Dear Colleagues:

Faculty Position in Robotics and Automation  ( http://www.mecheng.osu.edu/faculty_positions  )

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Ohio State University invites applications from outstanding individuals for a tenure track faculty position with primary focus on Robotics and Automation. The anticipated start date is August 2015, but the search will continue until the position is filled.

This search will consider faculty candidates having interest and expertise to develop a strong research program in a promising area or areas of robotics, including, but not limited to, (a) control, planning, and integration; (b) bio-inspired design with novel mechanisms and materials; (c) robot perception and sensing; and (d) human robot interaction, that support application areas such as manufacturing automation, reconfigurable manufacturing systems, healthcare and medical robots, service robots, soft robots, and micro robots. Whereas candidates are primarily sought at the assistant professor level, exceptionally qualified applicants at the associate professor level may be considered.

An earned doctorate in mechanical engineering or an appropriate related field is required. We seek candidates having demonstrated the ability to conduct research at the highest level, and had a record of, or the promise for, outstanding teaching and supervision of students. The successful candidate will be expected to attract funding to develop and sustain active sponsored research programs, teach core undergraduate and/or graduate courses, and develop new graduate courses related to their research expertise. Screening of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should upload complete curriculum vitae, separate 2-3 page statements of research and teaching goals, and the names and postal/email addresses of four references electronically at http://www.mecheng.osu.edu/faculty_positions 

The Ohio State University is an affirmative/equal opportunity employer. Women, minorities, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply and build a diverse workplace. Columbus is a thriving metropolitan community, and the University is responsive to the needs of dual career couples.
