in Connected and Automated Vehicles *

The University of Michigan’s College of Engineering (COE) and the
University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI), has a
joint tenure-track faculty opening in the area of connected and automated
vehicle systems.  This is an important research and teaching area as
national and global challenges in transportation safety, energy, emissions,
and infrastructure emerge. The position will consist of a tenure-track
appointment in the candidate’s preferred College of Engineering department,
and a secondary appointment in UMTRI.  All ranks will be considered for the
positions.  Applicants shall have a doctorate in engineering or related
field of study, and those applying at the Associate Professor or Professor
levels must have a well-established academic record, including scholarly
publications and an externally funded research program.  The areas of
interest include, but are not limited to: *active safety, vehicle control,
driver-assistance systems, and all aspects of vehicle automation, including
sensing, single- and multi-vehicle planning and coordination, control,
validation, communication systems, human-machine interfaces, and security.*

In addition to the strength of their research potential, applicants will be
evaluated on their vision and potential for teaching within an appropriate
academic department at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Reduced
teaching loads will be available for those with significant collaborations
with UMTRI.  The successful candidates should also establish an active
research program that spans between the COE and UMTRI while conducting
multi-disciplinary research and teaching activities with colleagues in
other Departments and Colleges on campus.

Interested individuals should submit their curriculum vitae, statements of
research interests and teaching philosophy, copies of representative
research publications, and contact information for five references
electronically to:  coeumtrisearch at umich.edu.  All other inquiries may be
directed to Dr. Huei Peng (hpeng at umich.edu), Faculty Search Committee
Chair. Applications are requested by January 5, 2014 when the committee’s
selection process will begin.  However, applications will be accepted until
the position is filled.
