The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications
from outstanding faculty candidates at all levels and tracks (tenure-track,
research, and systems). We are interested in all areas of robotics
- Dynamics, control, and planning
- Graphics
- 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
support robotics application areas including:
- 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 research areas 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 December 1, 2012 through January 15,
2013 (but may continue to be accepted for review after that date until all
positions have been filled).

Applications and reference letters (PDF format) should be submitted to:

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, 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

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.
