The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University invites
applications from outstanding faculty candidates at all levels and in
all tracks (tenure-track, research, and systems) with special interest
in the areas of
 
        Activity Recognition
        Sensing: skin, tactile, auditory, accelerometers, multimodal
        Computer Vision
        Systems Engineering
        Control, Dynamics and Modeling, Non-linear Control
        Mechanical Design and Biomorphic Engineering
        Underwater, Space, and Medical Robotics
        Computer Graphics
        Haptics
        Intelligent Prosthetics
 
Outstanding candidates in other areas are also welcomed.
 
Applications should include a letter indicating the area of
specialization, a detailed curriculum vitae, statement of current and
future research and teaching directions (if appropriate for the track),
copies of 1-3 representative papers, and the names and email addresses
of three or more individuals who have been asked to provide letters
of reference. Applicants should arrange for reference letters to be
sent directly to the Faculty Search Committee (hard copy or email),

The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University was established in
1979 to conduct basic and applied research in robotics technologies
relevant to industrial and societal tasks. Seeking to combine the
practical and the theoretical, the Robotics Institute has diversified
its efforts and approaches to robotics science while retaining its
original goal of realizing the potential of the robotics field.  Faculty
members hold primary appointments in the institute and also in
Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the
other units of the School of Computer Science.  In addition to the
Robotics Institute, the School of Computer Science is also home to the
Computer Science Department, Language Technologies Institute, Machine
Learning Department, Human Computer Interaction Institute, and Institute
for Software Research, International.
 
Faculty candidates are expected to have a strong interest in research,
outstanding academic credentials, and an earned Ph.D. Candidates for
tenure-track appointments should also have a strong interest in graduate
and undergraduate education. The highly selective  graduate programs
in the Robotics Institute and elsewhere in the School
of Computer Science draw top students from around the world.

may be found at www.ri.cmu.edu.
 
Carnegie Mellon University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity
Employer and encourages applications from women and members of
underrepresented groups.
