Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Mechanical Engineering, in conjunction with the
Division of Systems Engineering, invites applications for a tenure
track position at the Assistant Professor level beginning Fall 2015 in
the area of Robotics and Cyber-Physical Systems.  The ME department is
multi-disciplinary with strong expertise in systems and control,
nanotechnology, materials characterization, fluid dynamics, modeling,
and acoustics.  In addition to robotics, application areas of interest
include health, energy and sustainability, and manufacturing.  The
department and the division are further strengthened by their
affiliations with the Center for Information and Systems Engineering
(CISE) and the Division of Materials Science and Engineering. Both the
Department and the College of Engineering are implementing ambitious
ten-year plans, in line with Boston University’s commitment as a top
tier research university engaged in substantial growth in the coming

With this search, we would like to increase the research portfolio in
Robotics and Cyber-Physical Systems; however, outstanding candidates
with interest in our other research areas are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in a relevant field
of engineering or applied science, and should be able to show strong
potential for attracting external research funding.   The applicant
should be able to contribute to the graduate and undergraduate
programs in Mechanical Engineering and the graduate programs in
Systems Engineering.  Salary is competitive and commensurate with

The ME department has 46 primary faculty members (35 tenured or on
tenure track), many of whom hold secondary appointments in other
Departments and Divisions within the College. Undergraduate and
graduate enrollments are approximately 500 and 150 respectively.  Our
BS degree in ME allows for optional departmental concentrations in
aerospace engineering and manufacturing engineering and college-wide
concentrations in energy technologies, nanotechnology, and technology
innovation.  At the graduate level, the ME Department offers research
and professional Masters degrees in both mechanical and manufacturing
engineering and a PhD in mechanical engineering.
