Faculty Positions in Wearable Robot Technologies
The Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University seek applicants for tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in wearable robot technologies.   Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: rehabilitation robotics, medical robots, mechanical design of robot systems, human-robot interaction, neurorobotics, prosthetics, orthotics, and soft robotics.  We particularly encourage candidates interested in cross-cutting research areas, such as evaluation, design, and translation of robotic devices, bio-inspired design, human performance enhancement technology and cyberphysical systems.
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 Biodesign Institute (http://biodesign.asu.edu), along with academic programs across the University and our health partners in the Valley including the Mayo Clinic (http://www.mayoclinic.com) and Barrows Neurological Institute (http://www.thebarrow.org).  The current openings are intended to broaden our expertise and expand collaborations
Required qualifications include an earned doctorate in engineering, computer science or a related field, demonstrated evidence of research capability and commitment to teaching excellence as appropriate to the candidate's rank.  Desired qualifications include a commitment to a collaborative, transdisciplinary approach to research and teaching.
Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, 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 rank commensurate with the candidate's experience and accomplishments, beginning August 2015.   The appointment may be made in any of the Fulton Schools of Engineering's six schools.
