Professor of the Practice Position in Space Systems Engineering Cornell University

The SYSTEMS ENGINEERING program and the SIBLEY SCHOOL OF MECHANICAL AND AEROSPACE ENGINEERING at Cornell University invite applications for a Professor of the Practice Position in the area of Space Systems Engineering. The Systems Engineering Program at Cornell is an interdisciplinary collaboration between multiple departments in the College of Engineering. The student body includes working professionals with significant systems engineering experience as well as on-campus Masters and PhD students. Distance learning, student projects and research in systems engineering are prevalent.

We seek a faculty member who can support systems engineering and space technology educational efforts at Cornell, including developing and teaching courses for both on-campus and professional distance-learning students; growing relationships with industry, including student projects; and facilitating connections between Systems Engineering and other departments. Space Systems is of particular interest, including systems architecture, model-based systems engineering, systems analysis and optimization, human-centered systems, or other areas of interest to the Systems Engineering program.

Applicants should have extensive space systems engineering experience, must exhibit strong promise for excellence in developing courses and in teaching, and should have an advanced degree in a related field (doctorate preferred). Depending on qualifications, we can hire at the rank of Professor of Practice, Senior Lecturer or Lecturer. Although this is intended to be a full-time position, alternative arrangements may be considered. This is a non-tenure track position in the Systems Engineering program at the Ithaca campus, renewable every three to five years.

The Systems Engineering program, Sibley School, and the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace diversity and seek candidates who will foster a climate that attracts students of all races, nationalities and genders. We strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented groups in Engineering to apply.
