Ph.D. Studentships in Spacecraft Design, Dynamics and Control

The Department of Aerospace Engineering at Ryerson University has a strong and vibrant research programme involving the development of pico- and femto-satellites (weighing less than 1 kilogram) under Dr. Krishna Kumar, a well known international expert in the area of spacecraft dynamics and control. Two Ph PhD studentships are available in his areas of research starting Fall 2007. Dr. Kumar’s areas of research include Dynamics and Control of Space Systems, Orbit and Attitude Dynamics and Control, Formation Flying, Microsatellite systems, Pico- and Femto-Satellites using Nanotechnology and Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS). To pursue research in these exciting areas, the candidates should have a bachelor/master’s degree in Aerospace/Mechanical/Electrical/ Electronics/Computer engineering with a strong background in dynamics and control systems, mathematics as well as high GPA and TOEFL score.  The candidates with experience in designing real-time controllers and communication systems are also preferable. Interested candidates should send (preferably by email) latest by April 7, 2007, their resumes along with names and contact information of three references as well as copies of research papers to:  Dr. Krishna Kumar, Associate Professor, Canada Research Chair in Space Systems Engineering, Department of Aerospace Engineering, Ryerson University, 350 Victoria Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5B 2K3; Tel: 1-416-979-5000 Ext. 4908, Fax: 1-416-979-5056; Email:;;
