Faculty Positions in Autonomous, Intelligent and Robotic Systems

The School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering, one
of the six Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University seeks
applicants for tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in autonomous systems
and robotics. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
multi-agent and distributed systems, swarm robotics, coordinated sensing
and perception, artificial intelligence, natural language processing,
human-in-the loop systems and cross-disciplinary applications. We
particularly encourage candidates interested in cross-cutting research
areas such as bio-inspired design, unmanned collaborative systems, smart
grid, intelligent transportation systems, modular and self-reconfigurable
robots, brain machine interfaces and human-robot interaction.

ASU has a university wide initiative on robotics that spans the six Fulton
Schools of Engineering, the School of Earth and Space Exploration and other
units on both the Tempe and Polytechnic campuses. Successful candidates
will be encouraged to collaborate on multidisciplinary research activities.
Current university activities include applications in intelligent
manufacturing, unmanned vehicles, wearable devices, prosthetics and space

Required qualifications include an earned doctorate or terminal degree in
computer science or related engineering field and demonstrated evidence of
excellence in research and teaching as appropriate to the candidate’s rank.
Desired qualifications include a record of acquiring external funding and
publication in top tier journals/conferences, and a commitment to
participating on and leading trans-disciplinary teams addressing problems
of high societal impact.

Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and
externally funded research program, develop and teach graduate and
undergraduate courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate
students, and undertake service activities.

Appointments will be at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor rank

August 2016. The appointment may be made in any of the Fulton Schools of
Engineering’s six schools but the areas of interest outlined above are most
