Bahcesehir University (BAU, http://www.bahcesehir.edu.tr/) is seeking to
hire full-time faculty at the rank of Assistant Professor in the field of
robotics. Applicants are expected to hold a Doctoral degree in mechanical
or mechatronics engineering, computer science or in a discipline related to
robotics, and are required to have a record of quality research, teaching
and scholarship. Successful applicants will be affiliated with the
Stanford-BAU Robotics Lab (http://robotics.bahcesehir.edu.tr/). The
recruited faculty member is expected to:

·         Collaborate with existing faculty members,

·         Pursue external funding to support research,

·         Teach classes to support the undergraduate and graduate programs,

·         Develop new courses,

·         Advise and recruit graduate students,

Although applicants from all fields of robotics are welcome to apply,
having prior research experience in machine learning and/or human-robot
interaction is a plus.

*Stanford-BAU Robotics Lab*

Stanford-BAU Robotics Lab was established as a part of the research
cooperation agreement signed by BAU and Prof. Oussama Khatib’s Robotics Lab
at Stanford University in 2014. The agreement involves joint academic
activities between the two parties in the field of robotics, including
faculty and graduate student exchanges, joint research projects, and
scientific workshops. The lab is dedicated to conducting multi-disciplinary
research on a variety of frontiers in robotics that fall under the theme of
‘human centered robotics’ including virtual dynamic simulations, robot
dynamics and control, robot learning, human-robot interaction, haptics and
tele-operation. The lab is very well equipped with several manipulators
(including a KUKA iiwa lightweight arm), grippers (including an
anthropomorphic hand), haptic systems, and mobile robotic platforms.
