Manufacturing Engineering (MIME).  All areas in robotics and related fields
will be considered, with the primary goal of finding top-quality candidates
who can work with us as we build a strong robotics program (
http://robotics.oregonstate.edu/faculty).  This search is part of general
growth at OSU, and MIME is hiring five faculty members across a broad range
of specialties. Robotics candidates who align with multiple areas for
collaboration will be of particular interest, including but not limited to:


   Advanced manufacturing

   Design for land, air and marine vehicles

   Machine design

   Biomedical Engineering


   Renewable Energy

   Industrial robotics


The currently published deadline is October 15, although this may shift.
 If you would like to apply and the date is later than that listed on the
official posting, please contact me.  The official job description is

The School of MIME invites applications for multiple tenure-track or
tenured faculty positions in the School's mechanical engineering program
and its industrial and manufacturing engineering program. These positions
are full-time (1.0 FTE) 9-month appointments. Applicants must hold a
doctorate in a relevant field. The successful candidates will be expected
to initiate new funded research as well as to expand, complement, and
collaborate with existing research programs in the School, the OSU College
of Engineering, and beyond.

The School has existing research threads in robotics, advanced
manufacturing, next-generation materials, renewable energy systems and
humanitarian engineering that cut across its disciplines of industrial,
energy systems, manufacturing and mechanical engineering and the graduate
program in materials science. Preference will be given to candidates with
strong research interests in the above research threads and teaching
ability in the MIME disciplines. Additionally, there is a specific call for
a faculty member with disciplinary expertise in mechanical and/or
industrial design and research interests that align with the research

Faculty collaboration opportunities include, but are not limited to, ONAMI
(Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute), Oregon BEST (Built
Environment & Sustainable Technologies Center), MBI (Microproducts
Breakthrough Institute), NNMREC (Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy
Center), OMI (Oregon Metals Initiative) and others.
