Dear Robotics Colleagues,
We are pleased to announce open tenure-track faculty positions in Robotics and related areas in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah. The Robotics Track at Utah has attracted a core group of 9 faculty members bridging Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, resulting in outstanding opportunities for research collaborations and education in Robotics. Please encourage your PhD graduates and postdocs in robotics and related fields to apply. We will start reviewing applications on December 1, 2015 and continue until positions are filled. More information can be found at:
Mechanical engineering is currently hiring in four areas for five positions. Candidates should submit an application to each position that they are interested in and qualified for. Two of the positions of particular interest follow:
Robotics Position: Candidates with research interests and expertise in robotics and related systems are encouraged to apply. An emphasis on applied design, instrumentation, modeling and/or control of robotic systems is preferred. Candidates must have an established record of published research, must exhibit strong potential for extramural funding within their area of expertise, and are expected to develop a vigorous research program. Candidates must also be qualified to teach courses in the core curriculum of a mechanical engineering program, and to teach existing courses or develop new courses that support the Robotics Track. The Robotics Track (robotics.coe.utah.edu<http://robotics.coe.utah.edu/>) is a joint graduate program between the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the School of Computing that has attracted a core group of 9 faculty members. Graduate students can pursue M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in the Robotics Track, while undergraduates may elect to pursue an emphasis in Robotics. Apply to the Robotics position using this link: http://utah.peopleadmin.com/postings/45532.
Design and Manufacturing Position: Candidates with research interests and expertise in design and/or manufacturing are encouraged to apply. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: medical devices, human-machine systems, compliant/soft systems, mechatronic systems, sensors and actuators, engineered materials, and novel/advanced/sustainable/green manufacturing methods and processes. Candidates must have an established record of published research, must exhibit strong potential for extramural funding within their area of expertise, and are expected to develop a vigorous research program. Candidates must also be qualified to teach courses in the core curriculum of a mechanical engineering program and to teach existing courses or develop new courses that support their graduate program.
