Job Title: Fall 2023: Tenure-Track Faculty: Artificial Intelligence in Aerospace Engineering

Location of Position: Austin, Texas

Employing Institution: The University of Texas at Austin

Description of Position: The Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at The University of Texas at Austin has a tenure-track position beginning Fall 2023 in the foundations of artificial intelligence inspired by use cases in aerospace engineering. The position is expected to be filled at the assistant professor level. Exceptional candidates at the associate and full professor level may be considered.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to learning, perception, controls, optimization, statistics, uncertainty quantification, and emerging computing and sensing paradigms. Candidates are encouraged to view these areas of interest in the broadest sense in determining whether they match their research skills and interests. While the emphasis is on the quality and originality of the candidate's work and the timeliness of their research vision, a particular focus will be placed on the potential for supporting the design, analysis, development, manufacturing, certification, operation, and/or regulation of next-generation aerospace materials, components, and systems. Such systems will need to meet increasingly complex needs due to, for example, autonomy, air mobility, hypersonics, remote sensing, space domain awareness, and the impact on the environment and society.

The Department and the Cockrell School of Engineering are committed to building a diverse and inclusive environment. To this end, we are particularly interested in applicants who contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service.
