The School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) invites applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor with expertise in space systems and technology, to begin August 2017. Rank and tenure status will be commensurate with experience. The School encourages applications from a pool of diverse candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas: space hardware development including CubeSats and nanosatellites; instrument design and assembly; software and systems development for space applications; sensor development for extreme environments including space qualification of sensors, hazard detection and avoidance; autonomous systems and technologies for robotic/human exploration. Spaceflight hardware, software and/or mission operations experience is strongly desired. The successful candidate will connect science drivers with engineering solutions, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, conduct research publishable in top-tier journals, and participate in service to the institution and profession as appropriate.
The School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) at Arizona State University brings together all of Earth and space science into one school, breaking traditional disciplinary boundaries to investigate the biggest questions. SESE combines the strengths of science, engineering, and education, to set the stage for a new era of exploration. An essential part of the SESE mission is to design, develop, and deploy new technologies to enable scientific exploration in space. SESE is currently leading at least four funded CubeSat missions: LunaH-Map, SWIM-Sat, Phoenix and AOSat, with many more smallsat missions and technology development efforts in various stages of development (https://sese.asu.edu/research/smallsats). In addition, SESE is participating in several larger space missions including the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, OSIRIS-REx, Mars 2020, Mars Odyssey, Opportunity, and EMIRS. SESE faculty benefit from a variety of state-of-the-art facilities on the Tempe AZ campus, including high-bay assembly clean rooms, thermal-vacuum facilities, spaceflight qualified machine shops and a ground-station to communicate with spacecraft.
