Subject: Job Opening
* Outstanding Applied Researchers needed *
The Boeing Company, the world's largest aerospace company, is
actively working research projects involving NASA, FAA, Air Traffic
Control, and Global Positioning as well as airplane and manufacturing
research. The Research and Technology organization located
in Bellevue, Washington, near Seattle, has positions open.
We are the primary computing research organization for Boeing.
We have contributed heavily to both short term technology advances and
to long range planning and development.
- Machine Learning
BACKGROUND REQUIRED: Data Mining, Knowledge Discovery
Statistics, Artificial Intelligence or related
RESEARCH AREAS: We are developing techniques for mining a very diverse
set of data: Safety Data -- safety incident data, flight data
recorders; Reliability Data -- maintenance actions, airplane
maintenance warnings; Manufacturing Data - rejected parts, quality
assurance data. These are not areas where most large R&D datamining
efforts are currently focused. There are many new innovative research
directions which are not being addressed elsewhere. At the same time,
we can achieve major practical impacts in the short-term both at
Boeing and in the airline industry as a whole: airplane or factory
redesign, new pilot regulations or training, which may result in a
safer more cost effective air travel industry.
- Knowledge Representation
BACKGROUND REQUIRED: A strong background in Artificial
Intelligence plus some specialization in Knowledge
Representation and Reasoning, Ontology Development, Knowledge
Based Engineering, Knowledge Sharing and Reuse or related
RESEARCH AREAS: Knowledge Based (KB) design methods are gaining
acceptance as a way to implement standard design methods used in
all parts of the design lifecycle. We are developing methods for
neutral representation of design rules, methods to capture and
refine specifications, and are looking for ways to capture and
manage design assumptions. The design of aircraft is one of the
most challenging tests of knowledge based methods: an airplane
consists of millions of parts, design is subject to rigorous
certification, and more designed tooling is used than for almost
any other application.
A PhD in Computer Science or equivalent experience is highly
desirable for both positions. We strongly encourage diversity
in backgrounds including academic and industrial experiences.
APPLICATION: If you meet the requirements and you are interested, please
send your resume via electronic email in plain ASCII format to
firstname.lastname@example.org (Pat Riddle).
The Boeing Company is an equal opportunity employer.
