The University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS) is
seeking applications for a tenure-stream position at the level of Assistant
Professor or Associate Professor in Aerospace Engineering. The appointment
will begin on or after July 1, 2012.

Consideration will be given to applicants with expertise in any area
related to aerospace science and engineering. We are particularly
interested in applicants whose primary area of research is related to space
science and engineering. Relevance to either of the UTIAS strategic areas
of 1) robotics for space exploration and 2) microsatellites is an asset.
Applicants must have a doctoral degree, typically from an aerospace or
mechanical engineering department, and a strong commitment to both teaching
and research. The successful candidate is expected to establish and lead a

objectives and accomplishments, and (iii) examples of publications and
material relevant to teaching experience. Applicants are also asked to
provide the names and contact information (mailing address, telephone, fax,
and email) of five referees who are able to comment on the applicant's
experience and ability in teaching and research.  Applications must be
submitted electronically at http://www.jobs.utoronto.ca/faculty.htm and
