Join the ADvanced AIRspace Usability (ADAIR) project!

Aviation is rapidly changing: In the next 15 years, the number of air passengers and the number of aircrafts will double compared to their levels in 2017. New flight deck technologies are urgently required to sustain this expected growth. Polytechnique Montreal, McGill University and Ryerson University joined together to design the flight deck of the future. We work in human factors, user-centered design, mixed reality and avionics systems, and you can be part of that team.

We are currently looking for top-minded researchers and students to join our research program and transform the way pilots interact with the cockpit.

Open research positions

The project will start in September 2022 for a duration of three years.

What you will work on

We planned the project such that you can focus your work on one research topic in a specific interaction domain.

Why you should join us

How to Apply

To apply, please email Jeremy Cooperstock, preferably including:

  1. A brief letter of application, describing your qualifications and relevant experience to the position of interest, along with your dates of availability.
  2. Detailed CV with links to online papers and/or project portfolios.
  3. Three (3) reference letters (sent separately).

The positions are available immediately, with a reasonably flexible start date. Informal inquiries are welcome. Note that we have recruited a cohort of graduate students but are still seeking several candidates for post-doctoral and/or research associate positions (for the latter, you must have a Canadian work visa or possibly NAFTA eligibility).

About us: The Shared Reality Lab conducts research in audio, video, and haptic technologies, building systems that leverage their capabilities to facilitate and enrich both human-computer and computer-mediated human-human interaction. The lab is part of the Centre for Intelligent Machines and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of McGill University. McGill, one of Canada's most prestigious universities, is located in Montreal, a top city to live in, especially for students.

McGill University is committed to equity in employment and diversity. It welcomes applications from women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, ethnic minorities, persons of minority sexual orientation or gender identity, visible minorities, and others who may contribute to further diversification. In Quebec, "Postdoctoral Fellow" is a regulated category of trainee. Notably, a postdoctoral candidate must be within five years of graduating with a Ph.D. For more information, please consult
