Faculty Position in Robotics and Control 
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the College of
Engineering at Michigan State University (MSU) invites applications for a
tenure-system faculty position in the areas of robotics and control.
Candidates must have an earned PhD in Electrical Engineering or related
field. Of particular interest are candidates who demonstrate strong
background in controls and apply such to emerging fields in robotics,
including, but not limited to, autonomy, bio-inspired robotics, biomedical
robotics, novel mobility, agricultural inspection and automation,
multi-agent cooperation, human-robot interaction, and additive
manufacturing. The candidate is expected to make significant contributions
to research, participate in teaching and mentor undergraduate and graduate
This position is targeted at the junior faculty level, but senior candidates
with outstanding credentials may be considered. Successful candidates are
expected to leverage existing programs and facilities, and build on inter-
and cross-disciplinary research strengths at MSU. Senior-level candidates
should have a distinguished track record of research, innovation and
sustained external funding from diverse sources. 
The Electrical and Computer Engineering department has strong
interdisciplinary research and educational programs on a foundation of core
electrical and computer engineering disciplines and provides first-class
education while engaging in research at the frontiers of knowledge. The
Department has 49 faculty members, including two National Academy of
Engineering members, 18 IEEE Fellows, and 13 NSF CAREER awardees. The
Department has strong research programs in all major areas of electrical and
computer engineering, with annual research expenditure of about $18M.
Faculty in the Department are leading several federal and industry-supported
centers, including the NSF Science and Technology Center BEACON, and the
Fraunhofer Center for Coatings and Laser Applications. The Department has
accredited B.S. degree programs in both Electrical Engineering and Computer
Engineering. The current enrollment is approximately 260 full-time graduate
students and 770 undergraduate students. 
MSU enjoys a park-like campus with outlying research facilities and natural
areas. The campus is adjacent to the city of East Lansing and the capital
city of Lansing. The Lansing metropolitan area has a diverse population of
