We seek candidates working on advanced aspects of aerospace propulsion systems, including combustion dynamics at high-pressure, multiphase and trans/super-critical conditions relevant to future propulsion systems, air-breathing engines, chemical rockets, ion propulsion, power generation and conversion for aerospace vehicles, and the application of aerospace science and technology to terrestrial energy devices. Strong experimental skills are preferred, although candidates with computational and analytical profiles will also be considered. The required job duties include developing an excellent research program, teaching of university students, and service activities. As such, successful faculty candidates will demonstrate potential for teaching excellence and the highest standards of scholarship and professional activity in their research area. In addition, preferred candidates will have demonstrated accomplishments in areas contributing to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and have a desire to participate in the School's diversity initiatives (http://www.jacobsschool.ucsd.edu/diversity/).
A Ph.D. degree (or advanced to candidacy) is required in the area of Engineering or a related discipline. We especially welcome candidates who have contributed to programs that increase the access and success of underrepresented students or faculty in engineering and who are committed to, and experienced in, building an excellent and diverse academic environment.
