Tenure-track Faculty Position in Aerospace Engineering

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The UC Irvine Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2018. We seek an individual who will strengthen our aerospace engineering research and educational programs. Applicants from all areas of aerospace engineering are welcome; of particular interest are applicants with expertise in aerodynamics, structures and/or system optimization, who are applying this expertise to design the next generation of aerospace vehicles.

Associate Specialist in Mechanical Metamaterials

Commensurate upon experience

The Architected Materials Lab at UC Irvine is currently accepting applications for an associate specialist position. The research will focus on mechanical modeling of nano-architected materials, with emphasis on high strain rate response. We are seeking an individual with a strong background in computational solid mechanics – in particular finite elements analysis. Experience with topology optimization is highly desirable. A Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, materials science, physics, or a related field is required.
