Tenure-Track and Tenured Faculty Positions in Robotics
The Johns Hopkins University

The Johns Hopkins University, G.W.C. Whiting School of Engineering,
invites applications for multiple tenure-track and tenured faculty
positions at the level of assistant professor, associate professor,
and full professor. The successful applicant is expected to conduct
fundamental research in the area of robotics.  Research areas of
interest include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

• Sensor based robotics with an emphasis on computer vision and imaging.

• Small-scale robotics with emphasis on systems with features at meso
and micro scales.

• Biorobotics and neuromechanics including devices, algorithms, and
approaches to robotics inspired by principles in biomechanics and
neuroscience, and application of robotics to create new knowledge in
these fields.

• Medical robotics including computer-integrated surgical systems,
image guided intervention, and prosthetics.

• Autonomous robotics for monitoring, exploration, and manipulation with
applications in environmental, home, and defense areas.

• Algorithmic robotics with emphasis on approaches based on simulation
or machine learning.

• Human-machine systems, including haptic and visual feedback, human
perception, cognition and decision making, and human-machine
collaborative systems.

Opportunities for interactions across the University include:

• The Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics

• The Center for Computer-Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology

• The Center for Imaging Science (http://cis.jhu.edu/)

• The Center for Language and Speech Processing (http://www.clsp.jhu.edu/)

• The Institute for Computational Medicine (http://www.icm.jhu.edu/)

• The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (http://www.jhuapl.edu/)

• The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/)

• The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences (http://krieger.jhu.edu/)

and numerous departments such as:

• Mechanical Engineering (http://www.me.jhu.edu/)

• Computer Science (http://www.cs.jhu.edu/)

• Electrical and Computer Engineering (http://www.ece.jhu.edu/)

• Biomedical Engineering (http://www.bme.jhu.edu/)

• Neuroscience (http://neuroscience.jhu.edu/)

• Psychological and Brain Sciences (http://pbs.jhu.edu/)

• Surgery (http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/surgery/)

• Radiology (http://www.hopkinsradiology.org/)

Qualified candidates at all ranks will be considered. The successful
candidate must have a doctorate, and is expected to establish a
strong, independent, internationally recognized research program as
well as contribute fully to both undergraduate and graduate
instruction. Candidates for the positions at the associate or full
professor levels must have an internationally recognized record of
scholarly and professional achievements. Primary appointments will be
in the academic Department most appropriate for the candidate within
the G.W.C. Whiting School of Engineering - e.g. Mechanical
Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or
Biomedical Engineering.

All applications should be submitted electronically online at
https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/603. Applications will be
reviewed starting January 15 and will be accepted until the positions
are filled. Questions should be directed to Louis L. Whitcomb at
robotics-search at jhu.edu. Electronic applications should include a
cover letter describing the principal expertise of the applicant, a
statement of teaching and research interests and experiences, a
complete resume, the names and contact information of at least three
references, and 3-5 relevant publications. Applicants for assistant
professor appointment only should include the names and contact
information (including email address and mailing address) of at least
three references in their curriculum vitae.  Applicants for tenured
associate professor and full professor appointment should NOT include
any reference information. Johns Hopkins University is committed to
building a diverse environment; women and minorities are strongly
encouraged to apply. The Johns Hopkins University is an EEO/AA
