Tenure-track Faculty Position in Robotics

The Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) seeks 
applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in Robotics. We invite 
applications in the broadly defined areas of: dynamics and control (e.g. 
theoretical controls, biomechanics modeling, multi-body dynamics, system 
identification); perception; autonomy (e.g. bioinspired approaches to 
robot autonomy); and human-robot interaction (e.g. biosignal 
processing). However, applications from strong candidates in the general 
  area of robotics and automation will also be considered. The expected 
  start date is July 1, 2015.

Candidates are required to have a doctorate or terminal degree by the 
expected start date.  In addition, we seek candidates who have an 
outstanding research record and a strong commitment to undergraduate 
teaching and graduate training.  In particular, we are looking for 
broadly educated and multidisciplinary applicants who can interact with 
  a wide range of faculty in Robotics and other areas of SEAS.  Priority 
  will be given to the overall potential of the candidate.

Required application documents include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, 
  statement of research interests, a teaching statement, up to three 
representative papers, and names and contact information for three to 
five references.  We encourage candidates to apply by November 1, 2014, 
  but will continue to accept applications until the position is filled. 
  Applicants will apply on-line at 

Robotics research at Harvard benefits from outstanding undergraduate and 
  graduate students, an excellent location relative to neighboring
