The College of Computer and Information Science and The College of
Engineering at Northeastern University invite applications for multiple
open positions in robotics at all levels. We seek exceptional candidates in
all areas of robotics including but not limited to:

 - Sensing, computer vision and information processing for robotics
 - Learning and adaptation applied to robotics
 - Control and system theory for human-robot interaction
 - Planning and actuation in complex robot systems

Outstanding candidates at all levels will be considered. The successful
senior candidate should be an established researcher with a strong record
of funding, peer-reviewed publications, and technical leadership. A Ph.D.
in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical
Engineering or a closely related field to one of the above listed expertise
areas by the start date is required. Successful candidates will be expected
to develop strong independent research programs and to excel in teaching in
both undergraduate and graduate programs.

Robotics at Northeastern consists of a multidisciplinary group of faculty
with established areas of excellence in manipulation and grasping, modeling
and control, localization, mapping and navigation, computer vision, novel
robot designs and manufacturing. Northeastern University has made a strong
commitment to expand in robotics. Last year, we hired three new faculty in
robotics and we hope to significantly expand on this group. All strong
candidates are encouraged to apply.

Applications should include a complete curriculum vitae, a statement of
current and future research interests, a statement of teaching interests,
and contact information for at least four references. For more information,
