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.

The successful candidate will participate in all aspects of the Department's mission, including development of an independent, externally funded research program; teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in mechanical and aerospace engineering; supervision of graduate and undergraduate students; and service responsibilities.
