Faculty Position in Autonomy

The School of Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology
invites nominations and applications for a faculty position in the general
area of autonomous and intelligent control systems, with emphasis on
aerospace vehicles and systems, and their interaction with human
operators. The appointment is expected to be at the Assistant Professor
level, but appointments to the Associate or Full Professor level will be
considered for exceptional candidates having demonstrated a superior
research and teaching record with a strong commitment to aerospace

Candidates are required to have a doctorate in Aerospace Engineering,
Electrical or Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or another closely
related field. The successful candidate should have an outstanding
research record and will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate
courses in his/her area of expertise, supervise graduate students, and
interact with the faculty on the development of a strong, independent,
externally funded research program. The candidate will also be expected to
interact with the newly established Institute for Robotics and Intelligent
Machines (IRIM) at Georgia Tech.

The Aerospace Engineering program at Georgia Tech is the largest program
of its kind in the US, having approximately 40 full-time faculty members,
and more than 800 undergraduate students and 500+ graduate students. Its
undergraduate and graduate programs are typically ranked among the top
aerospace engineering programs in the nation. The research interests of
the faculty cover a broad spectrum including gas dynamics, propulsion,
combustion, aerodynamics, structural mechanics, flight mechanics, orbital
mechanics, rotorcraft, aircraft and space systems design, dynamics and
control, air-traffic control, and cognitive engineering. Information about
the School can be found at www.ae.gatech.edu. 
Applicants should send (electronically or via mail) a curriculum vitae, a
cover letter, a statement of teaching interests and philosophy, a
