    closely related complex engineering systems (transportation,
    telecommunications, etc.). Appointments are planned for tenure track
    assistant professorships. Appointment to a more senior position is possible
    based on experience and accomplishment. Women and members of U.S. minority
    groups under-represented at MIT are especially encouraged to apply.

    engage in undergraduate and graduate teaching, curriculum development,
    student advising, research, thesis supervision, and departmental and
    Institute governance.

    Areas of special interest at this time are:

    Structures and Materials - Structural mechanics, engineered and advanced
    materials, structural dynamics, aeroelasticity and controlled structures.

    Instrumentation, Control and Estimation - Information systems and
    management, control theory and applications, decision theory, automated
    planning; guidance and dynamics of aerospace vehicles; aerospace sensors.

    Human Factors and Automation - Human activity and protection in air and
    space vehicles; pilot displays and workload; expert systems; flight
    simulation, teleoperation and robotics; large software systems.

    Aeronautical and Astronautical Systems - Aerospace information systems;
    aircraft and space vehicle systems design.

    Applicants must have a doctorate in aerospace, mechanical, or electrical
    engineering, or a closely related field as well as a strong background in
