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

a wide range of faculty in Robotics and other areas of SEAS. Priority
will be given to the overall potential of the candidate.
