The Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for three tenure-track faculty positions in the areas of structures and materials, small satellites, and bioastronautics. Applicants are especially sought with the following research interests:
- Structures and Materials: Design, modeling, fabrication, and characterization of structural and/or multi-functional materials and their integration into innovative aerospace systems; preference given to applicants with an experimental focus.
- Small Satellites: Advances in technology and application of small satellite systems; novel sensors, guidance and control, autonomy, propulsion, and communication subsystems; scientific application of small satellite systems; experience in mission design and systems integration.
- Bioastronautics: Human spaceflight including, but not limited to, human spacecraft design, test and analysis; life support systems and spacesuit technologies; space biotechnology and biomedical countermeasures for astronaut health concerns.
Although these positions are targeted at the assistant professor level, other levels will be considered for experienced candidates with outstanding credentials. Job duties include teaching, research, and service to the University and to professional communities. Applicants should show strong promise to develop a robust research program that complements the existing strengths of the department and also to excel at undergraduate and graduate teaching, and student mentoring. A Ph.D. degree in Aerospace Engineering or a related field is required.
Application materials are accepted electronically through Job Posting F01786 at https://www.jobsatcu.com. Please indicate in your cover letter which position you are interested in, and include a curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information of four references. Address the cover letter to Search Committee Chair Prof. Jeffrey M. Forbes, Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences, University of Colorado Boulder.

About the Program
Beginning in 2014, the University of Colorado Boulder joins in a collaborative partnership with the University of California and the University of Michigan to offer postdoctoral fellowship opportunities at CU-Boulder. In this program, the University of Colorado Boulder offers postdoctoral research fellowships in all academic fields, coupled with faculty mentoring, professional development and academic networking opportunities.
The University of Colorado Boulder views these postdoctoral fellowships as providing an exceptional opportunity to recruit potential new faculty to the university by offering the possibility of either a postdoc alone or a combined postdoc and tenure-track faculty appointment.
The University seeks applicants whose creative work/research, teaching and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with the potential to bring to their academic careers the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.
