The SIBLEY SCHOOL OF MECHANICAL AND AEROSPACE ENGINEERING AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY, Ithaca, NY invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in the areas of design and manufacturing. Candidates must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field and are expected to establish an outstanding, well-funded research program, and to contribute substantially to both undergraduate and graduate instruction in the areas of design and/or manufacturing. Applicants at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor are preferred. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
We seek outstanding individuals engaged in research at the frontier of design and/or manufacturing of engineered systems and products. Areas of interest include design using programmable and smart materials (e.g. stretchable electronics, mechanical metamaterials); design automation; hardware aspects of virtual/augmented/mixed reality interfaces; hardware aspects of haptics; engineered ecosystems; sustainable design; additive manufacturing of structural or functional components; manufacturing of advanced and multifunctional material systems; and hardware aspects of brain-computer interfaces. A focus on first principles approaches to engineering design should be clear in the candidate's publication record, and a plan for multidisciplinary research that leverages the breadth of opportunities in the Sibley School and at Cornell should be apparent in the candidate's research statement. Applicants should have strong depth and their research should build upon one or more of the Sibley School's disciplines, including in design & manufacturing, solid mechanics and materials, robotics, fluid dynamics and thermal systems, and dynamics and control.
Cornell University fosters interdisciplinary research and an atmosphere of cooperation through its Centers and Field system. Faculty in Design and Manufacturing will have outstanding opportunities to collaborate with faculty and researchers, and work with graduate students, in many other Fields: Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Material Science, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, Computer Science, etc. and Centers/Facilities: Cornell Center for Materials Research and the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility.
The Sibley School and the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace diversity and seek candidates who will foster a climate that attracts students of all races, nationalities and genders. We strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented groups in Engineering to apply. Cornell University seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, has a Dual Career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist with dual career searches.
In 1865, Ezra Cornell founded an institution "where any person can find instruction in any study." From the beginning, all students were welcome, regardless of race, gender, ideology, or socioeconomic status. Today, we invite you to join our talented and diverse students and accessible faculty who, together, form a living and learning community unmatched in its breadth of opportunities.Cornell Uni...versity's college, schools, and other academic units offer more than 4,000 courses, 70 undergraduate majors, 93 graduate fields of study, undergraduate and advanced degrees, and continuing education and outreach programs.
