Two Ph.D. studentships and one Postdoctoral fellowship are available in Spacecraft Dynamics and Control, and Space Sensors and Actuators. The student will work in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, Ryerson University (www.ryerson.ca/aerospace).
The research will be supervised by Dr. Krishna Kumar, Canada Research Chair. Dr. Kumar’s areas of research include Nonlinear Dynamics and Control, Sensors and Actuators, Sliding Mode Control, Intelligent Control, Orbit and Attitude Dynamics and Control, Formation Flying, and Underactuated Systems (refer to the web page: http://www.kdkumar.com) . These are challenging research and involve theoretical and experimental work. The candidate should have a Master’s/Ph.D. degree in mathematics/physics or mechanical/aerospace/electrical engineering with a focus on dynamics, nonlinear control, sensors and actuators. The candidate must have a strong background in mathematics, dynamics and control. Experience with MATLAB is essential. Know ledge of orbital or attitude dynamics is desirable. The candidates for PhD studentships must be Canadian or permanent resident. The prospective candidate should send (preferably by email) their resumes along with names and contact information of two references as well as copies of research papers before December 18, 2009 to:
Dr. Krishna Kumar, Associate Professor
Canada Research Chair in Space Systems
