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 many have 
appointments in other academic units including Mechanical Engineering, 
Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Machine Learning, and 
Computer Science.

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 draw top students from around the world. Further 
information about the Robotics Institute and its programs 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.
