The Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) at Boston University invites applicants for a tenure track faculty position beginning Fall 2015 at the Assistant Professor level in Space Technology, and its Commercial, Scientific, and Societal Applications.  Possible areas of focus include small satellites, sensors and instrumentation, spaceflight control, robotics, vehicle design, and space communications.   The university seeks to build upon its traditional strengths in Space Science through the development of a synergistic technology program in the College of Engineering.   The selected candidate will have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of faculty through BU’s interdisciplinary Center for Space Physics (CSP).   A joint appointment with the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is possible depending on background and interests.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is multi-disciplinary with strong research programs in Robotics, MEMs and Nanotechnology, Biomechanics, Thermo-fluid Sciences and Energy, Acoustics (including bioacoustics and ultrasound), and related Materials.  The department is further strengthened by its affiliation with the Photonics Center, the Division of Materials Science and Engineering, The Division of Systems Engineering, the Fraunhofer USA Center for Manufacturing Innovation, and the CSP.  Both the Department and College are working to implement ambitious ten-year plans, in line with Boston University’s commitment to becoming a top tier research university, that envision substantial growth in the coming years.  The Boston area offers a thriving research and educational environment, and the selected candidate will benefit from the many opportunities for collaboration with local industry, labs, and universities.

Interested candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in a relevant field of engineering or applied science, and should have the ability to develop and sustain a funded research program. The applicant should be able to teach courses in the graduate and undergraduate programs in Mechanical Engineering or related courses in the College of Engineering.  Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.
