Yale is seeking to fill two positions related to its newly created Center
for Engineering Innovation and Design and is interested in candidates with
"hands on" experience in robotics and intelligent systems. The first is an
Instructor position and requires a PhD. The second is a Masters/Bachelors
level position. Both require substantial "hands-on" design experience and
will be focused on working with undergraduate design courses and projects.

 

Please see below for further information.
