University of California, San Diego
The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, at the University of California, San Diego, is conducting an open search for Project Scientists (non-tenured Assistant). At UC San Diego, Project Scientists are academic researchers who are expected to make significant and creative contributions to a research team, but are not necessarily leaders of the research team.

Project Scientists may not serve as a Principal Investigator but may serve as Co-Principal Investigators with members of the Professor or Research Scientist series. University and public service are encouraged but not required, and they do not have formal teaching responsibilities. Appointment duration will vary depending on the length of the research project and availability of funding.
Expertise would be in one of the following areas; aerospace, controls, design, environmental, fluid mechanics, information storage, mechanics & materials, robotics, biomedical, biomaterial, medical devices, combustion, plasma and fusion, and renewables.
