IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, Technical Committee on Mechanisms and

Call for Junior Chairs

The IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Mechanisms and Design is seeking
applications from energetic researchers and practitioners to serve as Junior
Chairs of the TC. The mission of the TC is to bring together researchers in
Robot Mechanisms and Design within the IEEE RAS community in order to share
knowledge, standardize practices /procedures, and raise the profile of the
exciting new work being done in the area, as well as establish strong ties
to the robotics and robotic components industries. Viewed as the next
generation of leaders for the Technical Committee, the role of the Junior
Chairs will primarily be to spearhead additional efforts in support of the
mission of the TC and improve the quality of existing efforts. Junior Chairs
will be appointed for 1-year terms, with reappointment possible for up to 3
total years.

Interested candidates should send a CV and a "Candidate Statement" outlining
your ideas for ways to add to the TC community and offerings (e.g. events,
resources), any prior professional leadership activities, and a brief
summary of your intended career path. Successful candidates will typically
be drawn from those currently holding Postdoctoral Research or Junior
Faculty appointments (or their equivalent), but exceptions may be made for
especially motivated individuals.

We strongly encourage applications from researchers and practitioners in
Industry, especially those who actively participate in the RAS community
(e.g. attending conferences).

Applications should be sent via email to aaron.dollar at yale.edu, and should
be received by August 31, 2016. Decisions will be made by the TC Co-Chairs.
