Dear robotics-worldwide community,

The following faculty position announcement is being sent to the
mailing list because the search committee believes candidates with a
robotics background and a robotics research agenda are well suited for this
position. The search committee views manufacturing as a broad area with
clear ties to robotics and automation.

Feel free to contact me is you have any questions,


The Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell
University, Ithaca, NY invites applications for a tenure track faculty
position in the areas of Design and Manufacturing, as related strongly to
the disciplines within Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Candidates
must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field and are expected to establish
an outstanding, funded research program as well as to contribute fully to
both undergraduate and graduate instruction in the areas of design and/or
manufacturing. Applicants at the level of
Assistant or Associate Professor are preferred. Salary and rank will be
commensurate with qualifications and experience.

We seek outstanding individuals engaged in research centered on design
and/or manufacturing of engineered systems and products. Areas of interest
include design using programmable/smart/electronic materials; design
automation; human centered design; sustainable design; additive
manufacturing; manufacturing of advanced and multifunctional material
systems; and the end-to-end, interdisciplinary design process, including
creativity, innovation, prototyping,
and manufacturing. Applicants should have strong depth, and their research
should build upon, one or more of the Sibley School’s disciplines,
including solid mechanics and materials, fluid dynamics and thermal
systems, and dynamics and control.

Cornell University fosters interdisciplinary research and an atmosphere of
cooperation through its Centers and Field system. Faculty in Design and
Manufacturing will have outstanding opportunities to collaborate with
faculty and researchers, and work with graduate students, in many other
Fields: Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Material Science,
Computer Science, etc. and Centers/Facilities: Cornell Center for Materials
Research and the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility.

The Sibley School and the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace
diversity and seek candidates who will foster a climate that attracts
students of all races, nationalities and genders. We strongly encourage
individuals from underrepresented groups in Engineering to apply. Cornell
University seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, has a Dual
Career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education
