The Automated Reasoning group at the Honeywell Technology Center
is accepting applications for the following position:

Senior Research Scientist - We are interested in hiring an individual with
research interests in one or more of the following areas:
scheduling, distributed AI, planning, and constraint
satisfaction. A Ph.D. in computer science or a related area is required. In
addition to technical competence, breadth of knowledge, and research
promise, other evaluation criteria for this position include the ability to
formulate and carry out an independent program of research and good
communication skills, both spoken and written.

The Honeywell Technology Center (HTC) is Honeywell's corporate R&D
laboratory, located in Minneapolis, MN. The main research groups
include Systems and Software, Controls, Information Processing &
Displays, and Sensors. Much of the research performed at HTC is funded
by federal agencies, including ARPA, NASA, NIST, the FAA, FHA, and the
DOE. Additional support comes from Honeywell product divisions. The HTC web
site http://www.htc.honeywell.com is currently under construction, but
does provide a high-level overview of the research center.

The Automated Reasoning group consists of approximately 17 research staff,
plus supporting personnel, within the Systems and Software technology area.
We have ongoing projects in the areas of planning and scheduling,
constraint-based reasoning, simulation, health maintenance and diagnosis,
real-time AI, information modeling, neural nets, and collaborative
agent-based systems. The work environment fosters the development of
individual research projects either within or complementary to current
research areas. The research we conduct tends to be somewhat applied.
Proving out ideas through the construction of prototype systems is a common
activity, though not to the complete exclusion of more theoretical
research. Interaction with the larger research community and collaboration
with researchers both inside and outside of Honeywell is encouraged.

For your information, the following is a list of research scientists
in the Automated Reasoning Group, along with a few major focus areas
each specializes in.

John Allen <machine learning, planning, scheduling>
Hannah Blau <data mining, computational linguistics, clustering>
Mark Boddy <scheduling, constraint-based reasoning, planning, RTAI>
Jim Carciofini <scheduling, constraint-based reasoning>
Chris Geib <planning, uncertainty>
Robert Goldman <scheduling, planning, bayesian reasoning, nat lang>
Karen Zita Haigh <planning, mobile robotics>
Steve Harp <neural nets, bayesian reasoning, data mining>
Kurt Krebsbach <realtime AI, planning, agents, distr scheduling>
Kamakshi Lakshminayaran <data mining, bayesian reasoning, neural nets>
David Musliner <realtime AI, planning, distributed scheduling, agents>
Kyle Nelson <diagnostics, agents, UI generation>
Mike Pelican <planning, distributed real-time systems>
Robin Penner <UI generation, agents, UI design>
Erik Steinmetz <scheduling, agents, Java>
Ronald Quinn <neural nets, diagnostics>
Jim White <scheduling, planning>

Those interested in applying for this position should submit the
following information:

  - A resume or curriculum vitae, including relevant publications.
  - Reprints of at most three research papers.
  - A description of relevant research experience, *if* the papers do
            not make that obvious.
  - Names and phone numbers or email addresses for three references.
  - Desired start date.

Students and others expecting to be available for work within the next
6-9 months are encouraged to apply. U.S. citizenship or permanent
residence is required. Applications or requests for additional
information should be directed to our manager:
