teaching philosophy including a list of courses the candidate would like to teach or develop, and (4) a statement describing the candidate’s professional goals.
