The Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), at the University of California, San Diego, is conducting an open search for Project Scientists (non-tenured Assistant, Associate or Full level).
At UC San Diego, Project Scientists (https://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/_files/apm/apm-311.pdf ) are academic researchers who are expected to make significant and creative contributions to a research team, but are not necessarily leaders of the research team. Project scientist positions are similar to postdoctoral fellow positions, but carry more responsibilities, a higher salary, and are typically of longer duration. Project Scientists are not required to carry out independent research or develop an independent research reputation but will publish and carry out research or creative programs with supervision by faculty. University and public service are encouraged but not required, and this position does not have formal teaching responsibilities.
Research areas could include but are not limited to: Aerospace, Controls, Design, Engineering Education, Environmental, Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer, Info Storage, Mechanics & Materials, Robotics, Systems Engineering, Biomechanics, Biomaterials, Medical Devices, Combustion, Plasma & Fusion, and Renewables.
Appointments and duration vary depending on the length of the research project and availability of funding.
This ad will remain open for the duration of the academic year and fills positions based on the on-going needs in the MAE Department.
Doctorate degree (PhD) in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering, or an equivalent related field, at the time of application.
Postdoctoral or equivalent experience and commitment to independent research and funding, mentoring/training, university and community service, and to building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.
