The Faculty of Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong is looking for excellent candidates to fill several positions at assistant professor, associate professors and professors levels with prospect for substantiation in Robotics in different partnering departments within the Faculty of Engineering. 

The Chinese University of Hong Kong has set up the CUHK T Stone Robotics Institute, as one of the new initiatives, which focuses its primary research on medical and service robotics through collaboration among experts in engineering, medicine and social science. The Institute plans to build collective strength in the robotics areas by recruiting excellent scholars, in particular with the following expertise:
1: Surgical robots, 
2: Rehabilitation and assistive robots,
3: Medical sensors and robot actuators, 
4: Human-robot interactions and perception, and
5: Machine/robot intelligence. 
Excellent candidates in other areas in Robotics will be considered as well. 

Applicants should have (i) a PhD degree; and (ii) a proven track record or demonstrating potential for teaching and research excellence. 

Appointments will normally be made on contract basis for one to three years initially commencing January 2017, which, subject to mutual agreement, may lead to longer-term appointment or substantiation later. Outstanding candidates with substantial experience for Professor rank may be considered for substantive appointment forthwith.
