The UNL Computer Science and Engineering Department plans to hire a
number of faculty in robotics in the coming years.  We have two
assistant professor positions this year for other areas, but we will
also seriously consider candidates in robotics as indicated in the ad
below.  I encourage any strong candidates in robotics to apply to this

UNL is investing significant resources into the CSE department and our
research programs.  This is a great opportunity for those interested
in joining a growing department (currently 23 faculty) where new
faculty will be able to shape the future of the department.  I would
be happy to answer any questions about my experience joining UNL after
being a grad student at MIT, so let me know if you have any questions.
