Tenure Track Faculty

The Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions. All areas of aerospace and mechanical engineering will be considered; however, the department particularly encourages applications from individuals who would complement and bridge existing strengths in its five research pillars: bioengineering; computational engineering; fluid mechanics; materials, energy, & manufacturing; and robotics & controls. Strategic priorities include human health and well-being, sustainable energy, and research that intersects bioengineering with robotics/automation, manufacturing, and/or data science. The Department seeks to attract, develop, and retain excellent faculty members with strong records and future promise. The Department is especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the University’s academic community through their research, teaching, and service.

The search is aimed at the assistant professor level; however, candidates at all levels who have strong records and promise will be considered. All applicants must have an earned or pending doctorate in an appropriate discipline. Successful candidates will have demonstrated the potential to achieve an internationally distinguished record of scholarship, a diverse, externally funded research program, excellence in undergraduate and graduate education, and active service within both their research community and the university.

Candidates are invited to provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a comprehensive research plan, a statement of teaching philosophy and interests, contact information for three professional references, and a statement regarding their accomplishments, goals, and/or commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion within the academic setting. All materials should be submitted to the application website (http://apply.interfolio.com/130728). To guarantee full consideration, applications must be received by November 1, 2023; however, review of applications will continue until December 1, 2023. If you have questions regarding this position, you may contact the search chair, Professor Robert Landers (rlanders@nd.edu).

The University of Notre Dame strives for inclusive excellence. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion arises from our aspirations about the community we want to be, the educational environment we hope to provide our students, and the moral character they will develop during their time with us. It goes to the heart of our mission, to who we are and who we want to be. Our University’s core principles of diversity and inclusion commit us to 1) respect the dignity of every person, 2) build a Notre Dame community in which all can flourish, and 3) live in solidarity with all, particularly the most vulnerable. As noted above, all candidates are invited to provide a statement in their application materials explaining how they can contribute to meeting our University’s goal of inclusive excellence. Such statements might describe how the candidate’s past experiences and activities and/or future plans could advance diversity and inclusion in their field, including their education, research, and/ or service endeavors. Information about the College of Engineering’s action items for diversity, equity, and inclusion can be found here.

The University is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer; we strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, veterans, individuals with a disability, and those candidates attracted to a university with a Catholic identity.
