Robotics Engineering Program Professor and Program Director

THE WPI ROBOTICS ENGINEERING PROGRAM is looking for an outstanding 
faculty member for a tenure-track position at the Associate Professor 
level to serve as the Program Director starting in the Fall of 2007. 
Candidates should have a PhD, extensive experience in Robotics, and 
demonstrated excellence in research and teaching.

The Robotics Engineering Program is a joint venture by the Computer 
Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering 
Departments.  The Program comprises over 20 associated faculty and staff 
from these departments, and plans to hire additional tenure-track 
faculty.  Please refer to our web site at 
http://www.wpi.edu/Academics/Majors/RBE/ for complete information.

The Program Director is expected to play an active role in all aspects 
of the curriculum of the Robotics Engineering Program, lead a vigorous 
externally funded research effort, develop external relations, and 
recruit additional faculty.

WPI is an elite national university with an enrollment of 3,700, 
including 1,000 graduate students. It has a core focus on engineering, 
science and the management of technology, and grants degrees at the 
Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral levels in more than 30 disciplines. 
WPI's acclaimed and long-standing project-based undergraduate curriculum 
is singled out by professional societies as a model program. That 
curriculum, combined with a significant graduate program, offers faculty 
a unique balance between research and teaching.

WPI is in Worcester, Massachusetts, the second largest city in 
Massachusetts and the third largest in New England. It is approximately 
one hour from both Boston and Providence; cultural and recreational 
resources abound in the region.  The UMass Medical Center and large 
number of technology companies, colleges, and universities in the 
immediate area make it ideal for dual career families.

To apply, submit detailed Research and Teaching Statements, Curriculum 
Vitae, and the names, postal addresses, and email addresses of at least 
five references.  Applications and any questions about the hiring 
process should be addressed to: robotics-recruit at wpi.edu
