Faculty Position Announcements
The George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology is considering applicants for up to six tenure-track faculty positions at the levels of Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor. Applications will be entertained in any of the School’s research areas with an emphasis on multidisciplinary activities in energy, health, transportation, environment, mechanics, materials, manufacturing and security. A Ph.D. or equivalent qualification is required. Those applying for Associate and Full Professor positions should have established records in research that demonstrates nationally and internationally recognized expertise. Industrial experience is desirable, but not required. Each position requires a balance of undergraduate teaching, graduate teaching, and research.
At present we do not know how many tenure-track positions we will be allocated but anticipate the need to fill several openings.

Acoustics and Dynamics
The Acoustics and Dynamics Research Area Group is seeking excellent candidates in all areas of acoustics, wave propagation, vibrations, and dynamics. In particular, we are interested in exploring innovative uses of acoustics in medical applications, such as multi-wave imaging, combining ultrasound with optics and MRI, tissue characterization utilizing shear waves and nonlinearities, and the use of ultrasound for targeted drug delivery and for therapeutics applications.
Automation & Mechatronics
The Automation and Mechatronics Research Area Group is seeking highly qualified candidates with interdisciplinary interests to complement our educational and research activities within the broad areas of robotics, automation, and control systems both in theory and applications. In particular, we are interested in individuals with expertise in biomedical robotics, health monitoring, fluid power applications, and automotive systems.
The Bioengineering Research Area Group is seeking candidates at the assistant professor rank to complement the existing team of faculty within the School working in the areas of cardiovascular biomechanics, orthopaedic biomechanics, cellular engineering, design of devices/instrumentation, bioheat/mass transfer, biomanufacturing, and tissue engineering. Candidates would be expected to take advantage of the unique interdisciplinary research environment provided by the Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience and the Georgia Tech/Emory Collaboration on Regenerative Engineering and Medicine.
Computer-Aided Engineering & Design
The Computer-Aided Engineering & Design Research Area Group is seeking applicants for tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks in the areas of design theory and methodology, model-based systems engineering, design informatics, biologically inspired design, design for the life cycle, and integrated systems design. Applicants with specializations in the design of automotive, energy, and healthcare/biomedical systems as well as other emerging technologies are also of interest.
The Fluid Mechanics Research Area Group is seeking applicants for tenure track positions in the area of fluid mechanics. The ideal candidate should have a background in fundamental fluid mechanics and interests in problems of current relevance. Areas of particular application interest are: complex fluids; energy; and biological systems. Duties include teaching, service, and the establishment of an externally sponsored research program. Rank is open but preference will be given to hiring at the assistant professor level.
Heat Transfer, Combustion & Energy Systems
The Heat Transfer and Energy Systems Research Area Group is seeking candidates to complement and collaborate with existing faculty within the school on a variety of heat transfer and energy related research topics. Candidates should have expertise in combustion-based energy conversion devices/engines with some experience in computational modeling. In addition, we seek candidates in the area of energy systems with a focus on developing and utilizing thermal novel thermal energy storage methods, or low temperature/cryogenic energy systems and heat transfer. Candidates would be expected to take advantage of the unique interdisciplinary research environment provided by the department as well as several research centers and initiatives on campus.
The Manufacturing Research Area Group seeking nomination and applications for candidates who perform theoretical- and experimental-based research in manufacturing processes and systems in the broad areas of novel materials (nano, polymers, composites, ceramics, hard alloys), energy and solar, biomedical, flexible electronics and micro-electronics packaging.
Mechanics of Materials
The Mechanics of Materials Research Group is seeking potential faculty with strong background in applied mechanics working in the following areas: (i) interface of mechanics of materials and biology, with emphasis on biomimetics and (ii) mechanics of functional materials, including those with multiple functionality (mechanical, chemical, thermal, etc.). Applicants should be able to teach statics and strength of materials at undergraduate level, basic materials science courses in material structure and structure-property relations, and graduate courses in continuum mechanics, energy methods, fracture, and other related areas of mechanics. It is expected that successful candidates will be able to cultivate relationships both within and outside of the GWW School, especially in areas of biology, bioengineering, materials processing and fabrication, and materials design. Priority will be given to applicants who combine aspects of advanced diagnostics, novel experimental approaches, and modeling across various length scales, and complement existing GWW faculty expertise.
The MEMS Research Area Group is seeking candidates at the assistant professor rank to complement the existing team of faculty within the School working in the areas of transducers, acoustic sensors, biosensors, AFM, ferroelectric actuators, microfluidic devices, nanowires, thin films and novel techniques for measurement of their thermal and mechanical properties. Specific areas of interest are biomedical devices based on MEMS/NEMS and scalable nanomanufacturing. Candidates would be expected to take advantage of the unique interdisciplinary research environment provided by the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology, the Manufacturing Research Center, and Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at Georgia Tech.
The Tribology Research Area Group is seeking applicants for tenure track faculty positions in the areas of theoretical and/or experimental tribology. Special emphasis will be given to candidate with backgrounds in the areas of nano-tribology, bio-tribology, surface engineering and tribo-materials, and elastohydrodynamic lubrication.
