AE UAS Faculty: Defining New Horizons

The School of AE is searching for a tenure-track faculty member at the assistant or associate professor level to continue current and develop new research thrusts in experimental unmanned aerial systems (UAS), with a particular emphasis on software and hardware integration.

The successful candidate will be expected to pursue collaborations with diverse centers and laboratories across the Georgia Tech campus, including robotics and vertical lift. Serious candidates should have a strong interest in flight systems research with a proven record, preferably on avionics integration and testing, UAS development (including testbeds), software and hardware integration, and flight testing. In conjunction with this research, the faculty member will lead, mentor, and support an established team of graduate students and research engineers in the Georgia Tech UAV Research Facility (UAVRF). The faculty member will also develop and/or teach related undergraduate and graduate courses.

Application packages should include a cover letter clearly stating the faculty position(s) being sought, a curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and contact information for four professional references. The search committee requests that application packages be submitted in one pdf file to ae-facsearch@aerospace.gatech.edu. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. The start date is negotiable, but the anticipated start is as early as January 2018 or June 2018.

Faculty candidates are encouraged to find out more about the Daniel Guggenheim School's research program, its labs and research collaborations, and its current academic faculty.

Georgia Tech is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. Nominations and applications of qualified members of under-represented groups are welcome.
