Dear colleagues,

We have one faculty position that is open at the Tempe campus.


Professor Tom Sugar

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University seek applicants for tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in robotics. Areas of application interest include, but are not limited, to artificial intelligence; dynamics, control and motion planning; human-machine systems; aerial robotics; reconfigurable robotics; soft robotics; multi-robot systems; and, novel methods for robot micro-manufacturing. The originality and promise of each candidate's work are higher priorities than the specific area(s) of research.

We seek applicants who will contribute to our programs and will leverage investments by the University in promoting interdisciplinary teaching and research. These investments include, among others, the Flexible Display Center (https://flexdisplay.asu.edu/), the Security and Defense Systems Initiative (http://sdsi.asu.edu), Lightworks (http://asulightworks.com), the School for Earth and Space Exploration (http://sese.asu.edu/) and the Biodesign Institute (http://biodesign.asu.edu). The current openings are intended to broaden our expertise and expand collaborations.

The successful candidates will hold earned Ph.D.s, or equivalents, in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering or closely related fields. Required qualifications also include demonstrated evidence of research capability and commitment to teaching excellence, as appropriate to each candidate's rank. Desired qualifications include a commitment to trans-disciplinary teaming.

Faculty members are expected to develop internationally recognized and externally funded research programs, develop and teach graduate and undergraduate courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate students and undertake service activities.

Appointments will be at the assistant, associate or full professor ranks, commensurate with each candidate's experience and accomplishments, beginning August 2014. Although the faculty appointments may be in any of the Fulton Schools of Engineering, the Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Programs are currently among the most involved in the interest areas of the search.

Review of applications will begin March 15, 2014; if not filled, reviews will occur on the 1st and 15th of the month thereafter, until the search is closed. To apply, please submit, as a single PDF file, a cover letter, current CV, statements describing research and teaching interests and contact information for three references, to robotics.faculty at asu.edu<mailto:robotics.faculty at asu.edu?subject=Job%20at%20AcademicKeys.com,%20Faculty%20Positions%20in%20Robotics>.

For more information or questions about these positions, please contact the Search Committee Chair, Prof. Tom Sugar, via email, at thomas.sugar at asu.edu<mailto:thomas.sugar at asu.edu?subject=Job%20at%20AcademicKeys.com,%20Faculty%20Positions%20in%20Robotics>.
