The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Syracuse University seeks to fill a faculty position in the broad area of controls, robotics and dynamics at the rank of tenure-track assistant professor. Applications are invited in all topics in this area, particularly those that complement current research activities in the department and the college. These research activities include, but are not limited to, bio-inspired and bio-mimetic systems; human-machine interactions; guidance, navigation and control of unmanned systems; intelligent control of energy and environmental systems; networked control systems; state estimation and sensor fusion; spacecraft dynamics and control; and additive manufacturing and advanced materials processes. The department has close ties with other departments and on-campus multidisciplinary centers, including the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems (SyracuseCoE), the Center for Advanced Systems and Engineering (CASE), Syracuse Biomaterials Institute (SBI) and Green Data Center. Researchers working at these centers are involved in several federally funded projects on topics that include unmanned systems, biomimetic systems, intelligent building control, data fusion and mining, communication systems and networks. In addition, New York state opportunities include the recent investment of $250 million for unmanned systems and cross-connected platforms in the central New York state region as part of the Upstate Revitalization Initiative, and the New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) funding opportunities to develop smart building technologies.
Syracuse University is a place where talent, desire, and opportunity thrive. In 12 different schools and colleges that span the liberal arts and professional disciplines, students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds come together to learn, create, and break boundaries.
The University is also a vital part of the community, providing services as well as being a leader in employee benefi...ts, work-life and organizational development, training, student employment, staff relations, and workforce diversity.
Syracuse itself is located at the crossroads of New York State, and offers a lush landscape of seasons. From fun-filled summers in the Finger Lakes to snowy winters that thrill outdoor sports enthusiasts, the area truly has something for everyone.
