Utah is world-famous for the robot systems produced by its spinoff
company Sarcos, including the Utah/MIT Dextrous Hand, the Sarcos
Dextrous Arm, and various humanoid robots. Recently the University of
Utah was awarded an NSF IGERT grant on the theme Biocentric
Robotics. The two robotics faculty positions build upon the IGERT
award.

Applicants should have earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely
related field for the School of Computing position, or a Ph.D. in
Mechanical Engineering or closely related field for the Department of
Mechanical Engineering position.  We seek dynamic young researchers
with exceptional research backgrounds who wish to build a strong
research program while complementing our current efforts, and are
committed to teaching excellence in robotics and related areas of
computer science or mechanical engineering.
