Mechanical Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Computer 
Science or related area, and demonstrated the ability to: perform and/or 
direct innovative research in robotics; communicate and teach 
effectively; and attract the necessary funding to sustain an innovative 
research program.

The successful candidate is expected to have a strong research record 
the specific area of robotics, as well as possess broad 
interdisciplinary knowledge in related areas such as dynamics, control, 
vision, mechatronics, and biological systems. There is strong potential
