Engineering and Technology: Aerospace and Aeronautical
The Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) in Shenzhen, China invites applications for multiple tenured or tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks. We seek ambitious and creative candidates who are well versed with the fundamentals of solid mechanics or some focused areas of aerospace engineering, have the vision and capability of carrying out interdisciplinary research, and contribute to the collegial and collaborative environment of the department. Research expertise interfusing solid mechanics with other disciplines are welcome, such as multi-physics and multi-scale computational mechanics, mechanics of advanced materials, experimental solid mechanics, biomechanics, machine learning and data-driven simulations; as well as expertise in aerospace engineering, such as aerodynamics, aerostructures, propulsion, control, or orbital mechanics. Candidates with the above-mentioned expertise and working in the application aeras of aeroengines, wind turbines, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are encouraged to apply.
The successful candidates are expected to build strong and independent research, advise graduate and undergraduate students, publish in archival journals, and teach both undergraduate and graduate courses in solid mechanics and/or aerospace engineering. Senior candidates are expected to play leadership roles in research and education efforts in the department. Globally competitive salaries and attractive start-up packages will be provided to all new faculty hires.
The MAE Department was established in the end of 2015, and has graduated its first two classes of students in 2018 and 2019. The department has two undergraduate programs: Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, and Aerospace Engineering, and possesses state-certified BS, MS and PhD degree programs. The department currently has 20 tenured/tenure-track faculty members, conducting active research in the general areas of fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, computational mechanics, micro and soft materials/devices, aeroengines, aeroacoustics, and UAVs.
