The Department of Aerospace Engineering at Middle East Technical University (Northern Cyprus Campus) invites applications for faculty positions to begin in 2018. Topics of interest include advanced structures and materials, aeroelasticity, aerodynamics, flight mechanics and control, advanced propulsion systems, and space applications. Outstanding candidates in other synergistic areas will be considered as well. Even though the emphasis is preferably on individuals at the Assistant Professor level, the other ranks will also be considered.

Candidates must have earned a Ph. D. in Aerospace, Mechanical or a closely related Science/Engineering field.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop and maintain an internationally recognized research program in Aerospace Engineering, to actively contribute to the core undergraduate teaching missions of Aerospace Engineering, and to engage in department, institute and professional service activities.

Aerospace Engineering is growing rapidly with many new faculty positions anticipated in the next five years. Our research addresses some of the world’s most pressing technological challenges; from energy and sustainable development to materials, aerodynamics, propulsion, controls, and space applications. AE faculty has access to world-class research facilities and an atmosphere that promotes interdisciplinary collaboration that includes the METU Center of Wind Energy hosted at Aerospace Engineering Department in Ankara. The world class research facilities include laboratories of advanced structural and materials, composite material characterization, aerodynamics, propulsion, control and the supercomputer for high performance computing.
