Aerospace Engineering Systems Visiting Scholar

The Aerospace Engineering Systems Visiting Scholar program is an annual opportunity established to bring exceptional engineering experts to share their work and interact with AES faculty, particularly those faculty working in the Aerospace Engineering Systems focus area within our department. The position is open to individuals with aerospace research interests in control and vehicle systems, fluid dynamics, structures and materials, and computational sciences. The Visiting Scholar may be an established faculty member or a rising young investigator who has interest in collaboration with department faculty. It is envisioned that the Visiting Scholar will come to campus for a period of several weeks to several months, possibly in connection with a sabbatical period. The position will provide funding support for travel, lodging, and per diem expenses. Although the Visiting Scholar is nominally hosted during the summer, Fall or Spring semester visits are possible.

Persons interested in the Visiting Scholar position should provide a CV and short Statement of Interest to the Visiting Scholar Committee Chair, Prof. John Farnsworth (john.farnsworth@colorado.edu). Visiting Scholars are selected on a rolling basis.
