Faculty Positions

The College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado (CU) Boulder seeks applications for multiple tenure-track positions, including open-rank posts in autonomous systems and hypersonics. We seek candidates who are interested in or have demonstrated effectiveness in teaching, mentoring and inspiring diverse students of all races, nationalities and genders, including first-generation college undergraduates. Applicants must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field and have demonstrated an ability or show promise and interest in conducting innovative research and developing excellent teaching practices while mentoring students and collaborating with faculty. For more information and to apply, please visit https://jobs.colorado.edu/.

  1. Open Faculty Positions in Hypersonics - The Ann and H.J. Smead Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder is currently seeking applications for two tenure track faculty positions in the area of Hypersonics. These positions are part of the long-term growth plans for the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS), and we are especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and service, to the diversity and excellence of our academic community. The positions are open at all levels, with emphasis on applicants at the Assistant Professor level. We are interested in candidates with original and promising research within the broad area of hypersonics including not only foundational areas such as high-speed and high-temperature fluid dynamics, associated chemical reactions, and thermal/structural response; also more applied areas such as atmospheric entry, ablation, propulsion, and control of hypersonic vehicles within the atmosphere. (Apply by November 15, 2018.)

  2. Open Faculty Positions in Autonomous Systems - The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Colorado, Boulder is currently seeking applications for a tenure track faculty position in the area of autonomous systems. This position is part of the long-term growth plans for the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS), and supports the new Autonomous Systems Interdisciplinary Research Theme. We are especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and service, to the diversity and excellence of our academic community. The position is open at all levels, with emphasis on applicants at the Assistant Professor level. We are interested in candidates who can complement current expertise and contribute to the Autonomous Systems Interdisciplinary Research Theme through fundamental disciplinary autonomy research and/or application-specific use of autonomous system technology. (Apply by November 15, 2018.)

Aerospace Engineering Systems Visiting Scholar

The Aerospace Engineering Systems Visiting Scholar program is an annual opportunity established to bring exceptional engineering experts to share their work and interact with AES faculty, particularly those faculty working in the Aerospace Engineering Systems focus area within our department. The position is open to individuals with aerospace research interests in control and vehicle systems, fluid dynamics, structures and materials, and computational sciences. The Visiting Scholar may be an established faculty member or a rising young investigator who has interest in collaboration with department faculty. It is envisioned that the Visiting Scholar will come to campus for a period of several weeks to several months, possibly in connection with a sabbatical period. The position will provide funding support for travel, lodging, and per diem expenses. Although the Visiting Scholar is nominally hosted during the summer, Fall or Spring semester visits are possible.

Persons interested in the Visiting Scholar position should provide a CV and short Statement of Interest to the Visiting Scholar Committee Chair, Prof. Nisar Ahmed (nisar.ahmed@colorado.edu). Visiting Scholars are selected on a rolling basis.
