_Tenure, Research, and Systems Faculty Positions at the Robotics Institute_

The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University invites 
applications from outstanding candidates in all areas of robotics at all 
levels and tracks (tenure-track, research, and systems). We have special 
interests in:

- Dynamics and control
- Machine learning
- Novel mechanisms, materials and actuators
- Perception including computer vision, audition, and tactile sensing.

We are also interested in growing fundamental scientific programs that 
would support the following application areas:

- Aerial robotics
- Agricultural and environmental robotics
- Autonomy and vision for outdoor systems
- Manufacturing
- Quality of life and medical robotics
- Soft and compliant robotics (design, sensing, and manipulation)

Please include a letter indicating the area of specialization and 
faculty track, a detailed curriculum vitae (including citizenship or 
current visa status for non-US citizens), a research statement 
(including both current and future directions) and a teaching statement 
(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.

Applications will be accepted from November 1, 2011 through January 1, 
2012 (but may continue to be accepted for review after that date until 
all positions have been filled).  Applicants should arrange for 
reference letters to be sent directly to the Robotics Institute Faculty 
Search Committee and are due no later than January 15, 2012.  (Letters 
will not be requested directly by the Search Committee.)

Applications and reference letters (PDF format) may be submitted via 
email to robotics-facultysearch at ri.cmu.edu
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.
The Robotics Institute is part of the School of Computer Science, 
Carnegie Mellon University.
